    volunteering hours would be based on how many questions you have helped with

    Check the OS's blog: http://blog.openstudy.com/2014/09/12/need-community-service-hours/ They have attached the volunteer record that they made for me. I asked Ms.Preetha long time ago for my volunteer record before they put it on the Emporium, so I'm not 100% sure if they will provide the same thing or if they will put some changes to it. Oh yeah, for the recommendation letter, I just got one. Ms. Preetha will basically include how are you doing in this site. Almost the same with the volunteer record that I've got but it is more detailed.

    If you purchase it from the Emporium, it will ask you how many medals/questions and SS do you have.

    " 60% of OpenStudy users answer less than 10 questions (Average = 113 answers). On average, users spend about 2 minutes in answering a question." So multiply that time by the number of questions you've answered and just convert it to hours. (That's how they calculate mine)
