Marjorie -

Whether it's on PMI's LinkedIn discussion group or here, answering questions is the best way I can contribute. I blog actively on my personal site and via LinkedIn so I don't have enough original content each week to do the same over here otherwise I'd have been happy to contribute that way!

Well I had a speel all lined up until I just saw my influence drop from 71 to 65 in the last hour, despite numerous posts and being second most active on this site for some time. You really should look at that algorithm!

The algorithm is not fair in some ways. the scores regularly drop and increase based on your daily activity. It seems that members are supposed to work for this purpose at least on a part time basis!

I think the site had an overall change. I saw the same surprise on influence. Maybe one day we’ll get a post from PM.com to Explain.
Also the inbox is much faster to open today!

First, it is better to clarify what you mean by community. If you mean this website, the best way will probably be answering the questions as Kiron mentioned earlier. Otherwise, as a member of a community, you are supposed to apply your knowledge and skills to serve better and lead others, because they may not be talented as you are in the knowledge area.

Hi Abolfazi,

That's a great point - for the sake of community, I mean your local community versus the ProjectManagement.com community.

Thank you!

Hello Abolfazl and Sante,

The influence scores are not meant to be static, but are more based on how you interact and contribute within the community and how often. You can find more information below:

To keep this thread on topic, if you have additional questions about influence you can e-mail contactus@projectmanagement.com.

Thank you!

that's intersting Marjorie, as the last week my content has been more "often" which is why it rose to 71, and then yesterday after what I would consider the same if not more content than usual, its dropped 6 points within 1 hour of checking my profile.

I focus on community contributions through online engagement whether here, LI, or elsewhere.

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to speak to groups of High School students about the profession and how project management can have an immeadiate impact in their everyday lives. I think a few of them listened. :)

I could help small businesses (Mom & Pop-type stores, most likely) incorporate elements of project management into their business practices. My goal would be to demystify project management, and show how it can practically benefit them.
