How do you know where you are on the leaderboard? The line on my page with purple and red never changes at all.

  • thanks for asking this question, am looking for ways to up the leaderboard too since it’s new to me hehe.

  • Sometimes there seems to be a time delay in it shifting, too.

  • The more points other people get you get pushed down the leaderboard at the end of the month the person with the most points (of everyone) gets their first preference of a prize. I won a, prize last minth and got my 2nd preferencs. If you click on the rewards section it outlines various ways to accrue points. Under the logon theres another button to view rewards and this shows what you have accrued via last 20 transactions. If you are participating and it is not showing here maybe their is a prob with your logon or your comments etc are not being uploaded. Good luck

  • I also find this interesting as sometimes the line goes up then goes back and I don’t know how many points you need to earn to get into the red area.

  • You need to watch the grey bar – if it hovers in the purple area, you are pretty low down the list, if it’s in the red section, you’re pretty high up. Points are allocated depending on your activity – adding recipes, commenting on posts, etc. The main thing about MoM is just to have fun – read, learn, contribute and join in!

  • If you want to see how the grey bar moves, at the beginning of the new month when it’s back to the start, start commenting, most people don’t so the bar will move very quickly, and if you don’t keep contributing for a while and others do, you’ll see your bar slip back. The more others contribute the more you will have to as well to keep that pesky bar on the move :-)

  • A pleasure MOM 62897! Glad to help. I think you might just be surprised at how quickly you will move up the board. There is so much good ‘stuff’ on this site! Taking a photo and posting is an easy process with good instructions. If you search photos this question has previously been posted and answered. If you have any trouble just ask; happy to help out again! Looking forward to seeing your comments and posts. :)

  • Thank you MOM93821, now I get it, I’ve been looking at the purple and maroon colours to move. Also see I stand no chance of getting to the maroon part of the line, but that’s O.K. at least I now understand that wretched line. One day I’m going to learn how to take a picture, (not of me, something cooked)and put it on here, then a picture could go with a recipe, maybe my project for 2016, hehe.

  • The purple and red bars do not move. The grey line does move. At the beginning of every month it starts at the beginning of the purple section and as you comment, answer, post a recipe or art and craft or a real story it moves along the purple bar. Once it moves along to the red bar; you are in the rewards zone for a prize. Depending on the number of Mom’s being active on the site and commenting, etc; the position(grey bar) can change. Initially it takes a while for the grey bar to start moving. I hope this is helpful? Always ask questions; because Mom’s can help! :)

  • You need to be very very active commenting and uploading stories/recipes and entering competitions! I worked suuuuuuuper hard last month and received a prize but I was commenting on lots and lots of things all day everyday

  • O.K. I still don ‘ the get it. Now be patient, I’m much, much older than all if you, not a friend of technology, and not the smartest rice bubble in the box anyway. If my line is two thirds purple on the left, and one third maroon on the right (see I didn’t use inches) what does that mean? Which colour is meant to move? And which direction? I don’t ask this for any prize or anything, I just want to understand it. None of my children live near by to explain it to me, but when I try to get them to explain anything to do with computers to me, they talk faster than I can hear, and I end up more confused than when I started. Hope you can understand my question.

  • I was in the red at the end of last month, and only just received an email about a prize (yay) so it must have just been a bit delayed.

  • Keep an eye on the line. It looks like it’s not moving, But it is. Maybe at the beginning it’s just a little slower because you need to post more often.

  • The line usually moved as you get more points. Sometimes there has been errors but they are corrected and we are advised if we win.

  • The line should move once you begin commenting, recommending, etc, but you have to keep active if you want it to stay closer to the right end otherwise others will overtake your position. I, like others who have replied, was in the red last month with no email about prizes either so I’m hoping it’s just delayed. I thought it was just me and someone must’ve logged on on the last night and went comment crazy! haha. Hopefully all is well and everyone gets their prizes :-)
