Simply Put: The more reviews, questions, answers and comments you
write and the more photos and videos you upload, the higher your ranking will
be. You get three points for every video, photo or review, two points for
every answer, and one point for every question, comment and wish list. If you
use your real name, you’re rewarded with a 1.5x boost for each submission.
Why? Because you deserve credit for trusting your judgment and putting your
reputation on the line to make this community better.
Being Helpful Counts: You gain an extra point every time someone gives one of your
reviews, gear photos, videos, questions, answers or comments a thumbs up.
time progresses, your point total will decrease. Why? We want the
Leaderboard to reflect the current contributors, not the person who did
something 3 years ago and hasn't been back since. Points have a
half-life of 190 days, which means that 1 point will be worth .5 points after
190 days and .25 points after 380 days.
Overall Store Ranking:This is the number under your name on the Leaderboard and at
the top of your Profile. This number represents how you compare to all the
other gear freaks in the Backcountry.com community.

Employees tab of the leaderboard. Click here to search for Gearheads who have
used the products you're looking for or to browse through the profiles of the
