Summer vacation is over for some of us and we're back in business. Episerver (now Optimizely) has recently rebranded and redesigned their World website. So it's the perfect time to show some stats for 2021 based on public data from https://world.optimizely.com/

World Community Recognition Program

Every time you write a blog post, reply in forums, or your forum post is marked "accepted answer", you get a certain amount of Community Recognition Points (CRP). The same goes for becoming a CMS or Commerce certified developer.

  • Blog post: 5 points
  • Forum post: 2 points
  • Forum post marked as an answer: 8 points
  • Upvote: 1 point
  • CMS certificate: 200 points
  • Commerce certificate: 200 points

Please keep in mind that publicly available data is not 100% accurate, some certificates are not registered, etc. So take this data as a fun fact!

Here are the stats. Enjoy!
