    First of all, I would like to thank you Gabriel. I really appreciate your work.

    However, from my perspective, I think if the plugin offers points for social actions (shares, likes), that would be extremely great.

    Hey newbiettn

    Thanks for your suggestion. Several members have requested this and I am looking into how this could be done.

    The idea sounds great however some times it could conflict with the ToS of several services. For example Facebook could consider spam if you are giving incentives to like or share your content.

    As much as I would love offering this feature, this is not possible. As Merras pointed out this violates most Social Media sites ToS and the same goes for Sharing Plugins. You might be able to build a Facebook App that could call home on shares but I am no expert in app makings.

    Hey lunchgirl

    Can you link to the plugin? Not sure what "BP checkins" is.

    Sure, here it is:

    I would really like to be able to compete with some other sites on this function.

    Hey lunchgirl.

    Question: How would you see myCRED get integrated with BP Checkins? Points for checking in or points depending on where you check in? Thought that if you have used this plugin you might have some ideas.

    Both, and also points for adding a new place to the community places directory.

    Points for adding a new place is already possible. Looking at the plugin it seems that locations are saved as a custom post type, which means that the "Publish Content" hook should detect the custom post type "places" and let you set points for publishing new ones.

    I will need some time to go though the plugin to see what would be the best solution. At a quick glance I guess the activity feed is the place to be.
