I really love the gamipress system I ended up buying he full personal pass for it. The only thing its missing is a virtual item shop but still would give this system 10 stars if I could.

Comprehensive and easy to use. Works seamlessly with Ultimate Member. Thank you, I didn't need anything fancy, so the free plug in is perfect.
October 17, 2020
I tried this plugin, and quickly found out it doesn’t offer a lot of options to hand out points. I wanted to gamify the work editors on my website do, but I can only offer points for published posts and consecutive logins. What I wanted to do was give out points for edits made, to incentivize more editorial work. So I uninstalled the plugin, and to my surprise, it keeps sending out points for consecutive logins. So now I have to install again just so I can remove the points system I implemented. I’m really not impressed.
