What is the activity counter and how is it determined?

The Activity Counter shows your involvement and engagement in the contest. Each activity on the platform like submitting an App or Idea or leaving a comment will be counted with a specific value. The sum of all of your activities is your activity index. You can check your activity points in "My Area". The following table shows the specific value of the member activities during the contest:
Contribution of 1 App50
Contribution of 1 Idea10
Provide an App or idea with 1 comment3

The evaluation process consists of 2 steps: 1. Community Evaluation Participants of the contest can evaluate Apps & Ideas of other contestants in a community vote by clicking a “thumbs-up” or “thumbs-down” button. Evaluation of Apps • I like this App Evaluation of Ideas • I like this Idea The rating is displayed within the App/Idea pool by showing the percentage of positive votes. In contrast to other functions of the platform, the community tool is only activated for each member with the confirmation of the user’s email in order to avoid fraud with multiple accounts. 2. Jury Evaluation The jury determines the final winners and is urged to evaluate the Apps by the defined evaluation criteria “Idea”, “Interface-Design – Joy of Use” and “Automotiveness”, and “Transformation of Idea”. Process: The community vote serves as filter mechanism for the jury members yet do not have direct influence on the determination of the winning Apps. As a result, the jury is independent from the evaluation done by the community and its judgment therefore is more flexible and might be more accurate for determining the final winners. The jury members will discuss the Apps and thereby mind varying views.
