The Community Recognition Program is a way to recognize each person's contributions to the ASP.NET community. Answer questions or moderate in the forums, submit content to the gallery or showcase, and comment on a video are all ways people can contribute to the site.
In the ASP.NET community we have a number of people whose contributions help developers from all over the world. Visit the Hall of Fame page and view the stars.
If you'd like to rise through the levels and see your name in the Hall of Fame, all you need to do is participate in the ways listed below.

The program is very simple. Various activities on the site have points associated with them, and when a community member does that activity he or she will receive that many points.
