Monthly Forum rewards - October 2022
Welcome to our October 2022 edition of the Monthly Forum rewards.
We are extremely grateful to have all of you dedicate your time and share your expert knowledge. You are the inspiration to other users, and you are actively helping us build our Community.
In October 2022, many new users entered our top 25, but it was once again @Gokul001 who took the first place and became the first user to win our rewards for three consecutive months! Then we have the runner-up @Sudharsan_Ka who spend a lot of time on our Forum this month, followed by @Yoichi who once again provided more than 100 solutions in a single month.
We are happy that you are helping our users in their automation journey.
As always, you can read October Tutorial category submissions here. And if you didn’t just yet, you should read more about our new Vote on Tutorials category.

Forum rewards changes from November 2022
We are revamping our scoring formula
Starting from November 2022 rewards, we will be simplifying our scoring formula as follows:
- only posts that are a solution will be scored
(the solution must be given by another user and at least 1 solution is required)
- all category-specific score multipliers are removed (all posts are now equal)
- new user bonus is temporarily removed (we will reconsider it in the future)
- these extra Forum activities will continue to grant you an extra score with modified multipliers:
- approved flags on unwanted posts (x5)
- inviting new users to our Forum (x5)
- score for sharing posts with custom user links is temporarily removed
Also, just to refresh the basics, each solution post is scored according to a few simple metrics which allow us to score high-impact content higher:
- likes score (x15)
- bookmarks (x2)
- outside references (x5)
- read time (x0.2)
- the reply count score will no longer be counted due to the shifted focus toward the final solution.
The Certification Discount Vouchers will no longer be part of monthly rewards
Starting from November 2022, we decided to remove the Certification Discount Vouchers from the possible list of rewards for our Forum Monthly rewards.
Instead, we will run different Forum events that will be better suited for this type of reward
Top 10 rewards
As always, the starting point is that only the top 10 users are certain of a reward and only the entire top 25 receives the badge
Please remember that all users are able to:
- pass the reward to the next user in line
- opt for one of 6 certification discount vouchers:
- 3 x -50% for the UiPath Certified RPA Associate exam
- 3 x -50% for the UiPath Certified Advanced RPA Developer exam
We will send each user from the top 25 a private message with a form to fill in to be able to collect all replies in a timely fashion and lock in the final distribution of the rewards. Winners will have until 2022-11-20T00:00:00Z to fill in the form.
No reply by this date will default to you passing on the reward to the next user in line.
Certification Discount vouchers
Requirement → at least 1 of your posts in October 2022 was marked by another user as a solution.
If you meet this requirement, you can fill in this form for a chance to receive the discount for one of the UiPath Certified RPA exams:
<link is removed because all discount vouchers were claimed>
Please fill it in before 2022-11-20T00:00:00Z.
On that date, we will consolidate all responses with the ones from the users in the top 25 and grant the discount certification vouchers to users highest on our internal scoreboard for October 2022.
After that date, if there are still vouchers to be given away, we will continue to take form submissions and distribute the remaining vouchers on a first-come, first-served basis, but we will always keep the requirement of at least 1 solution given in October 2022.
Therefore, users outside of the top 25 will no longer receive the Forum badge, but can still earn the certification discount voucher. We will update the scoreboard to include those late entries (see posts for previous months as examples)
Thank you all for your contributions. The new month has already started and we will continue rewarding consistent, high-quality contributions each month. Go ahead and share your knowledge to earn your winning spot next month!
PS. The rewards table also contains a column with a country. It has been pre-filled based on each user’s profile when available. If your country flag is missing or wrong, feel free to let us know and we will update it
Feel free to share below any idea for additional multipliers to our scoring system or other improvements we could make to our Monthly Forum Rewards. We’re always looking to improve.
