The concept of gamification is nothing new. Many webmasters have used gamification techniques to enhance user engagement on their websites. Thanks to the WP User Achievements Plugin, you can implement this concept on your own website. The plugin enables user badges on your blog. These provide your visitors with incentives to stay active in your community.
WP User Achievements enables 11 achievement automatically for your visitors. They can earn points for posting comments or reading your posts. You can create and assign custom achievements for your visitors. The badges that your visitors earn will be shown on the comments page and under user profile. You won’t have to edit your theme to get this to work (in most cases).
The WP User Achievements script is worth checking out if you have trouble keeping people engaged in your community. It could be a difference maker.
