How do I earn McR points?


Whenever you contribute your thoughts, ideas, opinions or valuable motorcycle rider info to McR, you'll be making this community stronger.  The following shows some of the activities that will earn McR points:
     - submitting a new motorcycle riding route
     - giving your review & rating of an existing route you have driven
     - adding a motorcycle rider photo or video to a route
     - sharing a route with a friend
     - liking a motorcycle rider photo or video
     - adding a route to your "To Ride" list
     - adding a route you have driven to your "Rode It" list
     ... and many more activities you'll find on the site

It's obvious how some of the above activities benefit all McR members such as when riders contribute a new motorcycle route, a rating/review of a route, photo, or video.  This type of information simply makes McR a stronger and more in-depth source information on the best motorcycle roads and rides in America, Canada, and abroad.  However, some activities on the list above may not be as obvious as to how they contribute value, so let me explain.  Activities such as you sharing a route with another motorcycle riding friend who may have not been part of the McR community can have a big impact.  Let's say that rider wasn't aware of McR or maybe hadn't visited in a while and therefore, when they come to McR they will bring in a new/unique motorcycle rider perspectives and information about favorite roads and rides in their area.  With their new and unique perspective, it is likely they'll turn around and add a couple of their favorite motorcycle roads, maybe add  a couple of ratings/reviews, and maybe even a photo or video.  By doing this, your sharing of that motorcycle road with a friend just increased the site for all of us.   Also, other little activities like giving a thumbs-up to a photo or video you like will help the best content "bubble up" to the top so riders can more quickly see the most popular content.  And, even by just adding a road to your "Rode It" list, your "To Ride" list, and even just "following" a route send out "signals" that help other McR members see which routes are gathering a lot of attention and trending.  For all these activities and more, you'll be making McR a fresher and more dynamic resource of information for riders which will in turn help all of us motorcycle riders put together great motorcycle rides ... and so for that reason, you will really be earning your points!
