I have posted a bolg on SCN on "SAP ERP Manufacturing - Production Planning (SAP PP)" Topic "Understanding Production Order Variance - Part 1". Kindly let me know what is the procedure for publishing the blog and how points will be assigned.
The procedure for publishing the blog is as follows.
1. The author prepares the draft and submits the same in the weblog.
2.An expert in the corresponding area will review the blog, it will take mazimum of 2 weeks.
3.If the blog is ok to be published, it will be published.
4.Or if correction needed, then it will be sent back to the author to do the changes.
The points will be provided based on the reaction of the readers such as likes, comments. Considering those parameters, the expert will assign points to your blog.
I'm not sure about reviewing procedure in New SCN. It seems that it's gone. Today I create a blog post in SCN Support space, hit the publish button and that's it. And also I've seen some blog posts in topic spaces with questions from folks. Such questions... definitely for discussions, you know. So they were published and then deleted by authors or moderators, I believe.
The process is different in the new SCN. Blogs are published right away, as soon as the author saves and hits publish. 10 points are assigned automatically to the blog and additional feedback points are assigned when the community reacts on the content by liking, ratings (4 or 5 stars) and sharing it. For more information, see the FAQ about recognition and points.
Ranjit: I checked your reputation tab (user profile) and didn't see any points. I created a ticket and will see what IT finds out. Ticket # is 1554.
Andrei: Yes you are right. Content should be created where and how it is supposed to be. A question must be created as a Discussion thread. A document cannot be used for a question, and we Moderators delete these when we see them, after notifying the author to republish. We urge the community to hit the abuse report button to raise such issues, we want to ensure quality in the topic spaces.
Ranjit John Leon Limson IT came back to me, they could not reproduce the issue. Before I follow up with them, can you confirm that you drafted and published the blog in the topic space, e.g. ERP, CRM, etc?
If you create a blog in your personal space (e.g. mine is called "laure.cetin"), there will be no points assigned. And when you move the blog to a space such as ERP or CRM, the 10 points for blog creation are not assigned either. You just start accruing points for feedback given by the community: likes, stars etc.)
Let me know what exactly you did.
