Contributors, reputation points and user profiles
You can now see who is asking questions and sharing answers thanks to addition of new Contributors tab. Contributors can also earn reputation points by getting upvotes for questions or answers, and also for accepted answers (except when question’s author accepts his/her own answer). These changes are meant to encourage Confluence users to contribute in a way that gives value to others.
