As a QC (Qualified Contributor), one of the perks is the chance to qualify for a gift every quarter (or every 3 months)!

Every 3 months, the top 50 Contributors will receive prizes based on their positions on the community page’s Awesome Contributors leaderboard, including a bonus tier for the top 3* Contributors each month! (Please note that this is separate from the annual QC gift.)

There are four quarters in a year, and thus four times a year you can qualify for the quarterly gift:

    • Spring Quarter: January 1 – March 31
    • Summer Quarter: April 1 – June 30
    • Fall Quarter: July 1 – September 30
    • Winter Quarter: October 1 – December 31

*At the end of each month, the Top 3 users will qualify for the bonus tier. However, if you rank in the Top 3 more than once within a quarter (3-month period), you will not be eligible to obtain 2 rewards until the following quarter. This will ensure that there will always be a total of 9 unique users who will receive the bonus prize within each quarter.



Q: I don’t want to appear on the leaderboard. How do I opt in or out?

A:  On your Project Finder Preferences page, you can choose to opt in or opt out of appearing on the leaderboard.

  1. Visit Project Finder
  2. Click on Preferences
  3. On the Preferences page, you will see Opt-out of the community leaderboard
  4. Check Hide me from the community leaderboard
  5. Be sure to click Save preferences

Please note that if you choose to opt out of the leaderboard, you cannot opt back in until the next quarter. This is to ensure fairness to all other participants, as well as to ensure transparency on the leaderboard.
