I do not understand the purpose of missions on this site. I recently completed my first author mission and quite naturally I expected to receive the 50 points as advertised. All that transpired was the number 1 appearing in the author mission icon.
Since the primary purpose of this site is for SolidWorks users to help each other point totals and completed missions are arbitrary. This site has been personally beneficial to me in answering questions yet still I can't help but wonder what purpose mission counters play. The number of completed missions does not have any bearing on a correct answer to someone's question.
