Getting asked this a lot by new members via PM and have seen it in chat many times as well in the past, so thought this could help. The best way is to join big Forum Events like the Ogre Game Freedom Event and claim all the activities you do there. Click here for current events! Not only are you active by participating thus earning points, the Events also have rewards such as a Rixty Card. Have seen many members get all kinds of rewards over the years. Usually the more they participate in the better. On the flip side, those that "retire" or "take an Event off" usually (there have been exceptions) don't do well after that. Why do Events help so much? I think they provides structure to continue and to be more known in the community. Not surprisingly, almost all Event participants wind up being nominated for Member of the Month.
