  • You don't get points for uploading. You get points when others download or give ratings. Also, points are only updated periodically. There can be a substantial delay. If you feel there is a problem, you can email:

    fissues [at] microsoft [dot] com

    Edit: This document includes a table detailing how to earn points for Gallery contributions:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/ff395928(v=msdn.10)

    There are several download milestones. You need to achieve at least 20 downloads of the contribution, after which you earn 20 points. Or if the contribution gets a 3 star rating (out of 5), you earn 2 points. More points are awarded for greater milestones. It is common to experience a delay before the points are reflected in your profile. I believe the admins must run a batch job periodically to update points and achievements.

  • Thanks for your Information. Yes, i know the points you get is for only when someone downloads your uploaded script, but i have uploaded a script while back and it was downloaded by 100+ times but i haven't get a single point for that.

    Thanks & Regards,

  • I'd suggest sending an email to fissues [at] microsoft [dot] com with details of the problem you experience so admins can investigate.

  • Your profile activities shows this now. Could you refer to either of these two contributions?

    The Move SharePoint Search Temp Location contribution has been downloaded 100 times from the Technet Gallery. Awesome!
    Gallery | 15 days ago
    The Update Term Store at Site Collection Level for SharePoint contribution has been downloaded 100 times from the Technet

    If not, emailing fissues, as suggested, is the best option.
