Our team of editors credits 20, 19, 60, 2000 or 60 points for each content – those that help the most in understanding of the country’s time receive more points. Over time, this score is reduced, as newer content also tends to be more relevant in understanding the news. Thus, your score in this system is dynamic: it increases when you read and decreases when you stop being informed. At the moment the score is being made only in content related to the federal government.
