Do you know how to use "gamification"?

​"Gamification" is a method of encouraging user participation. Usually, these are a set of fictional incentives such as points or achievement badges.
It originated with Frequent Flyer programs and has crossed over into the software world with the success of FourSquare.
This concept is being utilized even in Visual Studio.
