I see the term "gamification" appearing in two moderator election candidates' messages, and there are several questions and answers here that contain references to it.
Is it possible do write a short, unbiased definition of gamification as it applies to Mathematics Stackexchange? For the purposes of a working definition of the concept, in what ways would a more gamified MSE site differ functionally from how it currently operates; particularly from a questioner's perspective.
I'm looking for an objective description of the term as it applies here, not any kind of discussion or evaluation of its "goodness" or "badness". Thanks!
