Pixel Joint Leveling Up

on: March 03, 2006, 04:44:04 pm
Howdy peeps,

Since a large chunk of the Pixelopolis board also are members of Pixel Joint I wanted to announce the first big membership change... Leveling Up!

Benefits of Leveling Up
As you level up you'll gain the ability to give out more rating points for pixel art and more karma points* for rating other members comments. You'll also get new rank titles for the rank theme you've selected as you move up.

How to Level Up
You go up in rank by accumulating points which you collect by contributing to Pixel Joint. Points can be collected by commenting on pixel art and news, posting pixel art, rating pixel art, posting links and posting news. Contests and having top notch pixel art will also get you special bonus points.

  • Posting Pixel Art = 6 points
  • Submitting News = 5 points
  • Submitting Links = 4 points
  • Posting Comments = 3 points*
  • Rating = 1 point

Why Bother?
Mostly just for fun, but we also want to help newer pieces get exposure in the hall of fame. As more and more people gain rank newer pixel art pieces will have a chance to "catch up" to the point total of older pieces because most people won't take the time to re-rank older pieces. This should help keep the top ranked art a nice mix of fresh work and old favorites. Plus, it's always nice to have more power (feel free to toss your head back and let out a hearty villain laugh).

*KARMA COMING SOON! We plan to put in a reputation/karma system which will allow members to give points to a person if their comment is insightful and subtract points if their comment is off topic or spam. To prevent abuse of the karma system, points will not directly change the point total for another member. Admins will use the karma system to keep an eye out for how members are doing. This will make it easy to distribute awards and kudos to stellar members and point zaps and bans to members who are abusing the system.
