• Users gain Experience points whenever they complete certain tasks. Tasks would include: posting an entry to a contest, winning or placing in a contest, having a tutorial published, having a source image approved, casting a “fair” vote, etc…
  •  Every new user would start at a “beginner” level 1, acquiring experience would “level” him/her up.
  •  Every set of levels has its own title and level set coat of arms.
  •  Experience is also taken into consideration in some special event (seeding for the yearly tournament, gaining the right to take part in certain special contests, bragging rights and more.)
  •  Experience never drops.
  •  Every experience reward received is logged and is visible in one’s citizen record.
  •  Experience earned in a contest is awarded only at the end of it.
