    In what is possibly our best kept secret - the staff at GBAtemp are proud to announce the launch of the GBAtemp Experience Points system!

    GBAtemp Experience Points

    Before today, you were able to Like a post on our forum to show appreciation for a helpful post by another forum member, but ultimately the Likes gained by members didn't account for anything.

    Now, with the GBAtemp Experience Points system we are introducing a levelling system that is powered by your content.

    With the XP system we are pushing to encourage a more positive forum experience by providing more incentive to those who contribute to the GBAtemp community!

    Gaining XP

    XP is gained whenever you post helpful and constructive content - such as by posting a helpful reply; creating a popular thread; submitting a review or tutorial; getting a User Submitted News article promoted to the front page among many other ways...

    To see a full and maintained list of ways to gain (and lose) XP please follow see the XP help page.

    Every time your content gets recognised your current XP count will increase by a certain pre-determined value depending on the content.

    Level Up!

    When your XP count reaches a certain threshold you will be promoted to the Next Level. Just how many levels are there? That's for you to find out!

    You can keep an eye on your current XP and level in your Account Menu or thread-side postbit, as shown in the image below.

    When you level up you will receive a forum notification alerting you!

    What treats are there in store for high ranking members? Besides bragging rights, the GBAtemp staff are working on perks so stay tuned for more information...

    Leaderboards


    If you wish to compare your current standing with other GBAtemp members you can do so by following the link to the XP leaderboard below.

    On this page you can see detailed statistics on other members such as their current XP and level and when they will level up next.

    Is this a fresh start?

    No. We value all our members previous efforts in making GBAtemp a successful and bustling resource of information and have taken previous contributions into account. We have assigned all members a current level based on previous contributions and activity. To see a detailed explanation of how this was calculated, please see the XP help page.

    __________________________

    We hope you enjoy using the GBAtemp Experience Points system and hope you find it a fun way to take part at GBAtemp.net

    Please note, we are still fine tuning the system so don't be surprised if you see any sudden changes to your XP count - we are also working on many other ways to gain XP and these will be rolled out as they become available.

    For a complete rundown on the new system please see the XP help page linked below.

    As always with the launch of a new feature, please do let us know if you encounter any bugs or issues with the XP system in the thread below.

    Exciting, I've been waiting to see what this "super secret project" is for a while now! Hopefully this will add incentive for user-created reviews and news articles

    @shaunj66 sorry to tag you, but the xp section on mobile devices have cut letters. You still can read it but it is more like a cosmetic/appareance mistake.

    They're still there, nothing's happened to them. They just play a factor into the XP system now

    I noticed that too but thought it was just my browser, good to know I'm not the only one. But yes, all the headers and some of the text cuts off to the right side

    Let's be honest here, has this even happened yet? :wtf:

    Also I have another question. It's about likes. I know it's a feature on the site, i know it exist but it's also a very sketchy situation, how much consideration with including that in the exp system was there to prevent abuse of it? :unsure:

    EOF and Introductions don't count towards XP, it would seem, so that honestly eleminates most forms of abuse that I can tell...

    This is... interesting.

    Where does it stop leveling up?

    Level 99? Level 9999? ∞?

    Awesome to see this, great job on this. Was this a custom implementation, or a plug-in?
