Inspired by the Warcraft 3 Hero experience progress bar. Members of the Hive Workshop can gain EXP (experience points) by posting on the forums, receiving a positive reaction (Like, Love, Wow and Haha), submitting a resource or winning contests (EXP BOOST). Gaining EXP increases your level. Depending on your level, your EXP Progress Bar will change color. More colors may be added in the future. Once you reach a specific level you can unlock new rank icons.
AMOUNT OF EXP GAINED BY:
- Posting messages +1 EXP
- Creating a thread +2 EXP
- Receiving a positive reaction +5 EXP.
- Submitting a tutorial +20 EXP
- Submitting a resource +20 EXP
- Winning a contest +X EXP
- Getting a 3-5 Star Rating +4-6 EXP
- Getting a Director's Cut Rating +50 EXP
*The amount of EXP gained is subject to change.
Becoming a Hero can increase the amount of EXP you receive from posting, receiving a positive reaction (Like, Love, Wow and Haha) or submitting a resource by up to 100% more.
We did not want to implement a reputation system when all communities these days use reactions. Reactions also happen to work better on mobile.
Current reputation is converted to XenForo 2 reactions such as like, love and angry. The old Reputation messages are converted to profile posts. Reputation contest awards are converted to experience awards.
