What is the point of having experience points and levels?
Experience Points (XP) are earned for many activities on Snapzu and are used by members to reach higher experience levels. With each level up, certain permanent perks and upgrades are rewarded to each user. XP makes a great way to quickly distinguish new users from experienced users. Most importantly, the XP system is designed to add an element of fun to the community.
How are experience points collected?
Experience points are collected in various ways across the Snapzu platform. Some given immediately when publishing snaps, or posting comments or text posts, while others are given at the end of the day as bonuses for other participation such as placing votes, receiving votes, and getting views on your snaps. Inviting users also earns a generous amount of XP so be sure to share your provided invite codes!
Can I see how I earned my experience points?
Yes, you may click on the XP container located in your profile drop-down menu, accessible by clicking on your avatar on the top right of the top navigation bar (just to the left of the green Submit+ button). On the bottom you will notice a green bar, and clicking it will take you to your XP History area, where a daily tally of all your points is available.
This page essentially serves as a receipt of your experience points, including all additions and negations.
Can I lose experience points?
No, however an IOU system is in place that will count all negated experience points, and until those points are re-earned, your account will not earn additional experience points. These points are negated when a snap or comment (that has earned you points in the past) is removed.
What is the level cap?
There are currently 50 attainable experience levels, which range from novice (level 1) to the truly dedicated (level 50). Level avatars evolve, progressively appearing more advanced with each level. In total there are 50 masculine avatars and 50 feminine avatars.
