Travel Forums System Talk Types of members

Just curious to understand the meanings of different member types here on Travellerspoint. What is the difference between a budding member, a full member, a respected member etc?

Thanks,

Irene

Hello Irene!

The 'label' changes with how much contribution you make to the site: forums, blogs and featured photos. Rather like VT, except that VT forum and overall rankings were separated. I haven't been able to find any exact details (e.g. number of blogs required for 'respected' status) but wouldn't expect to do so.

I haven't made any blogs yet but I do contribute to the forum, have a profile page and have had a few featured photos (taken from the VT photos which I chose to import before VT was destroyed).

:-)

In addition to what leics said, guide contributions also are counted towards this.

And there is special weighting for featured content. So if you have a lot of featured photos for example you will go up the levels much quicker. in addition to that, it is weighted against other members, so it is also possible to go down a level if other members have increased their levels.
