What do you guys think of the new way us Gamespot users level up. They just switched it a few days ago. I personally like the old way better. But at least they starting to make some changes to Glichspot.


http://www.gamespot.com/features/changes-to-the-gamespot-user-leveling-system-6389154/



"As with before, there is a daily cap of 2500 XP, but we've completely redone how other XP is earned so that user actions directly contribute to user level":

  • Visiting a GameSpot.com page while logged in: 500 XP (can be earned once a day)
  • Commenting on a story: 20 XP
  • Posting in a forum thread: 20 XP
  • Creating a new comment thread: 30 XP
  • Posting a user blog: 100 XP
  • Earning an emblem/achievement: 50 XP
  • Rating a game: 10 XP
  • Following a game: 10 XP
  • Being followed by another user: 100 XP

I have no opinion, nor do I have anything to contribute. I'm just posting for the XP.

Not at all. The max cap is still the same, so it will still take like 40 years to get through.

someadose seem not balanced.
maybe too many points for posting, not enough for an emblem (unless those are using the ones people can link to their video games ones), and maybe blogs would be exploiiitable.

but seems good, to get people to do stuff if they want.

He mentions the old system being broken. I think there are more important things that need to be fixed before working on the leveling system.

Sounds pretty good. It looks like people will level up much quicker now.

It would be nice to see how much EXP you need per level too.

A few site features need it (posting reviews, making new threads on system wars, posting in the after hours). They are pretty low levels though.

Mostly it's about bragging rights and how much you browse gamespot.

And ruin the good work of the people who were willing to keep track of daily leveling up percentages to find out the daily caps for each level?
