You need to stay active to stay on top!
How it works
Your score is based on a point system that calculates your activity and news report ratings. The pace at which you move depends on how often you contribute and how the Supernews Public rates the quality of your news report – which depends on you encouraging them to engage. If there’s no activity, you stay at the same level, but if there IS activity and you reach the allocated point benchmark, you’ll climb the ranks and get promoted to the next super status level, eg, go-getter, mover&shaker, etc, which will be reflected by a colour star on your profile. At the end of every month, the Supernews News Team checks to see if you’ve changed status and rewards you accordingly.
