Promotion System (User Ranks)

What is the promotion system?
On the 25th of May 2010 we saw a new user ranking system introduced on the forum called the "Promotion System". This system is much more advanced than the previous system where users advance to new usergroups and gain a few extra features for their account.

What is the purpose of the Promotion System?
The purpose of this system is so that users posts more frequently on the forum but also break the forum rules less so that they don't lose their account due to banning and having to start from the bottom of the promotion system again.

The Ranks & Features

  • Gold
  • Ruby
  • Sapphire
  • Emerald
  • Platinum
  • Habbox God
New ranks will be added when more users advance through them. It takes about an hour for your account to advance to the next level once you have the requirements. Each new rank gives you some new account features for you to enjoy. Below we show that those features are:

Features Gold Ruby Sapphire Emerald Platinum Habbox God
PM Storage 200 300 400 500 600 600

The Stars
For each rank, you have to go through 4 stars before advancing to the next rank. Obviously it gets harder to gain more stars as you advance through the groups to keep it challenging for older members with lots of posts. Here are the stars in order:

  • Gold
  • Ruby
  • Sapphire
  • Emerald
  • Platinum
Here are the requirements for each star in each group:
  • Gold: To be in this userrank you must have between 0 and 1000 posts. For each extra star you need 250 posts.
  • Ruby: To be in this user rank you must have between 1001 and 2500 posts. For each extra star you would need 375 posts.
  • Sapphire: To be in this user rank you must have between 2501 and 5000 posts. For each extra star you would need 625 posts.
  • Emerald: To be in this userrank you must have between 5001 and 10000 posts. For each extra star you would need 1250 posts.
  • Platinum: To be in this userrank you must have between 10,001 and 20,000 posts. For each extra star you would need 2500 posts.
  • Habbox God: To be in this userrank you must have over 20,001 posts OR have your account registered for 10 years AND have 5,000+ posts (click here for more information). For each extra star you would need 10,000 posts.

Note: Please note that if your account is not 10 years old and you have 20,000+ posts, you will still be placed in Habbox God

Bonus Reputation Points
As well as gaining extra stars and features with the promotion system, we also like to reward you with bonus reputation points for the posts that you make. For example, for every 2500 posts you make as a platinum member, you gain 25 reputation points added to your total! This system is entirely automated, so if you notice your total increase for seemingly no reason, this is why.

Reputation

Reputation is something that enables other members to see what other people have rated you. How well a member is rated is shown with green or red blocks. A new member starts with 50 reputation points.

Reputation is split into 2 different categories: Positive and Negative.

+Rep
People give out positive reputation for such things as:

  • Funny threads or posts
  • Good room designs
  • Good ideas
  • Good graphics / alterations
  • Helpful posts
This is known as +Rep, when someone +Reps you it will give you as many reputation points as their rep power holds. For example, if someone has 10 rep power, you will receive 10 reputation points.
When you view your rep comments, +Rep is displayed as a Green block positive reputation image.

-Rep
When you do something bad you will most likely receive -Rep. You may receive a -Rep for the following reasons:

  • Pointless Posting
  • Being rude
  • Breaking the forum rules
-Rep is displayed as a Red block negative reputation image.

When you receive a -Rep, it takes half of the persons reputation power from your total reputation points. For example, if someone had 10 rep power, you would lose 5 reputation points if they gave you a -Rep.

Sometimes negative reputation can be unfair, if you feel this is the case then you can report it in this forum.

Giving Reputation
Giving reputation is quite simple, you simply click the star-like figure at the bottom of someone's post (this varies between skins), you can then select either "I Approve" or "I Disapprove" - you must then leave your comment, which is basically what you think about the post. Then click submit!

Viewing Reputation
You can see your reputation level by clicking on User CP. Only VIP users can see who issued them reputation, but all normal users can still see reputation comments. Remember Green blocks positive reputation image add to your reputation, Red Blocks negative reputation image deduct from it.

Reputation Power
Reputation Power (Rep Power) is that amount of points that you can take or give to someone's reputation. Your rep power increases by 1 point for every:

  • 2500 posts
  • 400 Reputation points
  • 365 days (1 year) registered on the forum.

Disable Reputation
In your User Control Panel you are able to disable other members from viewing your reputation level (note: even when disabled Administrators can still view!). To disable your reputation you can do the following:

  1. Click here to go to your account options
  2. Select "Hide Reputation" from the top option.
  3. Click submit down the bottom and bingo, your reputation level is no longer displayed!
You can tell when a member has disabled their reputation, as it will be displayed as a Grey Block disabled reputation image.
Note: Disabling your reputation does not mean people cannot +Rep or -Rep you. It simply means they are unable to see the level which you are at.


What are those green blocks under my profile information?
Those blocks show the amount of reputation you have. There are 4 different coloured reputation blocks.

  • dark green reputation block This is a dark green reputation block, you get these for the first 500 reputation points.
  • light green reputation block This is a light green reputation block, you get these for every 200 points above 500 points you go.
  • disabled reputation block This means the user has disabled their reputation.
  • red reputation block This is a red reputation block, this user has received many bad reps and has no rep power.
Note: You cannot rep the same person more than once until 7 days passes since you last repped them.
Note: Only 5 dark and 6 light green blocks will ever appear under your profile information. However you can still receive reputation.
