Why offer XP on an education site? You've heard it before that online learning is tough, and it is hard to keep track of your progress or visual history of how far you've come.
CG Cookie created XP and Levels to give a meaning of measurement of your time and actions while learning from the Cookie.
Members may earn XP by participating in positive activities on the site: receiving loves on an uploaded image, getting your image featured, passing a quiz, etc.
The XP you earn helps you increase you CG Cookie Level. You're level is displayed on your dashboard. Each level has it's own custom badge.
The exact details of how they are awarded is kept a secret, well not too secret, however we'd prefer to keep it a mystery to avoid members cheating the game.
In the end, XP is for you.
Finding ways to earn more XP to bump you up on the list only affects you and the perception of progression the site.
To keep track of your XP, visit your stats tab to view how much more XP is needed to reach the next level,.
A little completion can spark creativity and a dive to keep pursuing your goals. CG Cookie has created the leader board to showcase some of the top performing members on CG Cookie. Visit the Leader Board
