Things as 'how many times did you sell your document(s)' or 'how many review-stars did you receive and how good were they' are important variables. By gaining a certain reputation-score (i.e. a sum of certain achievements) you're able to walk through several statuses. You can find a lot more information about your status (reputation-score), and how to accomplish a better one, in your profile.
By earning Status you're walking through several statuses, starting with Assistant, Junior, Senior, Director, to become a Partner at the end. The higher you've earned a certain status, the higher you'll end up in the search results on Stuvia. Thereby, you'll get more power as a user!
To turn Stuvia in a more personal and gaming situation, you can also earn badges using the platform. This badges-system is based on the activities you take, and the love you're receiving.
For instance, actions could be listed as: pimpin' your profile, uploading documents, downloading documents, or place ratings. Each time you're taking actions, you're gaining points to unlock several interesting badges.
Moreover, there are also happenings within the platform which you cannot influence. We call those happenings, the 'love' you're getting from other Stuvians. They download, or rate your documents, and give you 'love' by doing so.
The beauty of it all, is that all Stuvians now are able to see in one glance whether you are the right person to download / purchase from. The status you're in, the actions you took, the love you've got, it distinguishes you from the mass and helps you making money big time. At the end, that's what it's all about!
