When you post a comment/tip/walkthrough a number representing either your gamer (green) or community (blue) level will be listed next to your name. This helps people recognize who you are and what you're good at. The level type presented is your highest one of the two.
There are several ways to get each type of points:
If you mouse-over your current level in your profile you'll see how many points you need to reach the next level as well as a percentage (%) for how many points are already acquired.
Quests are a series of challenges in different games. When completing a quest you will be rewarded with gaming points and a quest badge for your profile page.
By choosing a quest and clicking "start" from the quests page
Each quest gives a different amount of gamer points. The more game points a quest awards, the harder it is. Therefore, if a quest is too hard, try completing a quest with lower gamer points reward. We are adding quests in varying difficulties all the time, so it's worth checking the quests list every now and then.
Yes, if you happen to have achieved a score that is above the one required for a specific task in a quest you will have to achieve that score again and submit it to complete the missions for the quest.
No, you can take as long as you want. You can always pick up quests you left off from the quests page or from your profile page.
Once you achieve the required score, you will need to submit it. If your score meets the mission's
requirements you will get notified that you have completed the missions and will be given a link to the next
mission or will be awarded your badge and gamer points if this was the last mission of the quest.
If you submit your score and do not receive the notification, make sure that your score is indeed sufficient (check the high score table for your name below the game on the right side). If your score is there, please let us know of the problem.
