Get Rewards & Perks

Gain community levels with your CRP points and receive exclusive rewards and special perks.

How to Earn Points

There are two ways you can earn ARP: Daily Activities and from your Community Gain. You are limited on the amount of ARP you can earn from Daily Activities. There is no cap on how much ARP you can earn from your Community Gain.

Reward Levels

The points that you accumulate will automatically go toward the next level and following rewards. Rewards are cumulative.

Community Gain (CG)
  • CG is affected by other members voting on your posts
  • Every post has its own CG tally
  • Higher-level members affect CG greater than lower levels
  • CG’s scores and level values are not publically viewable
  • The visual number on each post shows the total number of upvotes minus the total number of downvotes, not your post’s CG tally
  • As your CG raises on a post, you will gain additional ARP
  • If your post’s CG drops below a certain threshold, the post will be automatically hidden and marked for review. If it is removed, the following ARP deductions will occur:
    • Loss of all ARP gained from the post
    • -10 ARP
    • Loss of ARP for any member who upvoted the removed post

Rewards are automatic and you will receive an e-mail when you achieve them. Rewards are subject to change.
