I am excited to announce that we have launched a new feature on RateMyDrawings.
We are constantly trying to find ways to encourage and reward all our artists on RateMyDrawings for all the amazing art they create and help everyone feel appreciated for being part of our community. Our new awards system rewards people with virtual awards that are badges that appear on your profile. Keep an eye out for the "AWARDS" tab on your homepage.
Awards you can receive are:
- Achievement awards or gifts for simply reaching milestones in the number of drawings you create
- Awards for being ranked on our site (in the top 5000, 1000, 500, and 100).
- Most rated drawing today, most commented drawing today, most favorited drawing today
- Award when you become a featured artist
- Moderator hand-picked awards are awards when moderators select one of your drawings for being special either through skill, unique, or encouragement awards
We will continue to think of new award types, but are excited at the awards we offer so far. In particular I am excited about the moderator awards that will help the many many artists who create amazing work that goes un-rated or un-noticed. We now have a chance to reward you for your hard efforts.
In the future, we hope to introduce more ways to receive awards and possibly even more ways for people to send virtual gift awards to one another for things like winners of user competitions. We still need to spend more time thinking about which types of awards like this should be added.
As always, you are welcome to send feedback or suggestions in our forums and I hope this is the start of more RateMyDrawings features that help people feel more rewarded and appreciated in our community.
To help add even more of a personal human touch to our site, we have just added "Awarded" drawings to the homepage, and also as an option on our Top Drawings page.
These are drawings that have been hand-picked by moderators to receive an award for being special either through skill, unique, or effort.
We will to continue to find ways to help our community feel like receiving a rated number is not the only way to gain recognition. Your drawings do not need to be the best on the site to get noticed by a moderator. Simply show us something interesting, unique or show that you put a lot of effort into your drawing and you may get featured on these pages.
