You may have noticed the Badges section of your My Home area.
Here are some more detail on the badges that you can collect on CompletelyNovel to show what a wonderful and helpful user you are! OK, so you are not going to be able to pin these to your lapel and wear around town, but they will be displayed with pride on your My Home section in a little area we like to call the Trophy Cabinet.
Here are more details on what all the badges mean, how you can increase your badge ‘level’ and how to get more!
Navigating your way through the vast array of books out there, devouring the written word and dancing across the spines of the classics is no easy task. We reward your ninja skills with the appropriate grading belts.
|White Belt – You are building up your skills, but you have some way to go. Keep reading.|
|Orange Belt – Your skills grow stronger by the day, but you are no master yet. Keep reading!|
|Blue Belt – Yep…you sure know how to read. Hone your ninja skills by reading more!|
|Green belt – You’ve read 100 books, you are on the way to becoming a champion! Remember: with great power comes great responsibility. Get reviewing!|
|Purple Belt – Your reading ninja skills are strong indeed! The ultimate level of righteousness is achieved through selflessness and teaching.|
|Black Belt – You are a reading master. Your fearsome knowledge and ability to slice through books is noted and respected.|
We like to think of ourselves as a sociable bunch on CompletelyNovel, and that’s why we want to reward other people who interact with t he rest of our members too. The community badge is awarded for people who connect with other people on CompletelyNovel. You can clock up points and reach higher levels by following people on the website. The more people that you follow, the more we think you rock.
|Level One – Newbie||You have connected! Give more…get more!|
|Level Two – Friendly||Friendly, approachable, like to socialise. Follow and get followed and you’ll be really popular!|
|Level Three – Popular||Well known and liked. Keep following and getting followed an you’ll be the life of this place!|
We have a lot of new writers on CompletelyNovel who are looking for readers to offer feedback support and hopefully even buy their book. It’s a tough world out there for a writer, and we think that anyone who can offer a little time, money or advice to them is a complete star. We want to recognise those people with our Supporting New Writing Badge – you are reading pioneers and we salute you!
|White Rosette||You are a champion of new books!|
|Orange Rosette||As a publishing community, we salute you!|
|Blue Rosette||You could find the next Harry Potter at this rate!|
|Bronze Cup||You are a true champion of creativity. Keep it up!|
|Silver Cup||Your generosity knows no bounds. Good on yer!|
|Gold Trophy||You are an ambassador of creativity. Much love and respect.|
There are some people who are fantastically generous with their time and knowledge when it comes to helping out other members of the community who have questions. These people will also even start conversations and discussions which is a great way to get people involved and increase their knowledge. We love these people…possibly more than we love our own families. So in recognition, we bring you the imaginatively titled ‘Helpful Member’ badge.
|Handy||You have helped answer people’s questions and shared some reviews|
|Helpful||A good person to have at hand – helpful and generous with their time.|
|Indispensable||We can’t do without you, you make this place tick!|
|CompletelyHelpful||If you ran a country it would probably be the best country in the world|
Your CompletelyNovel status and number of Respect points are displayed in your Home area. You can earn Respect points by being active on the CompletelyNovel website – by publishing books, answering questions, having others ‘like’ your answers, adding book reviews and generally being a valuable and awesome human. The points are translated into a ‘status’ which demonstrates just how respectable you are:
You have much to learn young grasshopper.
Up and running.
You certainly have a taste for books!
We are in the presence of greatness
A prestigious No-vel prize for you. (Geddit?!)
There is nothing holding you back, fly free!
Reading abilities forged in the fires of Mordor!
