Upgrade to the Writer Ranking System coming SOON!
We get a lot of questions from Bleacher Report writers about how they can move up, say, from Contributor to Columnist. Writers want to know exactly how these labels work.
We haven’t always had great answers for these questions. But that’s about to change. We’ve got a new ranking system that is set to launch this week, and we want to give you a little preview we go live with it.
Why we’re doing this: B/R’s Writer Ranking System is designed to help Bleacher Report writers track their career progress both on a personal basis and in comparison to their peers in the B/R community. What we’re trying to do with this upgrade is provide more transparency to writers about what they can do to advance to the next level of sportswriting.
The basic ingredient is points.
Our new system awards points to writers for the following things:
- Receiving medals
- Writing consistently
- Winning top writer awards for eligible leagues and teams
What are points for? Points help you advance to the next writer title. So, for example if you’re a Contributor and want to advance to Analyst, earning points will get you there.Important: The title you have now is not changing!
If you’re an Analyst today, you’ll be an Analyst when we launch the new system. If you’re a Featured Columnist, you’ll be a Featured Columnist, and so on.
As always, there may be a kink here or there as we roll this feature out to all of our writers. If you see something amiss once the new system launches, let us know. We’ll be listening, and our smart people will work hard to make sure that the transition goes smoothly for everyone.
