New Bleacher Report Writer Ranking System is live
Update, July 29, 10:45 a.m.: We’ve made some changes in response to the feedback we got on this post. Here’s a new post by Dave Morrison with an explanation.
As promised the other day, Bleacher Report’s new Writer Ranking System is here.
The smart people on our product team have been working hard to overhaul the way writers move up through the ranks at Bleacher Report. The new system aims to be more descriptive, with 24 levels instead of the former six, and more transparent.
The rankings are based on points you earn for various writing achievements, and it’ll be clear to B/R writers at their Writer HQ pages how many points they need to get to the next level.
No more wondering what you have to do to move up to, say, “Columnist.”
The new ranking system doesn’t mean everybody has to go back to the starting line. All B/R writers will start out with the ranking they already had and the commensurate number of points in the new system.
This page has a full explanation of the new paradigm.
Check it out, Bleacher Report writers. We know you’ll have questions, complaints, suggestions and maybe even a few words of praise. Let’s make the comments section of this blog post the place where we discuss the new system. The smart people on the product team will be watching and responding.
