Arena Rewards Program (ARP)

1

Earn Points

Earn points by uploading content, posting in the forums, voting on content and participating in community activities.

2

Get Rewards & Perks

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


How to Earn Points

Step #1 is to ALWAYS check your "ARP STATUS" indicator on the bottom right of the screen by clicking on it. Complete the tasks to earn ARP!

Daily Quests

Earn points each day by completing various quests around the site. These can include creating content, entering contests, updating your profile, and more. Quests change daily, so make sure to check your ARP Status every day.

Voting on Content

Earn 1 ARP for every 5 votes you distribute. Voting helps curate the content on the site by rewarding members who contribute positively. Votes affect a member's Community Gain (CG) rewarding that member with additional ARP.

Consecutive Daily Logins

Earn extra ARP for logging on to the site in consecutive days. This bonus ARP resets after 10 days of consecutive logins.

Community Gain (CG)

Earn ARP based on how the community votes on your content.

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