MEMBER RANKINGS

WHY MEMBER RANKINGS?

At Line & Sight, our goal is to create a community where our members can share with, learn from and inspire others like themselves who are passionate about everything fishing-related.

To reward our members for sharing their stories and keeping our site stocked with fresh, up-to-date and exciting content, we want to give them something to show off. We’ve created a ranking system that will honor our users with badges that reflect their engagement within our fishing community.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT RANKINGS AND LEVELS I CAN EARN?

Our tier system consists of four ranks: Greenhorn, Junior Angler, Pro Angler and Master Angler. As you might guess, the Greenhorn rank designates new community members and those who are just beginning to actively participate in our interactive community. Junior Angler identifies those members who’ve gotten their feet wet engaging in the community and are moving on up. Pro Anglers are serious community participants, casting in regularly with valuable insights. And, of course, our Master Anglers are highly active and respected community members, sharing their stories, expertise and opinions whenever they can.

Within each rank you can advance through three levels. As you progress in levels, further advancement becomes gradually more challenging. For instance, to move from Greenhorn Level 1 to Level 2 you need to earn 25 points. But when you reach the rank of Junior Angler, you’ll have to add 50 points to advance from one level to the next. The Pro- and Master levels are even more difficult. In other words, we’re not just giving the top honors away—you’ve got to earn them!

You can see the point requirements for each ranking level in the table below:

HOW DO I EARN POINTS?

You can earn points and move up in level/ranking in a number of ways. Posting or sharing a great fishing-related story is the quickest way to earn big points. It can mean even more points if others give you a hook (a “like”) or decide to follow you. Posting comments and regularly visiting Line & Sight are also biggies.
