Performance Level Badge Requirements Update!
We are happy to announce that we will be making some updates to the Performance Level Badge Requirements. We're refining the rules around Flags in order to make the Level system more fair for all Contributors. Please check out this special Performance Level blog post
for more information.
New Performance Level Badge Requirements
Next week the CrowdFlower Team will be releasing some refinements to the Performance Level Badge Requirements. The changes you will see are not massive in scale, but they will help make the Leveling system more fair for all Contributors.
Most of the upcoming changes relate to Flags as we know this has been one of the more frustrating aspects of the Leveling system (especially for longterm Contributors). We recognize that the criteria for Minor and Major Flags might have been too strict as it allowed one TaskAuthor the ability to easily strip you of all your Levels. We’ve heard your comments and concerns and wanted to let you to know that we’re listening.
With the new Performance Level Badge Requirements we are being more lenient with Major & Minor Flags for Levels 1 & 2. We are also introducing a new “Admin Flag”. This new Flag indicates that a TaskAuthor has requested that a CF Admin review your work. Receiving this Flag will temporarily remove your Levels until an Admin reviews your work on that Job.
Below is an outline of the changes you should expect:
- Minor Flags
Minor Flags will be more lenient for Contributors in Level 2. Contributors in Level 2 will now be allowed to have one Minor Flag. Previously Contributors in Level 2 could not have a single Minor Flag on their account.
- Major Flags
There will be much more leniency with Major Flags. Previously a single Major Flag would result in your losing all of your Level Badges. With the new requirements Contributors in Level 1 can have 2 Major Flags and Contributors in Level 2 can have 1 Major Flag on their account.
- Admin Flag
We are introducing a 3rd type of Flag called “Admin Flag”. An “Admin Flag” indicates that the TaskAuthor has requested that a CrowdFlower Admin review your work on their Job before you continue working on other Level Jobs. All of your badges will temporarily disappear until your work has been reviewed by an Admin. To have your work reviewed by an Admin, please follow the same process as disputing a Minor or Major Flag.
It is important to know that the CrowdFlower Team will continue to iterate and refine the Performance Level Requirements to make sure we create a system that appropriately rewards and incentivizes our best Contributors. We appreciate your patience while we do!
