Hi all,

As we work to continue to improve the Evernote Discussion Forums, I wanted to provide an update and context to how user's membership levels are handled.

See the following information below regarding member levels, and how users are promoted to the next level.



Member Level Criteria:
Our community’s member levels are determined by commenting activity—when you reach a certain level, you are automatically placed into a new group with a new member title. In the future, member titles will also have badges associated with them.
  1. Guest - New User/Not logged in
  2. Member - 0-9 posts; Must have first post approved by Admin
  3. Member + - 10-99 posts
  4. Noteworthy -100+ posts
  5. Guru - 300+ posts; 50+ Reputation Points; Admin Approval
  6. Super Guru - 500+;  75+ Reputation Points; Admin Approval 
Member Level Access/Perks:
  1. Guest (New User/0 Posts) - User is not signed in, and may only be browsing. They cannot create or reply to posts, cannot report content, and they will only have ‘view’ access. Once user signs in with their account and posts, they will be automatically upgraded to ‘Member’ status.
  2. Member (0-9 posts)- Once a user signs in, their first attempted post must be verified by an Admin.  Once their first post is approved, they will be able to post content that will be immediately viewable to the forum community. Additionally, ‘Member' cannot start more than 5 conversation in a day, cannot message more than 5 recipients at one time, and are limited to 10 reactions per day.  After successfully posting more than 9 posts, they will be automatically upgraded to 'Member +' status.
  3. Member + (10-99 posts) - Have all permissions available to 'Member'. Additionally, they do not have conversation or messaging  limitations, can use signatures for their posts, and have an unlimited number of reactions per day. After posting more than 50 posts successfully, they will be automatically upgraded to ‘Noteworthy’ status.
  4. Noteworthy (100+ posts) -  Have all permissions available to 'Member +’. Additionally, Noteworthy users can create polls.
  5. Guru - (300+ posts; 50+ Reputation Points; Admin Approval- Have all permissions available to ‘Noteworthy’. Additionally, Guru’s have limited moderator power that enable them tohide/move topics and ideas.
  6. Super Guru (500+ posts; 75+ Reputation Points; Admin Approval)- Have all permissions and moderator powers available to ‘Guru’. They also have the additional moderator power of being able to flag spammers. Super Guru will have access to the ‘Super Guru Club’. The club receives first access to upcoming changes/plans from Evernote, acts as a sounding board for user feedback, and receives specially dedicated attention from Evernote’s staff.
Reporting and Moderation:
Our Gurus  (300+ posts; 50+ Reputation Points; Admin Approval) will be allowed to help organize and tend the community’s grounds. When members reach this level they gain the ability to hide spam content as well as the ability to move content around in the forums. The “remove spam” ability should only be used to remove spam content, and the “move” ability should only be used to move content to its correct forum or sub forum.
Our Super Gurus (500+ posts; 75+ Reputation Points; Admin Approval) have the additional power to flag an individual user as a spammer. This will immediately suspend the spammer’s account in the forum, and prevent from posting in the future.
Any member, no matter the level, can use the reporting tool to notify an Evernote employee to review particular content in the forums.
There is no requirement or expectation that these members perform these functions, however, their status allows them to do so if they wish.



*Update: Due to a technical limitation, these rules will not retroactively affect your account to upgrade your member level. If your member level is not accurate and needs to be adjusted, please reach out to Shane D. directly. Thank you!*
