IV. My points and missions
Missions allow you to earn points and unlock status and/or badges. A mission is an action to do within the community, such as posting a review, sharing a photo, creating a routine, answering a survey… Some missions are unique (only achievable once), others are recurring (doable several times). Some are automatic (you receive points as soon as the action is completed), others are manual (they require a screenshot or the validation of your content by our administrators). Some missions can also be temporary (only doable over a defined period).
On your profile, in the «Missions» tab, you will find the unique missions to complete once, your permanent missions, doable as many times as you want, and the missions of the month. You will also find your completed missions at the end of the list.
To accomplish a mission, you must do the action mentioned in the mission description. In your missions list, click on the mission you want to complete to check its full description. Most missions are automatic, this means that your points will be automatically added to your profile once the action is done. However, some of these missions require administrator moderation. This involves either adding a screenshot of your action in the mission description or receiving the manual validation of your publication by an administrator.
To validate a mission that requires a screenshot, you must take a screenshot of the action completed and add this screenshot in the mission description. To do so, click on the camera available there and select the corresponding screenshot. As soon as your proof is validated by our admin, you will receive a notification on the community and get your points. The validation of your screenshot can take between 1 and 3 days.
Screenshots validation can take between 1 and 3 days. Don’t worry, an administrator will soon validate your proof if it meets the conditions of the mission. If you don’t receive your points, it means your screenshot has been declined and you’ll be able to add a new screenshot.
The only way to earn points is to complete missions. Go to your profile, tab «Missions» to discover the missions that await you!
Points are used to grow in the community and earn status, which gives you access to rewards and exclusive privileges in the Community.
If you did not receive your points for a screenshot mission, it means that our administrators did not validate your proof, probably because it did not meet the conditions of the mission. In that case, you can add another screenshot. Be careful, read the mission description before adding your new screenshot and make sure it fits the description. If you do not receive your points for an automatic mission, you can contact our administrators to learn more.
V. My badges and status
A badge acts like an honorific reward for an action done one or several times the community. It is a way of rewarding your efforts within the Community. They motivate you to progress and can be granted for a variety of reasons: complete your profile, leave product reviews, receive reactions to your posts, share various publications, be elected member of the month...
Your status represents your level within the Community. There are 4 statuses on the Community. To unlock them, you must complete the different conditions mentioned in the description of each status. To view the conditions of a status, head to your profile page, in the «progress» tab, then click on any status to reveal its description. Statuses allow you to unlock rewards and exclusive benefits within the Community.
Unlock new statuses by being active on the Community, sharing quality content regularly, completing missions and earning points.
