Your level on iCCup is based on your status in the community.
How does the level system work though? How can you use your level to your advantage?
The answer to these questions are listed further down.
1.1 The Level
Your level decides the Energy limit you have and how many spells you can use. You start at level 1 with 0 energy. What this means, is that you will not be able to see or use any spells at this level. To level up you will need to collect Experience. Experience can be gained by being active on the site, by doing things like writing a blog entry. You will be able to see how much Experience you have and how much more you need to level up to the next level. The green bar will help you keep track of your current Experience and how much you need for the next level. If you keep your mouse over the green bar, your Experience will appear like something like: 322/340. This means that you have 322 Experience and you need a total of 340 to reach level 9. Example of how it looks is on the left.
1.2 The Energy
You will be able to use spells based on how much Energy you have. In the example above, the user has a limit of 140 Energy. However, he has 60 Energy remaining. This means he has already used 80 points of Energy in the last 24 hours. The Energy bar will be refreshed after 24 hours.
1.3 The Spells
Every where you see a Magic hat icon, you can use a spell.
If you click on the icon, a drop down menu will appear. This menu will tell you what kind of spells you can use and how much energy it will cost you. In the example image above, you can see that the spell «Spell-Name» was chosen and that it costs 80 energy. This would explain why our user only has 60 energy remaining. With these spells you will be able to do some pretty cool things like highlighting your own comment or even someone else's comment.
