User Contribution Level Explanation

RestaurantThing.com calculates our User Contribution Levels in order to assist our users in evaluating the credibility of our reviews. If a reviewer has a very high User Contribution Level, then their review is more likely to be of value in making an informed restaurant selection.

Our registered users can improve their Contribution Level in a variety of ways, including every time they:

  • Write a new Restaurant Review
  • Create a new Restaurant Visit Review
  • Submit a new Comment on a Restaurant Review
  • Add a new restaurant
  • Report invalid data
  • And more...

The table below details the different levels and the points required to obtain them.
