The game is afoot! (a.k.a. what are points?)


“Come, Watson, come! The game is afoot.”

-Sherlock Holmes

Some of you may have noticed a new element in your profile over the past week and let me just say this – the game is on! We’ve added some great game features like points and levels to designer profiles to make being a 99designer better than ever.

You can earn points for all sorts of different things and discovering how is just part of the fun!

Don’t worry my dear Watson – It’s elementary 😉

Simply participate as you normally would by browsing contests, watching contests, submitting designs and interacting with the community and you’ll start racking up the points and leveling up in no time flat!

As you climb further up the levels you’ll increase your reputation in the community and perhaps even unlock some cool surprises too!

Have fun and please be sure to let us know what you think.
