Librarians are some of the most helpful people in the world. Every day, their duties lead them to keep helping patrons learn, find, and do what they need. The new Lounge is built to highlight and showcase your contributions to other librarians. You might notice that your profile has a space for points:

What are points, exactly? Points accumulate as you do things in the Lounge. 

What earns you points? Lots of things! 

  • Making and commenting on posts 
  • Having other users react to your posts 
  • Earning badges 

As you earn points, your level will increase, and the number of stars on your profile will increase. Here are the levels and the point totals to reach them: 

  1. Springy Initiate: Everyone starts here! 
  2. Springy Novice: 50 points 
  3. Springy Scholar: 75 points 
  4. Springy Expert: 100 points 
  5. Springy Hero: 150 points
  6. Springy Pro: 250 points
  7. Springy Champ: 1250 points

How do you see what level someone is? The quickest way is to click on someone's name:

Carrie's got two stars, so she's a Springy Novice level in this picture.

What happens at each level? Getting higher levels unlocks some extra lounge features, and the highest levels also opens access to some extra discussion categories as well. Things that come at each level: 

  1. Springy Initiate - 0 points: Start discussions, comment on discussions. Everyone starts here! 
  2. Springy Novice - 50 points: Edit your own posts for up to a day for convenience.  
  3. Springy Scholar - 75 points: You can create Poll posts to get a vote on a topic from other Lounge members. 
  4. Springy Expert - 100 points: Unlock access to Springy Labs. In Springy Labs, you'll get to see sneak peeks of things we’re working on plus get the chance to offer feedback on new designs in development. 
  5. Springy Hero - 150 points: Receive the ability to add a signature to your posts. 
  6. Springy Pro - 250 points: Get the ability to use the “Promote” reaction on a post or comment.  
  7. Springy Champ - 1250 points: We are in awe of your contributions and helpful deeds in this community! We’ll also send you a thank you card that's hand-signed by one of the Springy crew to show our appreciation. 

We truly appreciate what you can all give to our user community, and we want to try to make this the best, most helpful place it can be for you all!
