    3) Points, Badges & Ranks
    Points, ranks and badges is the reward system for BlenderManiacs within the community! You can see a list of ranks and badges and their requirements as well as the points that you get for different activities HERE

    Points – You accumulate points for pretty much any and all interaction that you create within the community! Different activities give different amount of points. The more points you have, the higher rank you get and the more you are recognized in the community. Your ranks, points and badges are visible for all to see within the community. The higher more you contribute or interact, the more points you’ll get which means a higher rank which could lead to different perks and benefits. Points can also be used to buy lottery tickets in the lottery system or to, in the future, use to buy things like courses or anything else in the shop!

    Ranks – Ranks are the level you have reached that represent your current point amount. For a full list of ranks and their point requirement, check the link above. Ranks range from Bronze level 1 to Gold level 5. There are ranks which are not yet visible or earned which are the “Blender Elite” ranks.

    Badges – Badges are earned when you complete or achieve a certain thing as described by the page in the link above. Badges can be given for winning a contest, biggest contributor to site, etc. These badges will be proudly displayed on your page so that other Blendermaniacs can see that you aren’t messing around!

    4) Contests
    Contests are held often (Usually once a month) and they are a way to challenge you and use all your skills, talent and Blender knowledge into a single project that everyone will see. Not only will you get the satisfaction of creating an awesome piece of work that you put a lot of time and effort in but you will have the chance to earn a 1st, 2nd or 3rd place price along with getting your image featured on the front page of the Blendermania site and earning a badge!

    To enter into the current contest, simply check if there is one currently happening by clicking the following link and reading the details! CLICK HERE

    5) Tutorials
    Tutorials are pretty self explanatory! The tutorials on BlenderMania are listed a bit everywhere but of course the main way to access them is via the “Tutorials” tab on the main menu. The tutorials here are a lot driven by you so make sure to leave comments, interact, post your work that you create from them and also request a tutorial via the “Request A Tutorial” tab found HERE

    6) Featured Image
    Featured Images are images that are selected by Admins to be featured on the homepage and in the “Featured” gallery of the website. To see the current featured image just go to the following link HERE and you can submit your own by following the link on that page. Featured images are a way to get a chance at getting your best artwork featured and get your name exposed to thousands of others!
