What is "Aura" on Cardmates?

Aura is a dynamic measure of a person’s activity on our website. Here’s how it works: each user gets assigned a particular status based on how active they are on the site and their reputation within the community. We measure the Aura in points, which users can earn through activities like writing blogs or leaving comments, as well as receiving ratings from other users. You can see how you are doing with your Aura in your personal profile – that’s where the progress bar is displayed.

Registered users can directly affect someone's Aura by evaluating their profile, posts or commentaries. Other community members, in turn, are eligible to rate your actions, thereby either raising or lowering your status.

Your Aura gets updated automatically every 5 minutes.

Statuses. Aura distribution and weight on Cardmates

Each registered Cardmates user has a status that reflects his activity and reputation on the site. There are 10 statuses in total: 6 dynamic and 4 static. Immediately after registration, the user has no status.

To reach a certain rank, you need to earn points in aura. The higher the status, the more privileges the user gets. It's easy to get the first 100 points: +50 points for registration and another +50 for filling out a profile. But becoming a "Legend" is challenging – for this you need to be regularly active on the site, creating high-quality and interesting content (blogs or forum).

Users with at least 200 points have their own privileges. These can be an access to private freerolls, merch from top brands and other stuff.

User ratings

For a fair distribution of points, each user can set and receive ratings only within the limits of -1 ... +1. Only registered users can rate.

How to Earn Points for Your Aura

One can accumulate Aura points by being active on the site and creating content for Cardmates readers on their blog/forum. Virtually all user's actions are rewarded with points to increase their status. So, your actions get you points, but the number of points scored depends on what you're up to.

Type of User Activity Coefficient Example
Completing your profile x50 Just indicate your name, last name, gender, birth date, and country, add an avatar, and tell us briefly (or not) about yourself. Boom, you get +50 points for that.
Rating of your blog post (one per day) x2 Ten users liked your post and gave it "+1," while two clicked "-1." You'll receive +16 points.
Rating of a forum thread you've initiated (one per day) x2 Fifteen users liked the thread, while four decided to be party poopers and hit it with "-1". You'll get +22 points in this case.
Feedback on a poker room, casino, book, or film (maximum three per day) x2 Each review you write will earn you +2 points. If you've dropped 4 detailed and honest feedbacks, that's +8 points.
Someone started following you x1 Each new follower earns you 1 point. So, with 15 new followers, you’re up by +15 points.
Feedback from other users x1 Thirty people are in your fan club and left positive ratings. But 10 folks got a little jealous and gave you a thumbs down. Your total score will be +20 points.
Rating of your comments on the site’s articles or forum threads x0.2 Seven users hit your comment with "+1," and two clicked "-1." That's a modest +1 point boost to your Aura.

Reasons for User's Account Blocking

Here at Cardmates, we value and respect everyone's opinions, keeping things friendly. But if someone starts acting rude towards other users or the administration, publishes non-unique (stolen) content, and posts stuff they shouldn't (like spam or ads), we find it necessary to implement account suspensions.

The sanctions come with the following consequences:

Blocked
Blocked
  • A 1-day timeout means you'll lose 100 Aura points 😥
  • A 1-week timeout is a bit tougher and will cost you 500 points 😑
