You will notice that every BrewChief member has a status. This simply denotes what level of access that any given member has. There are currently three different levels, detailed below:
Admin: Super users with control over website content.
Chief: These members enjoy certain community perks, like higher visibility, rank sorting, and the ability to post Chief Chats. Their reviews and postings are also featured on BrewChief's social networks. Chief status is reserved for members who have proven themselves as quality review writers.
Member: This is the standard membership that everyone starts off with. All members can post reviews and set ratings.
Achieving Chief Status is pretty straight forward. Just write good beer reviews. Once you have built a decent portfolio, simply message one of our Admins requesting Chief Status. We will review what you have written and determine whether or not to elevate your status.
Don't worry, this isn't some elitist judgment or anything. BrewChief prides itself on quality content, so if your reviews lack a certain level of depth or grammatical acumen, then we will happily respond with some constructive suggestions.
With all the great brews out there, BrewChief.com is an info-heavy website. So in order to keep things as de-cluttered as possible, we use icons in lieu of common links. Below is a list of all the icons we use and what they represent.
|View Beer Review(s)||View Picture|
|Edit Item||Delete Item|
|Item has been Locked||Content Rating|
Whenever you see a "stats" column on a list of reviews, it simply denotes the current amount of review ratings as set by other members. Stats are displayed utilizing the following format:
Love - Like - Respect - Dislike - Hate
As an example, a stat of 11-14-5-2-0 means:
|11||Members Love the Review|
|14||Members Like the Review|
|5||Members Respect the Review|
|2||Members Dislike the Review|
|0||Members Hate the Review|
Rating content on BrewChief is really easy. Simply click the mug icon that you feel best represents your overall opinion. That's it. You can change it at any time by clicking on a different mug.
