If you have a published movie (whether current or obsolete), you will get a Player rank. Which Player rank you get depends on your currently published movies and their rating.

*The formula for a player's score*

Each player will get a score Z, which is determined by summing player point contributions from individual movies (Z_movie):

- Rating of movie (r) is calculated as weighted average of ratings (authors' own ratings are ignored here).
- Z_movie=O*max(M*r^max(2.6-0.2*average_ratings/ratings,1)/sqrt(p), 5), where p is number of players, M=1.5 for stars, M=1 for standard and alternative. O=1 if movie is current, 10^-6 otherwise. Tech/entertainment ratings count as 1 rating here. Author ratings are included in count.

### Player ranks

Your value for Z determines your Player rank:

Player rank | Z |
---|---|

Former player | Z<1 |

Player | 1≤Z<250 |

Active player | 250≤Z<500 |

Experienced player | 500≤Z<1000 |

Skilled player | 1000≤Z<2000 |

Expert player | Z≥2000 |

Note that your score for obsoleted movies is multiplied by a very small number. This way, they don't count towards your score, but they do keep your score non-zero, which means that people who had all of their movies obsoleted will get the Former player rank.

Your score is displayed after your player rank (for example, if you see "Player (146)", your score is 146) and in your forum profile.
