What is the UserRank on Wikiloc?10
The goal of Wikiloc is being a place where everyone can share and discover the best outdoor trails anywhere in the world. To make this possible, people around the world share their best trails in Wikiloc. The UserRank is a recognition of this work and an indicator of the degree of contribution of each one of us to the community. The UserRank appears next to each user in the listings and gives an idea of the degree of participation in Wikiloc.
The main way to increase your UserRank is by sharing good trails as it depends largely on the TrailRank of your trails. There are other factors that will increase your UserRank like your number of followers. Even without trails you can improve your UserRank with simple actions such as filling out your user profile with your picture or by telling something about yourself for those who visit your profile or participating with comments and ratings of the trails you download.
In a few cases the UserRank may decrease by repeated negative evaluations to any of your trails or soon if others mark your comments negatively.
The UserRank is in beta and may be adjusted in the coming weeks.
What is the TrailRank on Wikiloc?10
When you're looking for trails for your next outdoor trip using the world map, the advanced search or the Wikiloc layer in Google Earth, you want to see the best trails first. For that reason the best trails in Wikiloc appear at higher levels of zoom and high in the search listings, all other trails also appear as you approach a particular area with a lower level of zoom. In Wikiloc, trails are sorted by their TrailRank.
The TrailRank is a quality indicator value between 0 and 50 that can be increased up to 100 if the trail is highly valued by the community. The TrailRank is calculated considering a combination of aspects of each trail, for example:
Although we do not disclose the exact formula, there are parameters that the author can control (writing a detailed description, adding pictures of scenery ...) and others that it is the community that decides (ratings, favorites ...)
If you're an author, the best way to get a high TrailRank for your trails is to share interesting trails!
The TrailRank is in beta and can be adjusted in the coming months.
