    What are Credibility Points (CR), Submission Points (SP), and the Player Skill Index (PSI)?


    There are 3 important numbers that are associated with a VERIFIED Twin Galaxies User Account:

    Submission Points (SP)
    Credibility Rating (CR)
    Player Skill Index (PSI)

    Submission Points (SP):

    This number represents the "money" of Twin Galaxies.

    The spending of earned Submission Points are the primary means that allow a user to submit score performances and acquire or make use of other valuable Twin Galaxies functions or offerings.

    Submission Points can be earned by participating in Twin Galaxies Submission and Adjudication Process (TGSAP) or other Twin Galaxies' specified activities within the site and community.

    Generally speaking, the more a user engages, participates and contributes to the Twin Galaxies community, the more avenues to earn SP become available over time.


    Credibility Rating (CR):
    This number represents how much power a user's vote carries within the Twin Galaxies adjudication system.

    The Twin Galaxies adjudication system is driven by a very controlled peer-review voting process. This means that every participating member is given the ability to vote on score performances and the total outcome of the voting process yields a final result.

    As a user's voting track record evolves over time, his/her CR will reflect the total level of expertise that they have displayed and accumulated. The higher the CR, the greater the voting power is.

    This means that all votes are not equal in the system and the users who invest more of their time in the adjudicating process will generally have more impact on adjudicating outcomes than users who participate less.

    As a user builds up their CR rating, they are building a legitimate and documented track record of their expertise in video game performance review that can be referenced by media and industry!

    Player Skill Index (PSI):

    The Player Skill Index Rating is a summary index that represents the total verified and demonstrated video game skill of the user.

    Every individual ranking that a TG member has on the scoreboard produces a calculated point value. The cumulative point values for every rank position held is then calculated together to produce that member's PSI.

    There are several factors that go into the calculation of the point value of a ranking:

    The track rating (1 - 5 Stars) - Every leaderboard on Twin Galaxies has a rating that reflects how the competitive community values it. The higher the rating the more intrinsically valuable holding rank on the track is.

    The number of scores in the database for the track - A track with only 5 list scores is not as competitive as a track with 100 scores, therefore holding rank #1 on a track with 5 scores is less valuable than holding rank #1 on a track with 100 scores. This factors in the historic competitive level of a track and places higher value on achievement within a higher competitive landscape.

    The rank position held by the member on the track itself - The higher the rank held, the greater the value to the PSI calculation.

    Here is the actual calculation:

    TRACK PSI YIELD = (star rating * number of data records on track) / rank held


    Any track that has not been rated gets a star rating on ONE (1) by default.

    So, the Twin Galaxies database system will look at all of a members rankings on each and every track, consider the track rating and competitive level of each individual track and then produce a cumulative PSI score for that member.

    So, a member PSI = SUM(ALL TRACK PSI YIELDS)

    This PSI score idea is a powerful, logical, holistic statistical measurement system that can analyze achievement across all video games, platforms and categories. This is an important gateway to conversation with non-gamer audiences and will begin to allow many more people to appreciate and understand the great talent being expressed by video game players worldwide.

    Members will see PSI as part of their player profile.

    Users can compare this number to other members to see literally how they rank against each other according to the sum total of their achievements within Twin Galaxies. Now, players can compete on a level that does not require them to play the same games if they don't want to.
