Microsoft is launching a new Xbox Live program today known as Xbox Community Level, which will reward Xbox Live users for positive contributions to the community, the company announced today.
Xbox Community Level recognizes actions from the existing Xbox Community Ambassadors initiative, a peer-to-peer program in which users answer Xbox Live support questions, as well as from the newly announced Enforcement United program. Enforcement United, which is currently open to Ambassadors in beta, lets Xbox Live users help out with ensuring that people aren't violating the Xbox Live Code of Conduct by doing things like checking Gamertags.
Microsoft tracks participation in Xbox Community Ambassadors or Enforcement United and awards experience points based on a user's actions. As a user levels up, they'll unlock loot such as Avatar items, entries into regular sweepstakes and Xbox Live games.
"Leveling up in our program today might mean that you're a stellar Ambassador or a solid member Enforcement United beta program, or that you're a contributor to both," said Bobby Lamirande, program owner for Xbox Community Ambassadors. "In the future, leveling up might mean providing feedback that helps us improve our services, [providing] expertise in Xbox products or even creating game guides and helpful content in the Xbox.com forums."
He continued, "Ultimately, we imagine your Community Level becoming as integral to your Xbox Live identity as your Gamerscore, tenure and reputation."
More details are available on the Xbox Community Level website. You can see screenshots of the site in the gallery below.
