What Proves an Individual’s Online Entertainment Skills?
To earn Online Entertainer credentials, you must exhibit key competencies associated with the pursuit. On Gigaverse, you can prove your online entertainment skills by:
- Responding to emails within 36 hours
- Describing and linking to one example of a positive interaction you have had with fans and one example of collaborative work you created with other artists or entertainers in a polite response to an email query from a potential endorser (examples of links include the URL an AMA you did on reddit or a the URL of a collaborative music video you made and shared on YouTube)
- Having shared at least ten publicly-available samples (comics, videos, podcasts, etc.) or one publicly-available game online
- Linking to at least three active social media profiles from your Gigaverse profile
Your work as an online entertainer must be accessible via your Gigaverse profile’s portfolio items or external links. Social media profiles you share must have profile photos and complete bios, be over two months old, not appear empty, and contain content that has been posted within 30 days.
Keep in mind that, to earn full Online Entertainer credentials, a Gigaverse member must also meet several other requirements, such as passing our Online Entertainment course and adhering to our standards regarding ethical conduct, copyright, sourcing, citation, and verification.
How to Endorse an Online Entertainer
Only Gigaverse members with complete, admin-approved profiles may nominate others for endorsements. To qualify, complete your Gigaverse profile, then submit it for review. This requirement is designed to make it difficult to attempt to create dummy accounts.
To vet a fellow member:
- Make sure your profile is complete and has been submitted for review (and approved by) a Gigaverse admin
- Verify that he or she meets the review-based requirements above
- Kick off the email vetting process by sending an email asking this individual to provide an example of a positive interaction he or she had with fans and a piece of collaborative work he or she created with other artists or entertainers, along with links to the examples described
- Should you receive an adequate response, select the member’s name for nomination below, copy and paste the individual’s written email response (no attachments necessary) in the text box, state that you can attest that he or she meets the requirements associated with this endorsement, and “sign” your name
Many members can be emailed directly through the "contact" button on their Gigaverse profiles. Those who do not enable others to contact them via their Gigaverse profiles and are not easy to email through other publicly-displayed profiles online cannot be vetted.
Keep in mind that your reputation is on the line when you submit nominations. Should admins reject more than three of your nominations due to inaccuracy, all future nominations may be ignored, which will prevent you from earning points toward your own credentials.
