The Experience Level, also known simply as Level, is generally held to be the most important stat of Newgrounds users. It is determined by the number of experience points a user has. You can increase your level by voting on five submissions per day, which gives you 10 experience points.
Experience Points/Grounds Gold Edit
These are the points that a user gains by voting on submissions. They had been known as Grounds Gold until the 2007 Redesign, when the name was changed to Experience Points, that being a term familiar to many video gamers from RPG's. The term Grounds Gold is used for the currency in Newgrounds Rumble. A user can only earn up to 10 points per day and that day, which begins at midnight Eastern Standard time(UTC - 5) and resets the count, is still known as a Grounds Gold Day.
The Experience Levels have been on the site for years. Like many things, they were adjusted in the 2007 Redesign, making more levels and raising the bar so that there was a higher ceiling. The current top level was reached by Pimp in 2010.
The level of a user represents their voting power. The amount of experience points determines their voting power, and showing a different level icon for each milestone:
