Listener Reputation

7 Cups of Tea is a caring community. Listeners can earn Cheers, Badges and Compassion Hearts to help quantify their commitment to the community. As you get more cheers, you level up! The listener levels show how experienced a listener is. Different leadership roles on our platform require the listener to reach a certain level. Leveling up provides more opportunities for you to serve the community. Additionally as you take more chats, spend time in member and listener group rooms or create/respond to forum posts, you get badges! You can also apply for leadership roles and get a relevant badge.

Cheers

Cheers provide a measure of a Listener’s time and commitment to 7 Cups of Tea. This number is used to calculate the Listener’s level. Listeners earn cheers when:
