Transcribathon is a competitive marathon. You do not enrich documents alone, but compete and work with other volunteers to ensure the quality of your work.
When you first create a Transcribathon account, you only have the ability to start and edit tasks. The more you enrich documents, the closer you become to advancing to a higher level, which can unlock abilities like reviewing and completing tasks.
|Trainee||Basic abilities: start and edit tasks|
|Runner||Basic abilities, mark finished tasks for review|
|Sprinter||All Runner abilities, mark reviewed annotations as completed|
|Champion||All Sprinter abilities, mark reviewed transcriptions as completed|
You receive points automatically when you contribute to a task (see: Enrich). These points are called Miles, signifying the distance you have run since starting the race. In competitive Runs and on our overall Top Transcribers list, your number of Miles are ranked with those of others.
