What is the member or file quality level ?
Different scales (measurements)
Depending on the G1 tools or software you are using, the quality level is labelled either as a number between 0 and 1,25 or as a percentage between 0 and 100 (where 80% = 1 and 100% = 1,25).
File Quality Level
The file level of a newcomer is calculated using the number of referent G1 members that are located within less than 5 steps of this newcomer.
To become a G1 currency co-creator, you must have a file quality above 1 (or above 80%). This file quality level is verified at each membership renewal (every year). Someone who doesn't reach this file level, won't be able to become a G1 currency co-creator or will loose his or her status as a member, after their membership renewal.
This can happen if one of his or her certifiers loses some important certifications.(how would this happen? people being removed from WOT? dying? etc... good to mention).... In this case, this person will then have to find other certifiers, if they want to remain as a member and G1 currency co-creator.
The member quality level of a G1 user is calculated using the number of referent members located within less than 4 steps from that person.
A G1 user who is certified by a member with a quality level of 1 (or 80%) or more will automatically have a file quality level needed. (needed for what??)
Having a certifier with a good quality level (of 1 or more) is enough to have a good file quality level that respects the distance rule, but it's not an absolute necessity. When your certifiers have a poor file quality level, you can still have a file quality level that is higher than 1, if your certifiers are from various places or various local groups of G1 users.
