devRant's gamification really does work! I find myself coming back at least twice a day :O

How often do you check in here?

    @Charon92 The upvotes, points, notifications, avatars all play into a basic level of gamification

    Anything that makes me wait more that 1.5s => dR

    @ScriptCoded undefined variable "dR"

    @Charon92 Avatar perks unlock at certain levels, kinda. Also, the ++ badge, I forgot about that one.

    Imho gamification has dozens of methods and rarely is achieved the same way or to the same extent. There are some widely-used aspects missing here like death, enemies, goals or as you mentioned a clearly defined level system, but there's some play to it. I'm not saying it's a game per se, but gamification methods are applied to it
