That means you’ll get 10 Local Guides points for each review you write, so you’ll reach new levels even faster. You’ll get double points for all your past reviews, too, so this update might have already brought you to a new level!
If you love writing reviews that are packed with helpful info to help people decide where to go, you might be wondering: what about bonus points for detailed reviews? Those are doubling, too. When you write a review over 200 characters, you’ll earn 10 points for the review, plus 10 bonus points for a total of 20.
We’re rolling out this feature over a few weeks. If it seems like it hasn’t taken effect for you quite yet, don’t worry -- it will soon.
We hope you’re excited about this news! Let us know what you think about double points for reviews.
