The gamerscore is an indication of how long a player has played iHEARu-PLAY and how well he or she has been doing overall. New players start with a score of zero. For each submitted annotation and recorded prompt, players get awarded a certain number of points.
For the annotation mode, the number of points depends on how well the submitted answer agrees to the answers of other players. Choosing an answer that fits well to the answers of other players will give more points than an uncommon answer.
In recording mode, the number of points a player will get for uploading a recording depends on the effort required to record the prompt, i.e. a recording task that takes longer to record will give more points than a short task. For any additional recordings uploaded for a prompt, players will only get a reduced number of additional points.
Any points awarded are multiplied by the player's current score multiplier before being added to the player's gamerscore. In addition to gaining points from completing annotation or recording tasks, players with the rank Expert gain bonus points for any other Expert player that agrees with their answer on the same question if they are the first to propose a new unique answer.
Points may also be awarded through the discovery of bonus items that are occasionally hidden behind questions.
Daily Bonus: It's created every single day and lasts for the first 25 questions you play on that day.
New Member: Whenever you register with your account for the first time you get the bonus item, which lasts for your first 25 questions. It's attainable only once.
Hard Worker: It's for the players who are eager to annotate more than others. It is valid for 50 questions on that day you got the bonus item. This is a terrific opportunity to increase your rank in the leaderboard.
Skipping Questions: If you are lucky, you will find this Bonus Item, which enables you to skip a question you don't like answer. Whenver you skip the question you gain also points to increase your score. In Addition to that, your progress on the database will increase as if you answered the question. It's valid only on the day of winning it.
