The other intervening statuses -- we have something call Maze Magician, Super Maze Magician, and Mage of all Mazes -- were developed to respond to the interests and needs of kids at our site. For example, we had a lot of younger students who became YWAs, kids eight or nine years old in their first year. And they really didn't want to help other kids. They were in it to play with the computers and to play games and so we created some other statuses that would provide inducements or goal options for them to continue in that way and to continue to open learning opportunities for them.
