Welcome to our new community rank scheme! As the Community has grown, we wanted to find a new and better way to show how your participation helps others. So say hello to our new ranks.
In the past you may have seen something like ‘New to This’ or ‘Occasional Poster’ next to your username. We call this your rank name. As you visit the Community more often, and do more to help others with solutions, we increase your rank and award you a higher status. We do this to give kudos to our most helpful contributors, and to help show their level of knowledge and experience to newer members.
Over the next few days you may see that your rank name has changed. If not, go and take a look at your profile.
You’ll see our Community team appear differently to other users. They have ‘Your Community Expert’ next to their username instead of a rank. Say hello next time you see them online.
We hope you like this change. It’s for fun, but we also want it to reward those of you who’ve worked with us to make the Community what it is today. Keep helping each other out and let’s see how we can take things to the next level (or rank!).
What do you think? Leave us a comment. We’d love to hear your thoughts.
