FAQ: How do I earn points and badges?
Earning Points and Badges
Points and badges are earned through your collaborative participation within the online Community.
You can earn points and badges, for example, when you provide an answer to a question, when someone else accepts your answer as the right solution, when you tag others in posts, or when you upvote an answer. You also receive points when users mark your discussions and posts as Insightful, so make them great!
NOTE: Simply asking a question does not give you points. Your post will need to have others react positively to it (such as with an Insightful or Upvote reaction) to receive points.
The more reactions your post receives, the more likely it is to end up on the Best Of page as well!
Request a Badge
If you notice that another Community member has a badge you believe you should be awarded as well, you can request one by following these steps:
- Make sure you're logged in to the Community.
- Click on the badge that appears within the other Community member's profile.
- On the badge page, click the Request This Badge button (in the upper-right portion of the page as shown in the image below).
- In the window that appears, type a note to our team and click Send Request.
