Holly's Helpful Hints: How To Be At The Top Of Your Game

Last week I shared with you how actions you take in the community can earn you points. This week I'd like to talk about what those points mean.

Have you noticed the "My Community Activity Level and Points" section of the MyCommunity page? It looks something like this:

The badge (a cute little owl in my case) indicates your authority level in the community and is determined by the number of points you have. There are five authority levels in the community. They are:

You can find all these badges, along with explanations of all the other badges in the community, in our community badge glossary.

You can also find out what authority level your connections have by visiting their profiles. Their community level badge appears right next to their profile picture:

Stay tuned for next week, when we introduce our community leader board and talk about why you might want to "level-up" in the Community!

As always, thanks for reading. If you have any questions or ideas for future helpful hints, share them in the comments below.

Thanks for the explanation of the badges.  As a Community Novice, I am not seeing a purpose to the points other than tracking how much a member participates.

Hi Katie, I'm going to keep posting on this for a couple more weeks and hopefully will be able to share more on how we use points in community. :)
