Titles and Badges

What Your Title and Badge Means

Your “Reputation” Title and Badge work in unison to visually indicate to other Members how many posts you've written in the Community Forums.

Even though the actual number of posts a Member has written is also listed at the bottom of the post information, the Title and Badges make for a fun way to reward Members who are active, not only spurring up new conversation by creating new posts, but also helping and encouraging others by replying to their posts.

How to Earn New Titles and Badges

When you become a member, you start out in “Level 0″ which comes with the Reputation Title of “New Member” and the Rating Badge of a little blue gift box. It's like, “Welcome to the Membership! Oh, and here's a little gift for you!”

As you progress through your membership, creating new Community posts and topics and reply to other member's Community posts, you have the ability to move up levels and be awarded upgraded Reputation Titles and Ratings Badges by earning points.

Liking a Community Post

Dislike of a Community Post

When you receive a “dislike” (thumbs down at bottom) from a member for one of your Community posts, you will lose ½ point.
