Hello everyone,
To give credit to engaged members and experts on the Fing Community, we’ve included a system of Ranks and Badges. Here’s how to earn points, badges and ranks on the community. As we evolve we’ll be adding more ranks and badges to achieve for community experts! Stay tuned. Also, I welcome any suggestions/improvements in the discussion below.


PROMOTED CONTENT - NEW BONUS: Promoted content will get an extra 10 points! Admins will be promoting GREAT Questions and Discussions on the Devices/Security and Network Troubleshooting/Connectivity categories.
This is because we need more content in these categories - questions and discussions - to help the community grow.
Fing community ranks
Ranks
Ranks are special classifications of users based on points and statuses accumulated on the Community. When you get the required amount of points from badges and reactions you’ll move up through the levels.
  • Level 1: 0 points
  • Level 2: 50 points
  • Level 3: 100 points
  • Level 4: 500 points
  • Level 5: 1000 points
  • Level 6: 2000 points
  • Level 7: 4000 points
  • Level 8: 8000 points

Fing Community badges
Badges
Here are the badges that you can earn on the community. You can earn them by taking actions (i.e. uploading a profile picture), receiving positive reactions to your posts and answers, commenting on posts and answering questions.
  • Photogenic: 10 points - given after uploading a profile photo
  • Name Dropper: 5 points - given when you use @username to bring another user into your post. This encourages dialogue on the community.
  • Founder: 50 points - given to Fing community Founders who completed helpful tasks to get the community launched
  • Member of the Month: 50 points - given to a new member each month who has accumulated the most points through posts, discussions, answers and comments.


Agrees/Awesomes/Likes
You’ll earn badges for receiving certain numbers of “Agrees”, “Awesomes” or “Likes” on your posts, comments or answers. You’ll also get bonus points.
  • 5 Agrees/Awesomes or Likes: 5 points
  • 25 Agrees/Awesomes or Likes: 5 points
  • 100 Agrees/Awesomes or Likes: 10 points
  • 250 Agrees/Awesomes or Likes: 25 points
  • 500 Agrees/Awesomes or Likes: 50 points

  • 5000 Agrees/Awesomes or Likes: 100 points
  • 10000 Agrees/Awesomes or Likes: 100 points

  • 25 answers: 5 points
  • 50 answers: 10 points
  • 100 answers: 15 points
  • 250 answers: 20 points
  • And each level reached afterwards is awarded +20 points


Reactions
You can react to posts to give a user points. Here are the reactions that you can use and the points that they give users.
  • Like: 1 point - general approval of a post, answer or comment
  • Agree: 1 point - you share the same viewpoint as the poster
  • Promote: 5 points - promoted posts are awarded 5 points - only admins can promote posts for now
  • Awesome: 1 point - amazed with a post

    How long does it take for the Founder's badge to show up? I think I completed all three tasks, but I will admit a pot of honey did catch my eye as I went on and I may have been distracted in the process...

    Hello @Pooh bear and nice to meet you finally!!! I've actually just processed yours. Exceptionally because of the criteria, I've got to process these myself by acting as an automation tool and so I try to be as speedy as possible!

    Hi all, as so many of you are moving up through the levels and badges so quickly, I've updated the above post to reflect higher levels/badges that can be reached. I've also added in more details about promoted content and how points are given for that too. Let me know any feedback in the comments!

    How do I upload a profile pic?
  • VioletChepilVioletChepil London, UKMember Posts: 2,474 admin
    Thanks @Notta_Donkey
    You can try this option here, but I see you've already got your badge for changing picture.

    Is it possible to opt out of the badges & levels?  Or at least turning off the related emails.  Not against others enjoying it, but it's not my cup o tea, and I get enough emails on a daily basis.

    @fuzzyhans there isn't any way to opt out! But you can review your notification preferences over here:
