User Ranks FAQs

What are user ranks?

User ranks are a fun gamification element that reward quality and quantity of community participation. Every member of the community is assigned a rank based on their contributions.


Is there a list of the user ranks?

Here you go!


  • New here
  • Just browsing
  • Comes here often
  • Conversationalist
  • Here to help
  • Getting noticed
  • Building a reputation
  • A model citizen
  • Head in the Cloud
  • Kind of a big deal

(and we’ll add more as time goes on!)

These are sort of strange ranks.

We decided to have a little fun with the rank names. Who wants to be a “Frequent Contributor” when you can be “Head in the Cloud” or “Kind of a big deal”?


How do I earn a new rank?

User ranks are awarded based on the quantity and quality of participation in the community.


What are the criteria for each rank?

It wouldn't be nearly as fun if we told you!


Where does my rank display?

Your rank will display on your profile page and on each post you make.
