Ranking Overview

What

The short phrase that appears with your username in your posts is your rank.

 

Why

Ranks are used to indicate the number, quality, and impact of your posts. As you spend more time in the community participating, your ranking level will progress.

 

How

The Community has a distinct set of ranking ladders which match your natural behavioral tendencies to either collect, contribute, or advise within the threads. 

 

A community member starts as a “New Member” and depending on how often you visit and what you contribute will move through the following rankings.

 

New Member

Occasional Visitor

Visitor

Frequent Visitor

Regular Visitor

Member

Established Member

Senior Member

 

Through your contributions to the community, you will move on to one of the following ladders:

 

Occasional Collector

Occasional Contributor

Occasional Advisor

Collector

Contributor

Advisor

Frequent Collector

Frequent Contributor

Frequent Advisor

Regular Collector

Regular Contributor

Regular Advisor

Super Collector

Super Contributor

After navigating these steps, you will progress to the “Super User” ladder:

Exalted Contributor

Re: Ranking Overview

Great thanks for that.. I wouldnt mind knowing excatly how/when the ranking works..Like some sort of progress meter or something.

What you asked has been asked before :-) with no definitive disclosure.  See my observations (and conclusion) here:

At seems that the raw number of posts made determines your ranking label.

Welcome.  There is a HELP link at the top right of the page with sub-links to "Getting Started", "Posting Messages", "Accepted Solutions" and "Kudos".

Re: Ranking Overview

Great, now I have a ribbon I do not want and my Name is in shiny purple - I should start uploading videos from a vt100 terminal how to type the commands instead of answering questions.

The obvious way, they are HP employees.  :-)

Re: Ranking Overview

So being an "Occasional Collector" means? Are these designations a method of encouraging more participation in the forums?

One step above "Senior Member", on the Collector ladder.

You seem to have a lot of blog comments.

 

>Are these designations a method of encouraging more participation in the forums?

 

Exactly.

Re: Ranking Overview

The purpose of our ranking system is to reflect both the level of participation, and its value to the Community at large. Not only will a higher rank encourage increased engagement, but it also reflects a growing reputation. 

 

The terms like "Visitor", "Collector", "Advisor", "Contributor" reflect advancing levels of participation. It is not just how often you visit the Community, how many posts you have, but the impact those posts have on your peers' success. 

 

All of these elements go into the ranking system.

 

I hope this is helpful,
