We hope that Community members will make active use of the Community. For that reason, achievement badges are awarded for engaging in the following ways:
- Asking questions.
- Answering a question that is marked as accepted.
- Posting questions that generate a high volume of replies.
- Making friends with other users.
You will receive a notification when you earn an Achievement. To adjust this setting, click on your profile avatar, and then choose Settings. Find the setting for Achievements on the Notifications tab.
You can view your Achievements on your profile. Click on your profile avatar, and then choose Profile. Once on your profile, scroll down to see your Achievement badges.
Community activity of any kind—liking, commenting, rating, asking, responding, etc.—earns the member points. Those points are used to generate the Community Leaderboards which comprise the top 25 most active community members. Leaderboards are calculated using the most recent 30 days of data, and are updated with new data every day.
