You will notice next to your username a Rank such as:
Ranking points are earned for visiting the Community, your length of membership, posts that author, view, reply to and give “Likes” to.
Over time you may also wish to contribute Ideas and vote on others’ ideas; you may author or contribute to a Knowledge Base article; you might write a blog that is published on the site.
All these contributions earn points towards the Rank system. How many points? Well… we know you are all very clever data people and we wouldn’t want you gaming the system now would we?
