If you are curious to see what other members think, you can create New Poll which means ask a question an offer multiple answers. You'll basically run a survey!

Simply click on Flag below the comment you judge inappropriate, then on Report.

You will then be asked the reason for reporting and a notification will be sent to our Team to check. Note that you will not receive any answer from us regarding our decision to take action or not. 

Earning Stars and Badges 
- and becoming a King Legend!

Stars represent your rank in the Community. The more points you get, the more stars you collect, the higher you rank!

- How to get points?

Other Community members can react to your posts, with a "Insightful", a "Sweet" or a "Hehe" - The more of these your posts receive, the higher your points will be.

Additional points are also awarded if your posts are promoted by one of moderators or forum administrators. Promoted posts are listed in the Best of section of the forums.  

Another way is to answer questions posted by other members. If the person asking the question accepts your answer, you'll get points plus the sweet satisfaction to have helped someone! 

You also gain forum points by earning badges.

- What are the Badges and how to earn them?

Each badge is like a sweet reward for achieving an action. Complete all the steps to collect all the badges! 
You also gain points by earning them, which will help you climb to the top of the leader board. 

You can see the full list of Badges here

Go to your profile to see how many you've collected!

- What are the points needed for each level or how to become a King Legend?

You are awarded stars for earning forum points.

✭ You start with one star as a New Bee.

✭✭ Get two stars at 30 points and 10 posts - You are then a classmate.

✭✭✭ Get three stars at 100 points and 50 posts - You are one of our Buddies now!

✭✭✭✭ Get four stars at 250 points and 200 posts - Come here you, Bestie, and because of that, you now get the option to update your signature! Isn't that great?

✭✭✭✭✭ Get five stars at 500 points and 500 posts - A real Partner in crime. And for everyone to see you're part of the family, you get the Game Expert badge. Wow!

Reach 1000 points and make 1000 posts and become a KING LEGEND!

These stars appear on your forum profile and at the top of each of your posts.

    Thank You Very Much for this information  I was wondering what are all these badges & what do the Stars represent!!  Now I know :)

    Have a great day & have an amazing Thanksgiving celebration with your family & friends!

    ** Can you please tell me when to use a "Hehe"?  
  • MarkHawkMarkHawk Posts: 4,075 Community Manager
    Hi Pummy! Good to hear from you and welcome to the community.

    I would use the Hehe for funny or silly comments, Insightful for someone who gives a really good answer or reply and Sweet for something that is cool  B)

    Hope you're having a pleasant and amazing Thanksgiving as well!!  :)

    Hello @MarkHawk

    I hope you and the team had a nice break  B)

    Have a question!  Can you please tell me what a "Buddy" badge is?  In the above link you have provided  does not explain anything about it!! 

    If you take a look at my profile, you can see that I am "promoted" to "Buddy".... but, do not know what it is  =)
    ** Also, what is "Name Dropping"?  looks like I have earned this badge too!!

    Thank you & have a great day!
  • MarkHawkMarkHawk Posts: 4,075 Community Manager
    Hi there Pummy!

    The badges are given based on your activities - for instance you get the "Name Dropping" badge after having tagged someone's username :)

    The more badges, posts and activities gives you a higher rank (those are the stars you have under your profile picture)

    You can see all ranks and their description in the last part on this thread - just scroll up to where these two characters are:

     and you'll be able to see all ranks  B)
