    You've been around on the Community, perhaps written a post or two and you've got a notification to say you've leveled up πŸŽ‰ but what exactly does this mean?

    User levels are a great way for you to see another community member's role and activity and to celebrate your own accomplishments. They show if someone has been very active and helpful in the community.

    As you increase your contribution activity, for example creating new topics or providing solutions, your user level can increase. Every time you earn a new level, you will receive an email notification. Once you have gained a new level, your level will be displayed right underneath your avatar; mine says Community Manager.

    You can also view your own or someone else's user level by clicking onto their user profile. Click their username > then view profile.

    Our Community Team uses the community ranks to keep an eye out for some of its most active and passionate community members. We love to read your valuable content, and you may be recognised for your contributions!

    Badges!

    You may have seen a few colour badges under users names and thought; what are they? What do they mean? How can I earn them?
    Badges act as an award that publicly highlights something positive that a community member has achieved in the community. You can earn these badges by giving or receiving thumbs up, or writing or commenting on threads.

    We currently award three badges; Influencer, Cheerleader and Generator with 5 different levels.
    Green = Level 1, Blue = Level 2, Pink = Level 3, Purple = Level 4 and Red = Level 5

    My 'level' never changes so I'm assuming that eon-next are "hoping to have a system in place soon" to achieve this πŸ™„

    Maybe I’m too old, but all the different badges, colours, levels and total scores are a bit beyond me. I can understand number of posts and thumbs up ok. Gold, silver and bronze would make perfect sense for any level of achievement but some have five badges with rainbow colours and I’ve no idea what most of it means.

    I’m not knocking it and I’m all for a bit of colour but I’d need a user guide to refer to in order to work it all out.

    BEKKIIIIIIIII!!! I think you broke the system again! XD

    Do I need to get @HannahD_EONNext to tell you off again for smashing up the system @Beki_EONNext ? :P

    So Beki, quite what has @Andy65 done to break the system? Their avatar of a cat is especially warm and cuddly, just the image that Eon Next tries to portray!

    As to the members event, an online meeting devoid of food and (alcoholic) drink doesn't really appeal that much, but rest assured I'll endeavour to keep up my record of calling things as I see them, whether they're flattering or not to Eon Next. Perhaps if we could submit our questions in advance for the Q&A session, the responders would then be able to give substantive answers, rather than the flannel we get from politicians.

    The plot thickens... I've just noticed I have entered the Top Contributors list with a 'Total Score' higher than yours. How can that possibly be? πŸ€”

    Does that mean I need an avatar now?

    Bring on the User Guide 🀣

    ​​​​​​​Well done! I think the computer doesn't Like the Cat avatar - perhaps a picture of a bar of sunlight from the early part of the 1900's would be suitable for you? 😜

    I think I've committed some fouls and had points deducted.

    I’ve never had an avatar anywhere. To be honest with you I’m clueless and wouldn’t know where to start. I have read instructions but they go over my head a bit. What a Luddite.

    Cancel that... I had a go. Not very good but let's consider it a 'work in progress' πŸ˜‚

    I actually do know how the system works here, but at the same time I'm an evil genius and I don't reveal all my cards...
