Points & Badges

Version 21

    The forums are a great place to come and get help and guidance, but they're also a great place to help others! If you find that you enjoy helping other users here, you may be interested in learning more about our ACP & MVP programs.

     

     

    How to get more involved

    The first step is simple- keep answering user's questions. This is the core of our forums and the place we need the most help. As you help others, you may find that you learn more and more yourself!

     

    What's the deal with points?

    As you answer questions and participate in the community, you'll find that you start to receive points. This system encourages community engagement and validation.
