A community is driven by its members. They are its identity and soul. A community prospers when its members progress and the vice versa. As members are our asset, this community is honored to introduce Badges and Point system for them. Below are few questions that will help you better understand this functionality.

Badges are awards that you earn by your contribution towards the community. Badges give you recognition and respect between the members. Also, each badge will confer some points which can be exchanged later for prizes.

You can find your badges in profile section.
Q. How many types of badges are there?
Currently there are three types of badges. We plan to include more in near future.
The Charter badge is awarded to the founding members of the forum. They were here from the beginning.
The anniversary badge is awarded with respect to number of years with us. They are starting to be a fixture of the forum! More the number; Senior the member.
The comment badge is awarded according to number of comments. It means that you are staying with us and contributing! Commenting is the best way to get involved.
Now, there are different badges within each type. Depending on the numbers, you can have multiple badges of same type. For example, if you have made 15 comments then you will get two badges of the same commenting type. One for 1 comment and second for crossing 10 comments. More details in next question.

The number in the badge is its level. Higher the level, bigger the player. For example, a third level comment badge means you have posted more than 50 comments.

And so on.
