Hi I have a number of courses on Udemy. My first one I created in September 2019. I must admit this course was not a main focus of my business and I didnt focus enough to look at this part of Udemy. Recently I have created 5 new courses, and I have focused more on how to make Udemy a more integral part of my business. I see some instructors are level 2 or 3. How do I go up in ranking to a higher level? Some forums I can not comment on, when will I be allowed to do so?
Can students see the new instructor label?
Are you talking about the "Top Liked Authors" ranking? That's only visible on the instructor community page; students won't ever see that. So don't worry about that at all.
What's an example of a forum you can't comment on? Apart from a few closed "user groups", or threads where a moderator disabled commenting because the discussion was going in a bad direction, you should have access to pretty much everything here as a published instructor.
