Thank you for enlightening me with these badges which inspire me a lot.

Thanks it really helped


Thank you for the interesting information 🙏

A sense of community is necessary not only in business but in life as well. A bunch of people should come forward to create a community to strengthen the system and encourage others. The leadership needs to further encourage the community members and that is what we can see here in this post. 

Thank you @ChrystieV for explaining these ranks! I appreciate these efforts!


Step by step guide on the ranking, thank you. Easy to understand.

I love this, thank you Chrystie!

Thank you so much! This is helpful! 😀

Very helpful thanx

Very useful information. Many thanks.

Thank you for this step-by-step guide. It is well informative. 

Nice, the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. Thank you for this.

Thank you so much, 

I found this helpful.

Thank you for the explanation.

Very knowledgeable 

There really should be higher tier badges, should be an easy thing to raise. 

With more than 2500 liked received, I have this from over 4 years ago 🙂


What about 100, 250, 500, 1000, 2500, 5000 etc, for everything, replies, discussions started, and whatever else there is. 

While it means nothing, gamification implement with that low limits, is very meh.

@Thor Your wish is my command 🙂 Haha. We will be migrating to a new platform within the next two months and ranks will be re-calculated so it's possible that you will see a new higher rank at that time. More to come when we get closer to the migration date.

Well now, there we go on the solutions and turnarounds 😄 @ChrystieV 
Looking forward to it, any chance of dark mode?

Thor Pedersen - IT , Project Management, and Cyber Security trainer

Hi @Thor


We hear you about the dark mode. (I think it has been raised in the community before.)

Currently, it’s not available on the new platform, but it's something we can look into  🙌.

I am about to publish my first training course (IT consulting guide, 75 video hours), and would like an expert to take a general look at my course (as a paid assignment), and make suggestions.

I have followed the general recommendations and best practices, but might be missing a few things.

Any recommendations?



Hi @HarryWebb602


How exciting that you are about to publish your first course! It sounds like you've put a lot of hard work into it. Our community champion, Scott Duffy, has generously offered to provide feedback to new instructors in this post. I highly recommend posting there.


Please let me know if you have any other questions 😊
