Starting today you can now earn badges that showcase your expertise level within a particular Community. 

 

There are two ways to earn credit towards expertise badges.  Either have your responses to questions marked as "Correct," OR have your replies "Endorsed".  The more of your replies marked as correct or endorsed, the higher the level of expertise badges you will be awarded.

 

Expertise badges are currently available in the following communities:

 

 

Each Community has 3 levels of Expertise.  I'll illustrate how to earn each Expertise badge using the Developer Community as an example.  The rules are consistent across all the Communities listed above.  Note: totals are not cumulative.  For example, to reach Level 2, you must first earn Level 1, then acquire the additional marks to your replies.

Upon earning a badge you will be highlighted as a recipient in the Developer Experts page.  Each Community will have a dedicated page showcasing its Experts.

 

We hope everyone is as excited about the new Expert Level Program as we are.

 

Cheers,
