You may have noticed that each member who posts content to the Acer Community is assigned a rank. This Rank is an easy way to quickly identify the level of contribution a member has made to our Community.
Each member's rank can be found directly under the member name. For example, below Red-Sand you can see the rank of Skilled Specialist. This member has earned this ranking by answering a certain number of posts, receiving a certain number of kudos and being online a certain amount of time among other criteria.
You can be sure that Red-Sand has put in considerable time creating quality posts as judged by their peers based on his rank.
The Community rank structure is designed as a hierarchy starting from the time a member initially registers (Visitor tier) until they reach the top tier of Guru. There are several levels within each of the 24 tiers.
Also once a member reaches the Enthusiast Tier, an image is displayed next to their name. Its the very familiar Wi-Fi image we see so frequently. Members who have earned this image can consider it a badge of distinction. Also as they continue to earn a higher ranking, they will see the number of waves increase from one set to four at the Overclocked Contributor rank.
Its smart to pay attention to a member's ranking. Our Top contributing members have worked hard to earn it.
