Badges & Trophies
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a badge?
A badge is an icon on your profile (and tied to your account) that represents the trophy sets (a group of trophies) you've awarded or your participation in an event. There are 3 types of badge:
- Visible: all trophies of this badge are visible.
- Step by step: the next trophy details will be shown once the previous has been awarded.
- Hidden: it will be shown once earned.
How do I unlock a badge?
From your Profile page, click on the "Badges" tab. From your Badges page, select a badge to view its details and tasks.

How do I feature a badge?
You can select any awarded trophy from your Badges page. Your featured badge will display at the top of your profile and in the messages of thread under your avatar.
What is my Level?
Your Level is a summary of your trophy points and shows off your awarded trophies. Each trophy earned increases your Points, and every 10 Points gives you an added Level (at least to start).
How many badges do I need to increase my Level?
When you get started, it takes 10 Points to get to the next level. The amount needed to level up increases every 10 levels, meaning after Level 10 you'll need 20 Points per level, after level 20 you'll need 30 Points per level, etc.
What is the point of my Level?
The Level is a quick way for users to see how much someone has contributed to the community. We have just a few different ways to get badges right now, but we hope to expand that to include all the different ways users contribute.
