FAQs - User Ranks

Alteryx Alumni (Retired)

What are user ranks?


User ranks are a fun gamification element that incentivizes participation, rewards quality, and establishes reputation in the community. Every member of the community is assigned a rank based on their contributions.


Is there a list of the user ranks?


1 - Dark Matter     (Your journey starts here...)

2 - Matter

3 - Proton

4 - Baryon

5 - Atom

6 - Meteoroid

7 - Meteor

8 - Asteroid

9 - Comet

10 - Fireball

11 - Bolide

12 - Quasar

13 - Pulsar

14 - Magnetar

15 - Aurora

16 - Nebula

17 - Castor

18 - Pollux

19 - Altair

20 - Arcturus

21 - Polaris

22 - Nova

23 - Supernova

24 - Hypernova     (The highest achievement possible!)


What's the deal with the astronomical theme?


Your work is serious business, but your community experience doesn't have to be. The astronomical theme is light, fun, and, frankly, out of this world.


How do I earn a new rank?


User ranks are awarded based on combinations of various types of user activity in the community. In short, the more you participate, the higher a rank you will reach!


What features are unlocked with each rank?


While we won't spoil all of the surprises heading your way, there are a few key features worth highlighting:

  • The private messenger feature is enabled when you reach Matter level status.
  • As soon as you reach Meteoroid status, you have the ability to at-mention fellow community members in your posts.


What are the criteria for each rank? 


It wouldn't be nearly as fun if we told you!


Where does my rank display?


Your rank will display on your profile page, on each post you make, and your profile hover card.


I've seen users with ranks that aren't on the list above. What gives?


It's true. Some folks - Alteryx employees and partners, to name a few - have custom ranks so that you'll always know who you're interacting with.

Love the user ranks, especially not disclosing how one advances in the user ranks! Why so serious? If you on this great community site on a Saturday or Sunday, you probably work too hard and need some levity. Awesome sauce!

So true...So true...

This is extremely helpful! I have been on the community for a while and figured that it was some sort of ranking system, but this is helped make it very clear!

5 - Atom
Interesting - just became a matter!
6 - Meteoroid
Thank you, I have been wondering about what all the levels were and what triggers the changes. Do the color bands in the above post denote different tiers of "unlocked benefits?"
5 - Atom

It explains it all..! thank you :) 

7 - Meteor

It would be more cool than the Aurora borealis if we could click on the ranks above and see all the users which have attained each enlightened level!

8 - Asteroid

Wow, Pretty helpful post on the ranks!

6 - Meteoroid

That was helpful but what is the metric behind? Can you be more transparent on this?

5 - Atom

8 - Asteroid

5 - Atom

8 - Asteroid

Is it only about participation in the community, the more you contribute, the higher you get or is taking lessons in the Academy also considered?

5 - Atom

Thank you! This is helpful.

7 - Meteor

So far I'm loving the ranking system. It has been incentizing me to engage with the community and in turn allowing me to learn the nuances of the tool.

7 - Meteor

Thank you, now I know what I should be aiming at!

@LeahK  (I just learned I could at-mention from reading this post.)


What is the highest level that anyone has achieved achieved so far? Just curious.

5 - Atom

I just joined here and I'm pretty new to this whole experience (including the community). Wonder how I'll make it to the top!

5 - Atom

Excellent idea. Regardless of what background community participants come from, gamification definitely adds a fun dimension (based on my past experience in other organizations).

6 - Meteoroid

Is there any criteria to pass next user ranking?

6 - Meteoroid

Thanks for sharing! Was curious if the rankings had meaning - it's cool to see you can unlock different features.

15 - Aurora

Very cool 

8 - Asteroid

This is great! And what would also be fab is if we could see how many community members are at each level.  Do the colours for the different ranking groups signify anything?
