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.
