About Community Rank Levels, Points and Privileges

About Community Rank Levels

You may have noticed that you earn a rank level for your activity and contributions.

Snag_5d849dd.png                        

Rank Levels are an indication of your involvement and reputation in the community.

You can "Rank Up" by actively contributing to the Community on a regular basis. The further you progress through the ranks the more capabilities and privileges you unlock.

So, what does it takes to earn a higher rank?

Here’s what it takes to earn points and how many points each activity is worth. The more you participate, the higher a rank you will reach!

How many levels are there?

There are 25 rank levels in the HP Community. As a newly registered member you will start on the Rank level “New Member”. The only way is up from here!

 

The easiest way to rank up is to visit regularly and stay active, adding value where you can.

 

What additional capabilities and privileges can I earn?

As a new member, you will start with basic community access.

Higher ranks unlock special privileges and capabilities like the opportunity to further customize your account, write knowledge base articles, get (self) nominated to the HP Expert program, access to private boards, and more.
