Today, the Qlik Community Team rolled out new rank names to our community in Phase 1 of an update to the Gamification system. You can read more about the project goals in this blog post.
As part of the project, Qlik Community members received new rank names as well as new rank images. The names were applied automatically as part of the launch effort. There is nothing for you to do. The new rank names are as follows:
The rank names were created so as to be universally understood and easy to understand. I'd like to thank the Qlik Community MVPs for their feedback and Qlik's Brand and Creative Services Team for designing the new images.
To move from one rank to the next requires a progression in the level of your activity on our community. We do not share the algorithm used behind the scenes. What we can tell you is that we measure activity based on: Likes, Replies, Solutions, and Topics started. The behavior we encourage in this community is members helping other members. As was the case with the prior ranking system, roman numeral progression between ranks are utilized (eg. Creator I, Creator II, Creator III). This enables us to give credit without having members wait so long to progress to the next level.
We know and understand there is SO much more we can do with gamification. This is only the beginning. Please be sure to read the blog post so that you can review and understand all the details.
