For those who have already joined many of the conversations happening you might have noticed that you have a label/title next to your name, like c436ae948d684935a91fce8b976e5aa7
This in terms of the platform is referred to as your "rank" and you can find out more information about it here.
So what is a rank?
A rank is the set of activity thresholds a member must meet and the rewards the member receives as a result. The rank ladder is the full set of ranks available to earn, from easiest to earn at the bottom of the rank ladder, to hardest to earn at the top of the rank ladder.
Unless of course you are an employee in which case your rank will simply be shown as "employee" or the SAP logo as opposed to:
The more you contribute, the higher your rank will go and over time we will be adding additional features and functionality based on rank so getting started now will give you that head start!
Speaking of new functionality, we are also looking for folks to interview around our Profile project (bringing all the aspects together for a more seamless experience).
As time progresses, you will see more and more use of the Groups area for different topics and activities (like Devtoberfest) and you will see more and more integration of UI, navigation, profile, etc as well.
