Besides gaining reputation with your questions and answers, you receive badges for being especially helpful. Badges appear on your profile page, flair, and your posts.

There are three different types:

  • Bronze

    Bronze badges encourage users to try out new features on the site. They are easy to get if you try!

  • Silver

    Silver badges are less common than bronze ones. You'll need to plan your strategy to get one of these.

  • Gold

    Gold badges recognize important contributions from members of the community. They are rarely awarded.
