Community Recognition Program

The Community Recognition Program is a way for Cadence to recognize community participation. By sharing your real-world expertise and broadening your knowledge, you will earn points and increase your reputation.

We encourage you to give answers as well as seek answers. You’ll both expand your skill set and help others expand theirs, and that expansion will be visible and valuable to the entire community.

So, join in. Start a conversation. Ask a question. Be the reason that a question gets solved. And last but not least, don’t forget to have fun!

Points

Each time you perform a specific action in the community forums, you’ll earn points.

Q & A

Why do I have points and badges already?

If you have engaged with the Community in the past, you’ll notice that points and some of the badges have already been awarded to you and are visible on your profile page. This is because points and badges are awarded based on your existing accomplishments. You will earn additional badges as you continue to participate in the Community.

Where can I view all my badges?

To see all the badges you’ve earned, visit your “My Profile” page.

Will there be more badges?

Yes, we plan to continue to add more badge types and new challenges in the future to keep the Community exciting.

If you have any additional questions about your badges and points, please send me a direct message.
