The core of any lively community is great content and high quality contributions from its members. We value your contributions to the Optiverse community and want to reward you for sharing great experiences, knowledge, best practices, and solutions.

The Optiverse community is rolling out badges, higher levels of status, and new leaderboards to spotlight your optimization achievements!


What are badges?

Badges are an exciting new element introduced starting today. Community members earn badges by participating, sharing ideas, achieving certification and more. Along with the ‘Badges to earn’ on your Profile page, we will also have surprise badges you can unlock along the way!

What makes this valuable to me?

  • Show off your expertise
  • Gain insights on the qualifications of other community members
  • Share your status and achievements with your team
  • Access VIP events for being a top contributor
  • And more..!

How do I know my current status in the community?
