Move on up! Increase your reputation score in the community simply by participating in the discussions. A variety of point awards are given for being active in the forums, but the best bonuses go to those who successfully help others. An answer is good, a helpful answer is better and an answer picked as a solution is better yet! As the community grows, we will be adding even more ways to build your status, so stay tuned.
You can watch your reputation grow by keeping an eye on the status bar that is displayed under your name on topic pages. Each time you achieve the next level, the next dot in the bar will turn blue. You can also find out how many points you currently have by clicking on "My Help Profile" in the Welcome section. Your points total will be displayed next to your status bar. Could you be the first to reach the top?
