    I think this is an awesome initiative, will get people to post more - hopefully & constructively. What prevents someone from abusing this and adding useless complaints/comments just to get to Green?

    I'm glad you all like it :) 

    @Imran There's nothing technically to prevent someone from posting simply to get a badge, but we moderate the forums closely and we'll flag anyone who seems to be abusing the platform. 

    @Andrea Me encanto tu respuesta! Me hiso reír :) 

    @Heiko You are a Wrike ninja!

    Stephanie - your email stated "there are three tiers: Green Belt, Blue Belt, and Black Belt." Your description above states:

    • Black Belt
    • Green Belt
    • Orange Belt

    Think we need a consensus on the color levels.  :)

    More importantly really what is the purpose? I comment because I hope to influence and inform the programmers to tackle issues of importance to work productivity and accuracy. I don't appreciate the program, nor do I think it's a valid application to designate users.

    Hi Micki, we were originally going to have a Blue Belt option but changed it to Orange Belt because our own Wrike Team Member badges are already blue and we didn't want things to get confusing. 

    The idea around badges is to highlight people who have been more active on the forums and recognize people who have gone above and beyond in the contributions they make or things they've shared. Having badges also helps all Community readers see who is a particularly active member and take that into account as they read threads. 
     
    We are invested in our product feedback program and will continue to take all votes and comments into account as we share information with our team internally. 
     
    If you don't want to have a badge we can definitely remove it, just let me know if that's what you would like.

    Good idea but would be nice to have an official certificate program, too, that could be added to a Linkedin profile.

    @Paul Hi 👋 The first two tiers of badges (Orange and Green) are given based on the number of posts and/or comments you've made. There's more about it on our badge post

    We're just getting started with Wrike and have been impressed with the trial so far. Lots of great features, but there's always room for more ideas. It's great to see a product team active with it's user group!

    Interesting Wrike feature. Are they given automatically or at different times throughout the year?

    Hi Bailey, happy to hear this interests you 👍

    Badges are not awarded automatically. We run badge reports every 4-6 weeks and if you're awarded a badge, you'll receive a congratulatory email 🙂

    How do you find out when and how you will gain a belt? Is there someone that tracks this or do you have to submit for it?
