So you discover the Spotify Community, start reading a bit and then you see it; all these people with different colors and ranks and they make no sense whatsoever. (Or maybe they do, in which case you can skip this post).

 

Lots, if not all, forums, have some form of hierarchy, or ranking system. These systems exist because everyone can quickly get some idea of who this person is, posting on the forum.

Someone could be a new visitor or a regular member, maybe even a VIP.

 

Below you can see the different ranks and how they increase.

 

Would you like to get a higher rank and you don't know how? Well, the formula may be a tightly kept secret, but basically doing these things can help you move up in the Spotify Community:

- posting and replying

- adding helpful tags to your and others' posts and ideas

- giving and receiving kudos on helpful posts and good ideas

- posting ideas in the Idea Exchange

- being a nice person

 

And here they are, all the ranks in one place (high to low):

Is community veteran acheiveable now, or is it still limited? This thread makes it seem achievable ;)

 

Also, you should mention solutions in the OP :)

Veterans are still what we previously called Founders; which means these ranks are inherited by a select few who were here already a loooong time ago.
