Many members have requested an achievement or rewards system to illustrate their contribution within the community and to compete with other members -- today we're happy to announce "badges". You can earn badges based on completing specific activities within the community. All the badges you've earned are displayed on your profile, with the higher-value badges previewed on your forum questions and blog articles to showcase your credibility.
New community members earn an initial "You've earned your first badge" and existing members will be happy to know that badges are retroactive based on all the activities you've taken since you first joined. Ready to get started? Take a look at your badges and the overall leaderboard.
EARN BADGESThere are 4 types of badges, each worth a number of points based on the complexity of the badge requirements:Specific badges -- Complete activities such as filling out specific fields in your profile or change your avatar image and you'll earn a badge. Tiered badges -- Continue to complete certain activities such as writing blog articles or answering forum questions and you can earn higher tiered badges (e.g., you can earn the Troubleshooter 1 badge for responding to a forum question with a suggested answer 3 times and the Troubleshooter 2 badge when you reach 25 suggested answers). Level badges [NEW!]-- Badges are organized into "levels" -- as you complete all the badges in a specific level, you'll earn a "level completed" badge. To earn the Level 1 badge, all you will need to do is join a product group, ask 3 questions in a forum, follow 1 other member, subscribe to 1 tag or keyword, and add an avatar image on your profile. Learn more about level badgesSpecial badges -- Perform above-and-beyond to earn special awards, such as the product-specific Community Contributor badge, which is awarded quarterly to the top 5 members with the most verified answers to forum questions.
SHOWCASE YOUR CREDIBILITYAs you earn badges, they are displayed on the Badges tab of your profile, for all members to see. The following higher-valued badges are displayed at the bottom of your forum posts and on your blog articles to showcase your credibility as other members read your content:Forums -- Problem Solver 4 and 5, Troubleshooter 4 and 5, Level 3 and 4, Microsoft Community Contributor, MVPBlogs -- Blogger 3, Level 3 and 4, Microsoft Community Contributor, MVP
In addition, if you are an MVP, product-specific Community Contributor, or member of one of the User Groups, a badge will also be displayed on your forum posts and blog articles.
COMPETE WITH OTHER MEMBERSAs you participate in the Microsoft Dynamics Community you can compete with other members in the following ways:Friends -- Compare your badges and points to your friends by selecting the Badges tab on your profile and then selecting the Friends Leaderboard tab.Everyone in the community -- Want to see how you compare to everyone in the community? Select the Leaderboard link from the Badges page within your product group.
FEEDBACK?We hope you have fun earning new badges and competing with other members. We'd love to hear your feedback on the badges and ideas for new badges -- please leave a comment below or send us a tweet with our #MSDynComm hashtag. Thanks!

I am a current premium member of the AXUG, how do I enable the badge for this on this site?
IMHO, there should be one more badge , which should be awarded on asking great questions.
Great incentive. Feels like the xbox achievements. Gotta cath em all. Sorry for being childish but this certainly motivated me XD
