Community Badges & Ranks

Welcome to the Equinix Community! We use badges and ranks to encourage participation and recognize member contributions. As you progress through the various levels of participation, you will receive a new rank and/or badge.

What are Badges?

You can find badges featured on your profile. They are awarded based on a set of participation criteria that can be found by hovering over the badges when you open your badge list page. Stay tuned for announcements on how to earn new and one-of-a-kind badges.

What are ranks?

Ranks are awarded based on your all-time participation, including starting new discussions, and adding comments or giving kudos. When you earn a new rank, it is displayed next to your posts, on your profile and other places where your name appears. The more you participate, the higher you will rise in the ranks.

How do I share feedback on badges & ranks?

It’s easy. Submit an idea under Community Improvements.
