Occasional Contributor

This question is to the Microsoft team, I keep getting constant notifications as soon as I post or contribute knowledge in a discussion thread or like some posts. Do these badge in our profile serve some purpose once we became a active contributor.

Does Microsoft provide some certificate once we reach to the top level rank in contributions. Please let me know. Thanks.

@Bijay305 What kind of notifications or badges?

@Kevin Crossmanlike in my profile it says Occasional Contributor and then my next badge will be a Contributor

@Bijay305 Ah, you're asking about a feature of the Microsoft Tech Community (this site). You posted the question in the Yammer community, so I thought this was related to Yammer.

 

Suggest asking the question here:

@Kevin CrossmanThanks for the suggestion. I've posted my question today.
