Answerer challenge badge now live!

No matter where you are on your Atlassian journey, we bet you know enough to answer a question or two. And all you need to do to earn the Answerer badge is to answer a couple of questions!


Here are some handy resources:

The Community Leaders guide to A+ answers

A feed of all unanswered questions

Mythbusters: I'm too new to contribute

If you’d like to get more specific, your homepage feed is your best friend! There, you can select “Questions” and “Has no replies” to get a feed of unanswered questions, and check the products you’re interested in to get only questions about those products. You can even enter “cloud” or “server” tags to narrow it down further. The community will remember your preferences anytime you log in.

 And what comes next?

When you have earned that, keep answering questions. Once you start getting your answers accepted, you might just get a high five from the community on your path to becoming a Rising Star!

And someday, even a Community Leader. 🏆

It all starts with the desire to share your knowledge and expertise with the community. So why not start now?

@Monique vdB this is great a new month and a new badge to earn.  I better find some questions to answer!

Please, everyone strive for this.  There are so many superb answers in the community, I have (almost) stopped asking questions. 

But things change, and, to be completely selfish, I don't want to fall behind the changes, so I rely on other people's answers a lot.  And although I know some answers get no useful response or feedback, I am increasingly going to (potential) clients who say "I found this on community, what do you think?", and being able to say "the community can help" is fantastic.

Our openness is a lot more shared than most of us expect.  This is a good thing, in my humble opinion.

Another way to find questions to answer is to use the Questions filter and Unsolved.Screen Shot 2019-10-04 at 2.15.39 PM.png

The first reply is not always the best solution or even a solution at all. Someone else may just be commenting that they have the same issue.

@Monique vdB didn't know the "server" tag - that's really helpful! 

Let's get it on and be helpful for all our community buddies. It's interesting how many problems I solved by stumbling across them here before I got them for myself.

Community has been the most helpful resource for me as I learned Jira and got up to speed. I then wanted to give back to the Community by helping others with their needs by answering some questions and providing advice. The benefit goes both ways, and I encourage you to answer when you can!!

@Fabienne Gerhard oh good! Glad that's helpful! We're now asking for hosting details when the post is created, so this works for product tags too. So you can enter confluence-server as your tag and get a feed of those questions.

I think the best thing about Atlassian Community is that we can connect directly with people from Atlassian which seems exciting.

Awesome new badge :)

I encourage everyone to get out there and share their knowledge. Collaboration and sharing is very powerful -  I like the challenge of helping others and finding alternatives to things other users want to do.

But equally, I find it compelling how passionate and knowledgeable other users are - I've learnt a lot from this community and I enjoy finding an answer which helps me overcome a question, seeing an alternative I'd never considered or a new app or function I haven't tried before.

And that all starts with you! I hope all of you answer as many questions as you can :)

Or in other words...

Can I turn off badges for my profile?

This feels like school where everyone got a ribbon.

I am here to get information about work, not this stuff.

At the very least how do I turn off getting notified about them???

Jack Brickey Community Leader Jan 12, 2020

Dylan, you can change your notification preferences under your profile. Just click on you avatar.

@Dylan Taylor this direct link should take you to your settings page:

Look for "Badges I earn" and change the frequency to "Never," then save your preferences.
