Your Atlassian Community Journey

You may be starting as a new user, but it's easy and rewarding to work your way up through the ranks of the Atlassian Community!  I'm New Here is the rank where everyone begins. Your next step is Member, and you can earn this rank by making three posts or comments - anywhere!


Becoming an active member

Work your way up through the badges by posting content, starting and participating in discussions, liking content, and having your content liked.                                    


Kudos to you

Want to earn extra rewards as you go? Join the kudos program to start earning mission badges! The kudos program is a reward system where you can earn points and badges for participating in activities in the Atlassian Community. If you’re looking to get more active, Kudos missions will lead you to new and exciting groups full of people like you. 

With repeatable and limited edition missions, you can earn kudos points and move up the ranks of our quarterly leaderboard. Each quarter, you have a chance to become a Leader of the Pack and earn yet another exclusive badge.

Getting your High Five

A "high five" is a recognition for members upon receiving 5 accepted answers in the online community. Recognitions are distributed every Wednesday in a dedicated thread. Come check it out and drop in some celebratory GIFs for our amazing answerers! We love them.



Getting more involved

You might decide to answer questions and earn your Answerer badge and join the Atlassian Answerers group. But, having accepted answers is not the end-all be-all to becoming an amazing part of our community. Asking questions, or even just leading a member in the right direction, are awesome ways to give back to the community.

Participating in groups and discussions frequently is another great way to get engaged. Weekly topics such as Miscellaneous Monday, Welcome Wednesday, Throwback Thursday, and signing up for Friday Fun are just a few ways to interact with other people and get to know more about the Atlassian Community.


Getting published

Feel yourself to be more of a Shakespeare? You can share your knowledge by writing and publishing high quality articles. Eventually, becoming an Atlassian Author.

The Atlassian Community is an excellent place to build a library of work for the benefit of your readers and for your career. Authors have the added advantage of working directly with members of the Atlassian Product teams, giving them exclusive insight into upcoming campaigns and focus areas.


Getting recognized

In celebration of all the questions you’ve answered, the solutions that have helped others, and the upvotes you’ve receive - we recognize the community members who have become increasingly active and participatory as our Rising Stars. Rising Stars will earn a certificate of achievement, kudos badge and will now get a visible lozenge next to their profile name for their dedication to the Atlassian community!

Community Leadership
Once you've gotten your Rising Star certificate, you're in a great place to apply for our Community Leader program and its amazing benefits - in addition to the upgraded community lozenge. If you're nervous about applying, don't worry - even if you don't qualify quite yet, we'll coach you on any requirements you might be missing and help you get there.  That gives you access to free Certifications, a private Slack channel, direct access to Atlassian product teams and executives, and so much more.
We're excited to welcome you to the ranks of our Rising Stars

Hi @saralie s_ Please correct my understanding. I believe this post will help future applicants understand the pre-requisites to apply for an ACL given the structured approach and level of community engagement.
