A lot of the time when I go to answer some of your questions in the Forums, or on a class page, I have to look up your record in my customer database so I know what level to answer your question at. If you're just a Beginner user, then I know I have to answer your question a certain way. If you're a Developer user, you might get a different answer. I've also noticed a lot of you helping each other in the Forums, which is fantastic. So this will help you also know what kind of a user you're having a conversation with, and where they're from. Plus, it's fun!

These are the people who approve your posts and help to answer your questions. Be nice to them. Richard and Alex.
More people who approve your posts and help to answer your questions. Be nice to them, too. Adam, Kevin, and Scott. If one of the moderators has been helpful to you by answering your questions in the Forums, please feel free to donate to their Tip Jar.

You'll get a badge once you've been a student of mine after 1, 5, 10, and 15 years. Your anniversary date is based on the day you enrolled in (purchased) your first class. I created in 2002, so we celebrated our 20th Anniversary in 2022. We've still got a few 20-year students floating around. If you think your date is wrong, let me know.
