6. Community Forum Ranks
Official WHMCS Staff & Moderators are identified by the rank of WHMCS Staff directly below their username.
The WHMCS Community runs a ranking system, new forum members start with the rank of Newbie and can progress based on the number of posts, reputation points and length of time active on the community
Some users have a special “Super Users” rank. These members are a select group of elite community members that are long standing mentors in the community, courteous to other members, always providing technical insight and advice, and generally helping to make our forums a better place to learn, troubleshoot and advance.
The WHMCS community ranking formula is changed from time to time and without notice.
