Missions are the patterns of activity that show off your community expertise and allow you to level up in a specific area. Each time you complete all actions in a mission, you move up to the next level of that mission.
A summary of missions, the related actions you need to complete and the total points you need to earn for each mission to level up and have a chance to earn an expert badge. Good luck!
|Mission||Actions||Points Required to Level Up|
As you complete the above missions, if you’re the in the top five for leveling up on that mission, you’ll also earn the following expert badges. Expert badges are awarded at the end of every 30 day cycle in the community.
Quests are related to missions because they can include more than one action, but you don’t level up. Once you complete all of the actions in a quest, it is complete and you earn the points and badges. They’re badges of honor for successfully completing a quest. Discover what Quests are available in the community today below and start completing actions to earn points and badges to proudly display on your profile.
