I see stars.

What are the stars next to the different users? What are the different level names? How do you rank up, and does that give me "power" or is it just a experience marker?

    it depends on number of comments. i just get one step closer to the 4 stars >:)

    So the people who have many stars do probably less cad and more forums ;)

    but that doesn't make sense.. @3dcad has the highest #of points in onshape.. but has no stars..

    @3dcad should have his own experience category

    Yeah.  They live in abandoned shells from other creatures and don't come out much (hence the joke).

    As they grow they "move house" to bigger shells.

    I saw an interesting feature on a museum that tried glass shells so the people could see the crab inside. The crabs were not interested, until they reversed the direction of the shell's spiral, then they all moved in. B)

    Parametric Hermit crab shell feature anyone?

    in our modern age that should be a core functionality of any cad system.

    @lougallo
    Is it possible to remove Onshape employees from top list, I think 'getting into' top list encourages to stay in forum and answer questions / post interesting material.. At the moment 5/10 are in Ons payroll, I suppose staff will participate anyway ;) (Which is great and not taken for granted :warning: )

    I very much like that the OS folks are on the forum and the list, makes OS seem far more real and not just a faceless corporation.  I see your point though Rami.

    I can't believe I'm that shallow but I answer questions partly to try to be helpful but mostly because I'm fed up with being at the bottom of the list  o:)

    Oh and we still get a years free subscription for every 1000 points, yes?

    I'm afraid that would need at least 10.000 points :(

    Maybe expand the list to top 20, it would be nice to see who is going to drop owen out from top ten :D

    OK maybe we could meet half way:-
      500 Points = OS branded Travel Coffee Mug
    1000 Points = OS branded 3dconnexion space explorer
    2000 Points = OS branded 3dconnexion space explorer pro wireless
    5000 Points = Pretty blue border around your posts and a pay cheque from OS each month.

    Quite true, especially as I can cheat and add IR votes to my total and you still beat me by being all helpful on the forum and answering peoples questions.
    Well done Neil :+1:
