  • You may have the rank but you need to have specified number of scraps, read this ........


    You earn points on the basis of a total number of posts, replies and responses every month. To get these points you need to be amongst 11th to 100th in the forums (amongst members) every month (with a minimum of: 20 posts, 15 replies, 15 responses in a month) .

    Your forum rank does not depend on your rank in answer list. Its the total point you acquire in the full month. Your answer list rank depends on how many of ur answers are marked.


    Different actions on the site will provide you with different points. See the chart below for things you can do to earn points.

    Action Points
    You reply to a question or bug thread started by another user 2
    Your reply is marked as the answer 10
    Your reply is voted as being helpful 5 x (# of votes)
    Your reply to a bug thread is marked as a workaround 10
    You submit a bug that is resolved as fixed by Microsoft 20
    A bug you submitted is validated by another user 4 x (# of validations)

    So you see your answer getting marked is just one of the aspects. Moreover u also need to clear the SRS benchmark of post, replies and responses.
