Hello Community Members!   We’re proud to offer the AARP Online Community ACE program, which helps recognize your contributions to our community by using recognition from your peers as the key criteria!   Why did we create this program? Because YOU are the key to our community. You are what keeps it strong by being there for others, by providing short cuts that help many, by providing insights that help us think differently, by answering questions and providing tips. Sometimes you make a difference just by being you – helping us smile, laugh, and get through the day.   So, for doing the little things and for contributing in a big way, you deserve to be recognized by the people you serve, engage with, and support. That’s why we’ve designed the program to be primarily based on the kudos you receive from fellow community members.   To date, 24 individuals have already qualified as ACEs and we’d like you to be one too. Here’s how:   Upload your Profile Picture Fill Out “Tell Us About Yourself” section Share Your “Areas of Knowledge” Receive 25 Kudos* a rolling six month period or since program launch (12/13/19) Be in good standing without Community Violations for at least 30 days *excluding on Politics, Current Events forum posts   It’s easy to get started by expanding the information about yourself in your newly enhanced "My Profile." You’ll also see a progress bar so you can see how close you are to becoming an ACE.     Once you become an ACE you will notice the ACE icon on your profile picture and the language / bar will change at the bottom of your profile.     Others will be able to see when you have become an ACE too, via the icon and viewing your profile.     Get started today and join the ranks of other ACEs who help keep our Community strong!    For any questions or if you need help completing requirements, simply reply to this post or send us a private message!
