The Micro Center Community has always been a great place to learn something new, chat with other tech enthusiasts, or just get help with a new build. But now we want to reward you for doing just that!
We've been hard at work revamping our point system to make it even more rewarding, with new tiers, new reactions, and of course, new rewards. Here's what's changed:
We've made ranking up easier than ever and are introducing rewards for each level:
Members are brand-new to the Community. They can still post and engage with the Community, but can't post external links.
Ranking up to Enthusiast is as easy as adding a profile picture and making a post and boom! You're a full-fledged Community member with external links!
Once you hit 100 points, you rank up to Power User and gain access to the members-only section of the Community. What goes on in there? Only Power Users and above can say for sure.
At 250 points, you know your way around the Community, and you know good stuff when you see it. Which is why you'll be able to "Promote" posts, instantly boosting them (and the poster!) by 5x more!
You've been able to "Like" posts on the Community for a while now, but we've upped our reaction game. Now, reactions give users 1 point per reaction - and can lead to even more points with badges!
Our badges haven't changed much, but there are more of them! Now every reaction has tiers, rewarding more points with each new badge you earn!
and that's just the start!
Throughout the month of March, earning points won't just level you up on the Community, it has the chance to score you some sweet Micro Center swag including a $250 Micro Center gift card!
Each week, we'll be giving away a free Community-exclusive Micro Center t-shirt to the user at the top of our leaderboard. Then, at the end of the month, whoever has the most points overall will get that sweet, sweet $250 Micro Center gift card.
(see terms and conditions for full contest rules):
Just hang out with the Community and earn points!
Points can be earned by:
That's all there is to it - so go out there and make some new friends!

Contest entry window: 3/1/22 – 11:59 PM EST 3/31/22
Four winners will receive a Micro Center t-shirt
One winner will receive a $250 Micro Center gift card
Even if im not 18, can I still get the high rank but not receive the rewards and pass them along to the next person below me?
Just wanted to check if there is a problem with ranking up. I changed my profile pic and it still shows that I have a single star next to my name.
Also it seems that I can't earn the "first answer" badge
Your profile should rank up shortly - there's sometimes a bit of a delay. It may also help to log out then back in.
The "First Answer" badge is awarded after a comment is selected as an answer, not after posting an answer. That said - you should now have the badge.
sounds good, might try to run for it
T-shirt would be nice
Rank 4 I'm coming! Lets Go!!!
Looking for a living room entertainment center for the family to watch movies and shows; a small form factor would be awesome!
Basically a build of what I have with a few enhancements. :)
Here is some of my dream components, top of the line cpu with a really nice mobo and decent gfx card. the rest of the components is to save money.
Not crazy about lights on the ram, function over looks. Its a decent build for gaming but not overpaying for gfx cards. 850$ range is already pretty darn high def not wanting to pay 1k+ for a gfx card.
how to rank up?
It would be great to get this pc to be able to work from home and spend more time with the family.
To be able to post links, all you need to do is set up a profile picture!
You'd want to make sure it was added/uploaded properly, looks like you still have a default image.
Rich Text Editor.
To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph.
An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu.
Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase
