I do feel a bit dumb for asking after all these years of using Pandora. What exactly do the rankings mean? I have been moved to the opening act and I am unsure of what this means. I was classified as underground right before this. The badges make perfect sense to me. I have a few more to go before I have them all. I do not have the first two for some reason. I do have my ten-year and twenty-year ones to get. As well as several podcasts. I am getting close though! I just cannot seem to grasp the concept and meaning behind the rankings. I do like the little rocketship that shows next to them in the notifications! Lol
To put it simply, the ranking system on community takes into account all engagement across the community forums. The more you interact with content and posts, the more you'll rank up.
Hope this helps to explain! 😄
