@Troy17 Nice to see you around the community!
Some incentives from joining the community include:
Your current ranking is Local Performer. If you take a look at other users across the community, you'll start to notice some of their rankings may be different from yours. As you continue to engage and interact with content/posts on the community, you will start to rank up as well.
The ability to earn new badges is another incentive of being active in the community.
If you take a look at your profile, you can see your current badges.
As you continue to interact and engage with content in the community, you will start to earn additional badges.
If you are looking for basic tips or instructions on how to navigate the community, I recommend checking out this thread: Welcome to the Pandora Community!
Hope this helps!
