Building discussions left, right and centre? Forging yourself as a bit of a specialist or helping users with a range of subjects? However you choose to contribute, we’ve got the ranking and badges to reward you for all your efforts.

Your journey as an OVO Forum user is symbolised by your rank. If you help other users, your rank will change to reflect this. To become a legend, first you must choose your path!

Here are the badges you can earn along your way (you'll also need to make sure your profile is fully set up, including a snazzy profile picture):

- Power up: Earn this by becoming part of the community.
- PAYG Expert: Get this by being the person to talk to about anything Pay as you go.
- Pay monthly Expert: You’ll get this when you're a pro with anything Pay monthly.
- Smart guy: Earn this by being in the know with all things to do with smart meters.
- Energy saver: You’ll need to be a pro when it comes to energy efficiency to get this.
- Billing mastermind: Earn this by becoming an expert with billing and payments.

We're also looking at extra incentives, like visiting our HQ in Bristol. To be in with a chance, you have to be super engaged and helpful! When here you could try out the famous treehouse slide and enjoy a cup of moderator tea - milk, one sugar.

What are you waiting for? It’s time to get earning!

Great idea with the badges etc. As a scout leader I'm all for badges!

Incentive is always good. I'll yab on about anything so getting rewarded for offering good advice is welcome!

Could you please explain the badges earned system

Hey @Derek Higgs moved your question here as@Tim_OVO's topic explains all. Basically the more you get involved across the different areas of the forum, the more badges you can earn.

The idea is then others can see what you're great at helping with or are knowledgeable on, and ask you for help!

We are planning on making some changes to the badges soon, so watch this space for updates!!

Glad you love a badge Aadil! And guess what, great news, you are our first user to win a badge on the forum! There's plenty more where that came from, so I wonder when you will win the next one and if anyone else will beat you to it!

A big thank you for all your contribution so far, we really appreciate it! Keep up the good work!

For those that have yet to win a badge, make sure you have completed your profile, you never know that may well help you earn something in return......... 🆒

Well done again Emma, make sure any customer service questions, you post them here first...!

Thanks

I get the same message and it's because when you click the link in the email it doesn't use any saved sign in details an asks you to sign in again - it then takes you to the page :)


This should be resolved now, we did spot a bit of an issue but it should now be fixed.

Let us know if the problem continues.

Pop round to our Bristol office, Smiter, try out the slide and we might throw in a coffee as well!

All in a days work,
Tim


Sounds like a plan but from here to Bristol isn't exactly popping in distance. lol.


Why don't you make a day of it?! We have some amazing sights in Bristol such as Clifton Suspension Bridge, The SS Great Britain and Blaise Castle! We're biased but we think the OVO office is also up there with the top sights....
