Here at Yahoo! Answers, we use badges to designate the various types of members participating in the Yahoo! Answers community. Here is an explanation of what the different badges mean:
- An Official badge indicates that the identity of a community member asking or answering questions on Yahoo! Answers has been verified by a member of the Yahoo! Answers team. This helps us distinguish our celebrity, professional, and sponsor participants within the Yahoo! Answers community.
- The Staff badge displays when members of the Yahoo! Answers team or other Yahoo! staff members officially ask or answer questions on Answers.
- The Top Contributor badge is used to recognize a member of the Answers community who has shown that they are knowledgeable in a particular category. The top contributor badge is dynamic, which means that you earn it or lose it depending on your recent participation in a particular category. To learn more about Top Contributors, please review Top Contributor help.
It’s important to remember that Q&A content on Answers should not replace the advice and consultation of a qualified professional. All answers posted on Yahoo! Answers (even answers from staff) are only the opinion of the poster.
