Hi @TheWatchman626, Thank you for your question. Various activities in the Community result in the different badges one can receive. The more you participate, the greater number of badges you will see in your profile. Feel free to reference the participation miles section of the About page for a deeper dive into miles calculation.
Thanks! Let us know if you have any quesitons.
Hi @melstone89 and @BelfryBat thanks for your question and comment. You receive 500 miles for completing a profile (travel interests, destination, five places on the map, travel companion, and travel style) not immediately upon registration. Miles for previous days activity will automatically load in your profile if you would like to keep track.
Miles for community participation are posted to your arrival card at the first of every month, unless the first of the month is on a weekend, the miles will then be posted to your card the first Tuesday of the month.
