By being an active participant in the (ISC)² Community, you can climb the ranks of membership! Ranks represent the level of participation and contribution that a member has made to the community. As you spend more time on the forum, engage in positive discussion, and help other members, you will move up the ranks! Below is the current (ISC)² Community’s ranking structure:
In addition, the (ISC)² Community offers a variety of badges that you can earn for simply starting a discussion or posting an image, or receiving kudos or responding to discussions. Through your affiliation and involvement with (ISC)², you can also earn badges for being an (ISC)² credential holder, volunteer or participating in an (ISC)² event. Lastly, there are always “fun” badges that you can earn throughout the year, just for being a part of the (ISC)² Community! Check in often to see what badge you can earn next!
This is good stuff.
We use this methodology at my company for rating of individual contributors.
Way to go
Hack the back end, grant self 'Defender' rank, modify user rank calculation script so that only you can be ranked 'Defender.'

Sounds like a bit of fun!
How does one acheive "Defender" as a Rank? Seems to be the most interesting of Ranks to me....
How else can we know if we are winning?
Yes, people are incented by tracking things.
Somehow I think this is appropriate:
Can you explain the "milestones" or requirements for each rank including the sub-levels? Is there a document for that shared somewhere?
