What is TradingView Reputation? 

Tradingview reputation is a trust qualification metric that grades contributors on the quality of ideas posts and user engagement within the community. Tradingview’s reputation helps other users find the best contributors and the best ideas. It encourages community contribution to the Tradingview online ecosystem.

If you want your ideas to be discovered within the Tradingview community building a Tradingview reputation is very important. Tradingview reputation points are a rank based metric. So the ‘weight’ or influence of your Tradingview reputation points are relative to other contributors sharing similar ideas.

Even if your not particularly interested in becoming a top contributor to the community. Its still a good idea to be aware of what Tradingview reputation is since several features require a minimum amount of reputation points. I will discuss this in a later section below.

Reputation points can be viewed from the user’s profile. See blue box below.

Other users can use this metric to quickly gauge that users experience or track record within the community.

The higher the points, the more credible TradingView see the user as it relates to his/her value to the community. With enhanced credibility, trust is built.

How are TradingView reputation points calculated?  

User reputation is calculated based on an undisclosed formula, coded on the TradingView backend. For obvious reasons Tradingview doesn’t disclose exactly how the points are calculated. 

However, they do say that there are several factors that contribute points to your reputation. These include: 

  • Quantity of likers: number of likes 
  • Quality of likers: reputation of those users who liked your posts
  • Quantity of followers 
  • Quantity of comments

The exact formula is refined from time to time.

Why are TradingView reputation points important?

TradingView reputation points are important because they are reflective of the trust gained within the online community. The more reputation points a user has they more trustworthy their ideas are considered to be and the better those ideas rank. This hierarchy within the community is designed to strengthen the Tradingview platform as a trading resource. For beginner community members a minimum amount of reputation points also allows the use of several posting features.

In the rest of this section I’ll discuss in more detail some of these ideas why reputation points are important:

Public chat

Some community engagement features require certain amount of reputation points to use. 

One example is the requirement of at least 5 reputation points to participate in public chat. 

Editorial options and Insert URL’s or snapshots

A minimum of 10 reputation points is required for access to editorial options like font formatting and insertion of URLs or snapshot of ideas/images. 

Inserting URLs and links requires a minimum of 10 reputation points. I’ve encircled both these two features in the screenshot below:

Note: Linking to Related Ideas does not require reputation points. Feel free to share a link to an idea as it relates to your posting. 

Earn badges = enhances credibility 

Badges are three-lettered words beside a trader’s TradingView username. Badges include MOD for moderator, TOP for top author. 

A badge is earned when a user becomes a top author in at least one of the 4 leaderboards (Daily, Weekly, Monthly, and All-Time)

Publishing quality posts and feedback contributes to building a quality online trading resource.
