(resolved) What do moderators and AWS icons mean for re:Post users?


If you respond with re:Post, the moderator may agree with you.
Also, some users have the words expert or engineer in the upper right corner of their user icons, or only the icon aws.

What do these mean?

Hi mn87,

AWS re:Post is a community-driven knowledge service (Q&A and articles) to help AWS Customers get technical guidance. re:Post community includes AWS customers, AWS partners and AWS employees. AWS employees are shown with the "aws" icon. Users with the word "Expert" are a mix of external users and AWS employees who are SMEs in their areas. "Moderators" keep the content free from spam and ensure Community Guidelines are followed. Please refer to re:Post Terms of Use and Community Guidelines for details. We recommend reaching out to AWS Support or your AWS point of contact for any production workloads related guidance.

Let me know if this answers your questions. Thank you for your interest in re:Post community.

Hello mn87, Users with word "expert" are community members that have obtained 1000 points in the community. The "Support Engineer" is reserved for AWS support engineers who help answer some of the questions in the community.

  • Hello, Monica_Lluis

    Thank you for your reply.
    I have an additional question.

    ・Can I take the answer from the expert user as an official answer from AWS?
    ・Is a user who does not have the words "expert" or "support engineer" and only has an "aws" icon a regular user who has earned a specific point of contact?
    ・What do users with the word moderator mean?
