rePost re-link login?
Is it possible to re-link the AWS account and retain the original re:Post profile? I have oAuth'ed against a root account, and for security purposes, I created a brand new IAM user without any permissions, except for the ones needed to auth. But when I login user that user, re:Post auth service thinks I am a new user. How does it detect the user? I thought it was AWS Account ID, since that is what the sign in screen says "Login with your AWS Account". But it seems to use something else. How do I login with the same AWS Account ID, just using an IAM user instead of the root user login? Thanks.
Log in to My user in AWS re:Post
Hello, I'm trying to be an active member of the AWS re:Post Community to help my peers when I have time. However, for some reason, I can't log in to my user multiple times. So every time I want to answer a question, I need to re-create my user which is a bit annoying. I'm using AWS SSO to log into my AWS Accounts so am guessing that my re:Post user disappears when my AWS IAM Role credentials get rotated. Is there a way around this issue, or have I made some mistake creating my re:Post user? Thank you!
What are the re:Post community tiers' features and requirements?
[FAQs](https://repost.aws/faq) mention that there are 6 community tiers, which are also present on the My Dashboard page. What are the point requirements for each tier? What features are unlocked when one reaches a new tier? StackOverflow, for example, [lists](https://stackoverflow.com/help/privileges) the privileges gained with increased reputation. I believe revealing the rewards motivates to take action.

Notifications on Comments Answers on Email | re:post Features
Hi I am Supporting Questions in the Community, I answered 30+ Questions but I do not find some missing features, 1. When I answer Question, If the Questioner comments or asks something or someone answers the same questions, I am not getting an Email notification but only if the questioner accepts the Answer - IS this the right behavior of the repost, or does you have to do something on it? 2. From FAQ I found that AWS Expert will review your answer to get more points --> but what would be the timeline for the AWS Expert to review it? 3. IF I answer a question and the Owner of the question is not able to respond so what happens? AWS Team will review it? what would be the expected timelines for this review it? 4. Attachments are missing here --> Do you have any roadmap for this ? 5. For Example i have logged in from **ABC** AWS account created profile and answered some questions got badges etc later if i am logged in as **XYZ** account now whats happing re:post recognize as a new user but with the same Email lost all history -- Is this the correct behavior or you need work on this? Please let me know if you have any questions, Thanks GK

Exam Revoked After PASSING - Bad Experience with PSI Online (AWS Solution Architect Associate Exam)
I want to report an extremely bad experience giving the AWS Solution Architect Associate (SAA-C02) exam on 01/22/2022. Apologies if this is not the right place to post this experience as I did not find any other forum to post exam-related experiences. I appeared for AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate (CONFIRMATION NUMBER: G81923108) on 01/22/2022. I was able to start the exam after 30 minutes of struggle in getting the PSI software loaded and working. I followed all the guidelines and requirements of the proctor and gave my full 130-minute attention to the exam. After completing the exam, I submitted the exam for the result and was very happy to see the screen "Grade: PASS. Congratulation! You have successfully passed the AWS Certified Solutions Architect .... Within 5 business days, you will receive an email stating your exam result ......" After that, I thought that the exam is now over, as I sat for another 30 seconds and did not see any notification from Proctor or any other dialog on the PASS result screen. I took the photo of the screen from my mobile to keep it for my records so that I don't lose my result and have proof. Right then I saw a screen stating your exam is terminated due to a violation of taking photos and within 10 seconds screen closed. I called PSI and explained the matter that I completed the exam and saw the result on the screen as "PASS". Only after that, I take the picture. They opened a ticket but says you need to contact AWS for resolution. This is a very frustrating situation as after 9 days, today 02/01, and I gave exam on 01/22, there is no update on the AWS certification page and also no update on the PSI website related to the result. It's not acceptable for AWS/PSI to make candidates suffer and lose belief in the certification process.

Why are re:post suggested answers before posting a question SO BAD!!!
re:Post introduced friction to posting a question by throwing up a pop-up with very bad suggested answers to the question the customer is trying to post. Why are the suggested answers SO BAD anf NOT EVEN CLOSE to the question already entered? Is this craptactic new tool really trying to drive customers away? If so it's working!!!
re:Post prompting for separate sign-in when already signed into AWS account?
Why does re:Post require it's own separate sign-in when I'm already signed into my AWS account? Why can I just switch to it as another service once I'm already logged into the AWS console. This is a terrible FTUE and an unnecessary step that will only drive customers away from this craptastic new site.
