In our community Discord server, we have two main groups of roles you can take on as a member, earned roles and declared roles. Earned roles, as you would expect, you have to earn! You can get them in various ways as we’ll discuss shortly, but you can’t just ask for them. Declared roles on the other hand you simply assign to yourself, and are a way of showing the community what kinds of technologies you enjoy learning about, and what your programming goals are.
🔗 Declared roles
We have a Discord bot in our community server that you can issue commands to by typing a command in the
#bot-cli channel. The commands take the following form.
When you type the
/, Discord should prompt you with a little menu to choose your command and it’s available options.

Keep in mind, this will only work for declared roles. The following roles are all declared roles that you can update on your own.
🔗 Roles to show off your career goals
🔗 Roles to show off your favorite technologies
🔗 Roles to signal programming experience
- xp-new (never programmed before)
- xp-beginner (programmed but haven’t had a job)
- xp-junior (in the first year of your professional career)
- xp-mid (a professional developer for more than a year)
- xp-senior (you’ve held a “senior” title)
🔗 Roles to signal preferred pronouns
🔗 Roles for notifications
🔗 Earned Roles
There are several roles you will automatically earn through your activity within Qvault’s courses and projects. To connect your discord account to your Qvault account so that roles can be properly assigned, run the following command.
- pupil - You’ve completed at least 25 exercises
- scholar - You’ve completed at least 100 exercises
- sage - You’ve completed 400 or more exercises
If for any reason you didn’t get a role auto-assigned that you’ve earned, just drop a message in the
#bug-reports channel and the team will unlock it for you.
