According to the different contributions, we define a variety of roles in the server, such as ambassadors, watchmen, big brains, phanatic, etc., only when a user performs a specific behavior can he obtain the corresponding identity. The purpose of this is to better distinguish users who contribute differently and show their identities to the entire community
