    Sorry in advance if this is a question that is hidden somewhere in the wiki or has already been answered on another thread.
    On the profile page of each member, it says whether they are new, experienced, etc.. How do you get these titles? What is the criteria for being advanced to well-known, or experienced or whatever rank?
    If there is already a thread or wiki page that lists this, it would be great if you could provide a link.

    Postcount. I do not know what the exact thresholds are.

    Hmmm... Interesting way..
    So, if I spam the forums with junk posts, will I level up?

    I'll write up an article and run it through with Josh and upload it, I was wondering that too.

    To be honest, I'd prefer it to be based on likes divided by postcount, because that would promote thoughtful relevant and helpful posts.

    False actually.

    Okay here's how it works. There is math involved.

    First know it doesn't matter what you are. The calculations are off since we stopped syncing playtime to the forums.

    Basically you have to have 100 posts for the system to think to rank you up. You have to have at least 10 likes, however, on any number of those posts. And then you get points. So you get like 2 points for each like you receive. And a half point for each post you make. If you make it in off-topic, you get -1 points. A successful thread with more than like 500 views or something will get you more points. If you send messages to other people you get points. If you get quoted you get points.

    If you get reported and a post modified or deleted you lose points. If you get warned or banned you pretty much lose all your points.

    "Experienced Member" is as high as you can go right now. Anyone with "Active Member" are veterans from before we switched forums. Congrats to them.
