    Automatic Forum Experience Levels?


    Hi y'all. When I signed up a while back, I chose 'Competent Performer' or some such thing for my level. I see that it has changed to Expert, but I don't recall doing that. Is there some sort of automated 'upgrade' based on # of posts or points given or something? I guess I'm a modest sort in some ways, and am not sure I deserve the ranking. I hold myself up against the likes of Allen Browne, Albert Kallal, Dev Ashish, etc. If I'm an expert, they must be gods (with a small g so as not to offend the righteous). So how did my expertise level change and why?
    - "doesn't work" is no help. Post err msgs and where.
    - Use code tags for code/sql. Implement changes in copies of your database.

    I'm pretty sure it is as you suspect, an automatic thing done by the forum software. You can put anything you want there.

    I hope to graduate from "Competent Performer" and am insanely jealous of the "Splendid One".
    Thanks, Paul

    pbaldy; look at you with 14,500+ posts! Compare to my paltry amount and one quickly realizes you must have reached "Omnipotent" status.

    Lots-of-posts <> knows-a-lot.

    Of the 3 you mentioned, I've met Allen and Albert (at an MVP event). I have a similar feeling you do; they're the small-g gods, I'm just a guy who enjoys helping people. I'm not in their league, likely never will be.

    Thanks, but it would only go to my head. I am actually quite proud of my status as "Competent Performer". I've already exceeded expectations.
