    Change Experience Level on Profile

    OK, this may seem like a trivial issue. When I first joined the forum in 2012 I certainly was a Novice. But, six years later I have gained a lot of experience. Does anyone know how to change the experience designation on a user profile?

    Thanks

    Default is based on number of posts I believe.

    Thanks, Paul. I haven't done a lot of posting so that probably explains it.

    True, as I found out and posted about a while back when I was asking about how my VIP label came about.
    Afterwards and based on someone else's activity as an example, it became apparent that all you had to do was ask a zillion questions to become a VIP, which is why I found another meaning for that moniker. Kinda made it less important/impressive to me. I'd rather have been appointed by my peers.

    I agree with both the OP & Micron
    Although I joined in 2014, I only started posting here regularly in Dec 2017.
    I also decided my experience level was inappropriate and changed it (to something essentially meaningless).
    I've no idea what the automatic level would assign me to now as I haven't tried it

    I'm surprised to hear that VIP status appears to be awarded on the number of posts here.
    That essentially means someone can post poor advice regularly and become a VIP.
    I can think of a specific example of this - someone not involved in this thread ....

    On another forum, where I am a VIP/moderator, both of these statuses(?) / stati(?) ARE awarded by peers which I feel is a much better system

    Huh. Never paid too much attention to that, but it had me as VIP, so I changed it to something more appropriate...
    Edit: Which I see did not work.

    LOL. Brilliant answer from davegri .

    So, if its automatic, I'm guessing VIP status is awarded at around 1000 posts.
    Perhaps a site admin will be able to enlighten us....?

    Should work, but I think I can change it if you tell me what you want.

    Hmm, apparently the user manager will let me see all your settings but not change them. I'll ask the admins.

    As you may have noticed, I changed mine. Maybe your attempt exceeded the allowable character limit.

    As you can see, so did I though for different reasons.

    I really wanted Virtually Inert Procrastinator since the 2 last words made a great pair. Alas, it was too long.

    Aha! I go it to work! Didn't realize there was a "Save Changes" button scrolled off the screen at the bottom.
