Anyhow, no big deal -- it's all artificial and a bit of mystery. So... greetings again, fellow silvers!

figures they would change the goalpost for getting gold when I am at 975 points! 🙂 Congratulations btw.

Congrats bigx0 for your achievement! I'm curious, what posts and/or likes needed for me, an active member, to be moved up to the next level? just curious

Congrats, and now onward and upward to the heretofore unbeknownst Platinum status.

Thank you very much. I guess it takes a little time for the status to show!

This is probably going to be the only status achievement I reach this year -- not traveling :(. Thanks all for supporting the goal!

Actually thought you were pretty cool as silver, and who cares about color, anyways? 🙂

Thank you and yes, good point.

Looks like the goalposts weren't moved after all -- I just wasn't patient enough. Now let's get working on getting you 25 more points. Have a like.

I think you need a certain amount of time as well as just the number of points. I thought it was 1 month but looks like it's more. Maybe 3. At least the time part comes eventually without having to work at it.

In the "Seems like this is how it works" department: Gold was awarded exactly one hour after post number 1000 (not 1001). Maybe there's an hour delay in case the post is deleted. When I saw the immediate 100 point bump but no corresponding status change I figured the goalpost had moved, as [USER=341]@Quasiconvexity[/USER] so eloquently stated.

Your knowledge and helpfulness may be just as important as your BIS time, so just keep doing what you've been doing while your butt rests from traveling and you may still be the first Plat on MP (just don't let the powers-that-be on MP know that you're resting this year after all that travel) and now you'll have more time to check in here too. 😉

There's a secret sauce element where the numbers get adjusted automatically by the "computers", not us human beings. But, you're well on your way. I gave you one more like for your congrats to edge you closer. 😉

I don't have much to say, but you can usually find me saying it here.

The hour delay has been a part of the system here since the beginning.

Relax .............. smile.............. enjoy................... and be grateful 🙂

Well, [USER=5928]@bigx0[/USER], you used to be a Senior at the "Middle School" and now you are just a Freshman at the "High School".... Geee... 🙂

Still, congrats on graduating from MS...

True, though if Platinum is College there is only a High School in this town.

Still, congrats on graduating from MS...

Thanks. When and where is the prom?

Makes sense. I never noticed. It's not every day that I graduate!
