    Hi all. So I joined the MP community a couple of days ago, and I'm loving it so far. :) I was wondering if there was a page that explained a little bit more about how the forum's user titles and "status points" work. haha. It's not a big deal, but I was just a bit curious.

    (Like what's gold member? What's silver member? What's constitutes getting active member status? What are status points for? What other achievements other than first post and 5 likes are there?)

    Thanks. :)

    Thanks! :)

    The page doesn't say what the requirements are to reach each status level or anything about what trophies are out there. Anyone know if there's a list published anywhere? Or is it just going to be a surprise every time I get a shiny new achievement? :p

    Welcome to milepoint :)

    Its all about making new posts, receiving likes and being active in the community.

    It's pretty easy to get to silver and get the ability to get free stuff in the mail.

    It's a point system and getting likes (you got 3 already just from the post I quoted ;)) is important, so is posting. Look for those achievements, keep on posting, get likes and you will be rewarded.

    As a newbie, was wondering the same. Was gonna get out my ouija board. Maybe use it inflight on Sunday while in UA Y-. That might really scare the hell outta some folks.

    The levels of activity that generate points are unpublished and non-static. We've tried to document/pin them down a few times, but each time they've shifted. Bottom line, just participate and the points will come.

    I've been here since, almost the beginning, and I have yet to figure it out. I stopped trying long ago, so if you find a fast tract to knowing the secret, I'd love to know. I am just a lowly silver, have as many likes, as points, have contributed to the forum often, but still just silver. But the value here comes from, not the status you are, but what you can learn from being a member. Enjoy your time, and you will learn many things too.

    FWIW, you need about twice the posts and 2-1/2 times the likes for gold.

    We'd tell you, but then we'd have to send uggboy over to your house to ensure compliance.


    We've never had to tell anyone under those conditions.


    Thus, it remains a great mystery. (Kind of like Platinum status and Ryan Seacrest's appeal)

    Better not figure it out or we will have to change it again :D

    Welcome to Milepoint F.A.M.! It's all based on likes and posts. Like others said, the more you contribute- and the better those contributions are- the higher you'll end up ranking :cool:

    The first rule of MP club is that you don't talk about MP club.
