    I can't imagine I'm the first to post this so feel free to delete if it's somewhere else but I'd feel like I was not doing milepoint justice if I didn't start a post asking how to rapidly get gold or plat status with Milepoint? Any ideas? Lots of posts and likes? Do we all do it the hard way even though this forum exists to help people do it the easy way with every other business venture? haha.

    It should definitely be relatively difficult - it's not fun if we don't have to work hard for it.

    From others' preliminary observation, 100 status points get you silver. Nobody (or not that I have seen) anyone getting the gold yet.

    I believe you'll get status for "likes" but I have no proof. I don't work here.

    Silly me... I thought that this site was all about frequent flyers helping each. [​IMG]

    "Likes" get you status points, which will get you status. At least that's what I know so far.
    LOL there is an entire thread soliciting others for "likes". I guess we are addicted to status everywhere - FFP, car rental, FedEx, "Original Member", MP... um what else? [​IMG]

    I agree. MP should get rid of the likes. I can sit here all day and 'like' every thread. [​IMG]

    If MP is going to use status post, it should be for created topics to limited forums. I don't know how Randy will police it, but it's a start. Otherwise, do away with the current system.

    Do my likes get 150% bonus when I hit whatever status? Does it reset the clock every Jan? Is there a limit of likes I can get each year?
    This must be what Charlie Sheen is talking about... functional addicts.

    JALPak made gold at 1000 points, but I suspect that took the House of Miles by surprise, and they promptly adjusted the algorithm. Several people have hit over 1000 since then and haven't gotten gold.

    I think we're being graded on a curve, the highest one pulls the curve up and raises the bar. [​IMG]

    Just happened at the sweep a couple minutes ago. I hit 1500 likes, I'm at 1408 posts. Is there a bonus for the combination of 1500P+1500L?

    There wasn't one for me. Next level is 2000P or 2000L

    Shouldn't we all send a petition to JALPak (and those with high post counts) to slow it down while we catch up?

    MP is playing me like a casino plays its "clients," other than the lack of a cocktail waitress coming around every few minutes and I'm thoroughly enjoying it, despite the missing waitress.[​IMG]

    Contests, I'm hoping for silver soon :)

    Once you're silver the cocktail waitress will show up. She's a grumpy retired UA FA.

    Likes are a nice way to avoid "+1" and "me too" clutter ... and I think status is a great idea to gauge a user's contributions to the community. If it's really going to reflect that, though, the algorithm probably shouldn't take into account Off Topic likes. Doesn't matter to me as long as useful information keeps rollin'.

    I'm sure they'll soon institute changes to the algorithm, weighting likes to where and how the posts appeared.
    They have room for huge complexity and subtlety in the system.

    Nice. Should be fun and interesting to watch (or try to figure out) the changes as they happen.

    Are there already secret forums in place for those who have hit Silver? Just wondering what I can look forward to! [​IMG]
