    Just curious whether there are other souls like me, who have been stuck at the Silver level for (what seems like) a long time. Looks like the requirements to go from Silver to Gold are quite steep, and that pesky points total refuses to go up in spite of my "likes" counter going up. Looks like the next "hit" will probably be at the 1000 "likes" level.

    Not ranting, just curious. :)

    PS: Not a newbie, but couldnt figure out a better forum to post this in (Community, maybe?).

    Keep posting, keep getting liked, and you will move up the ladder - it is all about contribution ... more or less :D ;)

    You should get more status points at 500 posts and at 1000 likes. Then you'll probably only need another 500 posts or 1000 likes to hit 1000 and sweet, sweet gold! And yes, I have been at silver for most of the last year and despite making it to 950 status I still have a ways to go to get to 1000. I think it would be nice if you got points for liking others' posts. :rolleyes:

    Listen to the wise cat and try not to obsess about status on MP.

    It does for me. :) Platinum seems (assuming anyone ever reaches it) like a bit too much effort for pretty limited reward.

    Given no one is Platinum (that I know of) yet, how can we say limited reward :) We do not know officially what the reward may be? An MP-Armani suit, MP-Ferrari? Anything is possible :)

    From clicking other profiles, I'd say gold is at 1000 points. So you're almost there (closer than me at least :D)

    I'm having trouble claiming my benefits through the award store. How many points are required?

    You won't be able to claim anything until you reach Silver. As you only have 2 post and 0 likes so far, you've got a ways to go :)

    he is a prem member; so he should get the UA/Hyatt/National/etc from the award store.

    Exactly. If 19,950 points is not enough I am unlikely to get there anytime in the foreseeable future. Armani suit? Meh, I get mine made in Hong Kong. Ferrari? I prefer . . .

    i think that's called being a prem member. That's the annual fee.
