    Is there a way to tell the member's MP status level (i.e. regular, silver, gold, etc)?

    It's displaying status points anyway. Just no translation of what the points mean I guess.

    Click the status point number, and if the member hasn't blocked that in their profile, you can see where all the points come from.

    Thanks for the tip! I wondered how I got that extra little five points today. It was because someone like a photo post.

    Right now I'm focused on exploring the site. There's hidden gems, like the quick forum navigation button on the blue bars that make it easy to move around.

    roll your mouse all over and look for unexpected links and functions. I like the blue dot in front of forum listings, which takes you to the last unread post.

    Thanks for the tip! This totally reminds me of all the video game achievements/trophies. I like that it's easy to see how the points were earned.

    Maybe there's a way to make the Status Points number show that it's clickable. I wouldn't have known to click it without your post!

    Roll your mouse all over this site. There are lots of unexpected clickable things to uncover.

    I think the best place for this will be some sort of Avatar overlay, to indicate Silver, Gold, platinum, etc, then the title under the username could be used for other stuff, like Original Member, custom titles.

    Avatar overlays get messy from a graphic standpoint. What would be better would be to have two lines below the avatar. One for any official titles, and then another for status. I could also see status replacing status points, for appearances making it that the status being the displayed item beside a post rather than exactly how many points a member has earned. While in the full profile you would be able to see how many points somebody would have, it is not in your face and can appear friendlier to those just joining.

    I thought I had joined up early enough to be an original member :(
    Is this a glitch or was I mistaken? Can it be rectified?

    Once you get to 25 Status Points you will be upgraded to original member. And then somewhere around 100 points is Silver.

    That is all any of us can really do. The key to the system here is to post useful information that people like, and then getting your post liked to increase your likes which counts a significant portion toward points and status.
