    I am sure this has been answered but my search could not locate it:

    What is the requirement to attain Gold Member status on milepoint?

    Thanks

    Yes, but how many? There must be a formula to determine when you get upgraded.

    You need to accumulate 1,000 status points. You have been a member of MP for more than a year so you have exceeded the time requirement. Spend some of your spare time accumulating posts and receive likes and you will obtain Gold Status.

    How the status points are doled out may have changed since I was anointed Gold in January. There were sp's for 1000 likes, 500 posts, 2000 likes, etc.

    I can suggest that becoming a member of the MilePoint Kiva Lending Team may assist you in obtaining your goal faster. You will get a lot of likes posting there as well as in many of the OT/Social threads. Particularly if you can curry favor with the inimitable miles and smiles. He is a guru on status points accumulation.

    Your path is clear my friend. Enjoy and Good Luck in becoming Golden.

    Technically, the requirements for gold/silver are not posted anywhere and can change without notice. For now, folks are getting the golden touch after one year and 1,000 status points.

    I have been wondering the same thing but to attain Silver status. I knew that getting some likes was important, but I didn't know of the time requirement. Thank you for the info. :D

    I thought tondoleo was being humorous when he called you 'the Guru', but I now know better. Thanks for the good news. Still, this little grasshopper has much to learn from the traditional ways things are done at MP. :-D

    You should have been around last year when the first batch of silvers and golds were minted. We had 24 hour a day partying in some threads!
    Anything tondoleo says about me should be taken with a grain of salt.
    No, make that:
    Anything tondoleo says about anything should be taken with a ton of salt. :p

    Also, please note that most of my time on Milepoint consists of telling lies, spreading misunderstanding, counting backwards and other "worthwhile" pursuits. :rolleyes:

    The secret is to occasionally post AUC (actual useful content) to keep everybody thinking that maybe I know something ;)

    We know you lie about a lot of things, and we aren't fooled into believing that you know anything truthful. :)

    Ahhhhhhhh but when I go to confession the slate is cleared. And, I always ask for forgiveness from those that are lying and have not yet been absolved so I get extra credit....kind of like the MP upgrades reward program!!!;)

    I really think that miles and smiles is more than one person.

    You would have to devise a way to evenly divide all of the great rewards you receive for becoming a gold member.

    Yes, but how many people are named miles and how many are named smiles? ;)
    Answer that question correctly and I will tell you tondoleo's secret identity. ;)

    Why would I want to know anything truthful?
    Where is the fun in that? :p

    When I shop at my local natural foods store, they give me a "wisdom" discount (they are under the illusion that folks who are 60 or older have wisdom). I keep telling them I am only eligible for the wise guy discount. But hey, I'll take 5% off anytime. thumbs-up.gif

    I don't even know my secret identity. I told you miles and smiles is indeed the MilePoint Guru. Sri m&s.
