    I know there's probably a better thread for this (and it is TOTALLY MEANT IN A HUMOROUS WAY!), but here goes...

    I'm looking to go on a Milepoint run in the next few days to try to get to Silver/Gold status. Does anyone know if there are any good 'tricks' out there to maximize my MPpoints value?

    You'll get Silver at 3 months, so you are only a couple days away.
    For Gold you will have to wait until you have been on Milepoint for six months, and you will need 1000 status points (numbers are always subject to change, of course)

    I've "heard" rumors that being a flag flying member-of-good-standing to the milepoint Kiva Lending Team probably is looked favorably upon, but i've never been able to substantiate what i "heard".

    Many lounges will help you. If anything your post count will climb and in many cases, likes with it.

    Kiva is an excellent way to get posts/likes and do good at the same time as Randy pointed out.

    The "automatic" silver is 3months time on site and 100 SP. Gold at 1000 and 6 months.

    But as Randy said, some activity has been known to make limits fail. So you never know. If you read the status page on the help section the site reserves right to do what they wish with status. You may find it comes unexpectedly one morning.

    And it even shows that you are Silver now.

    Now you can go for the Gold.

    Here's an interesting idea... post topics that are thread-worthy. ;) Those are the posts that really count. :cool:

    Wait, you mean I can't just post fun yet nonsensical replies to redtailshark's amazingly positive Delta reviews? ;)

    You are half way there! You have 525 status points, and Gold status is awarded at 1000!

    If you really wanted to do a MilePoint MR, you should have joined in the PWP thread to win Randy's seat on the OneWorld MegaDo (http://milepoint.com/forums/threads...e-oneworld-megado-december-to-remember.23280/). You could easily have racked up enough posts there to get you the 1000 SP. For my part, I'd prefer to post useful posts (or MegaHaikus!) than achieve Spam Status. :rolleyes:

    Every post that Kiva members make in the Kiva threads, don't you mean? Many of my posts outside of Kiva threads have been hospitalized for acute depression for the lack of attention they have received. :( ;)

    Yes, on the Kiva threads (and often outside), come on over to Kiva and feel the love! :)

    Fortunately you have more than enough likes and status points to achieve Gold in April..........
    And congrats on Silver.

    This is true. I stumbled in there yesterday after joining Kiva and received a few likes. It made me feel uncomfortable.
