Mind you, 'User --> Member', it does not mean they dont know a thing. It actually acknowledged them as "True Linux Users" however the system is very competitive and only "WELL" deserving users will reach "Advanced User" status, Most will just reamain as "User" which is very true in reality.

Vast number of posts does not mean knowledge

unSpawn 15,102 May 01==96 92=93 1.692 Advanced User
A true genius!.
The others who are ranked as "Users" are also not that bad!

and you:

You are among the top.
Surely you should not just dismiss my system

I challenge you, show an Adv User, an Expert and a Guru who doest deserve it and I will surely Abandon my system;

I remind you of the 'STRICT' Criteria once again:
Formula is (posts/(thanks+1))/months_as_member
If your score is greater or equal to 8, --> Learner
If your score is less than 8, --> User
If your score is less than 2, --> Advanced User
If your score is less than 1, --> Expert
If your score is less than 0.8, --> Guru
Then all users whose accounts are 3 months old or less --> LQ Newbie

I can't be bothered looking, but I'll show you 1 L"Learner", 2 "Users" and 1 "Advanced User" who don't deserve it, and that's at least as bad as a mis-labeled guru.

Code:
acid_kewpie 32,250 Jun 01==95  89=90  3.772  User
trickykid   23,957 Jan 01==100   6=7 34.224  Learner
XavierP     16,863 Nov 02==78  35=36  6.005  User
unSpawn     15,102 May 01==96  92=93  1.692  Advanced User

you are an Advanced Users

@billymayday

So you mean unSpawn doesnt deserve to be an Advanced User? and you want to mean XavierP and acid_kewpie dont deserve to be "True Linux Users", they themselves Im sure will be comfortable this way, than to be called "GURUS2 when thay know they are not. In some of their posts, thay have actually mentioned that they 'DIDN'T like to be called gurus'

OK, I've more or less stopped laughing now. Any system that rates me as more learned in the mysteries of Linux than acid_kewpie, trickykid, XavierP, and unSpawn, is seriously flawed.

Of course I am, but I'm far too modest to admit it.

Yeah, you're right. I should be classed as a "super-genius".

You seem to be unable to differentiate between knowledge and titles.

No I don't think unSpawn deserves to be rated as advanced. I've seen an awful lot of his posts, and he knows his stuff better than you or I ever will.

Like I explained, It doesnt mean a User/Advanced User is not knowledgeable, the system is only trying to make it 'difficult' to reach levels of expert and guru. I could easily lower the scales, but that will defeat the whole fun of it.
(This system is similar to RH certifications, having RHCT does not mean you are less of an expert, actually you will be well better)
So fitting into being a User, you are well better, Advanced User; you are a genius.
unSpawn is being acknowledged as genius here which is true. If you had wanted him to be guru, im afraid its only the strictness of the criteria that prevents it.
HOWEVER, if you guys would want me to consider lowering the scales, we can try that!!

I don't think anyone is that interested in the concept to try any version from what I've read.
