Mostly it's post count for the default title changes....

 

The Expert Elite is not an automatic upgrade though. Those are the super helpful forum gurus.

You can only get a few steps up with sheer post count. Receiving Kudos and authoring Solutions are requirements for leveling up.

In this group - you don't. Notice no "Accept as Solution" or Kudos.

 

In the product forums see the post by CADastrophe. Help others as you are able.

Post count is not the only factor. Solutions, Kudos, general knowledge and a willingness to help over time are all factored in.

I have noticed some improvements in the member categories since last year.  It used to be that someone who posted once or twice was a "contributor" even though they might have just been posting questions and responding to other's solutions.  Now it seems that its "new member", "member", and "active member"  which are much better categories without assiging roles.

 

What is odd is that the forum labels move with us from group to group.  While I might be an expert in AutoCAD, I'm not in Revit MEP.  Yet the labels travel from forum to forum.

 

Think about the label of being "Expert Elite" in the breakroom.  Wow, he's really expert in taking breaks. :-)  I'm a "Distinguished Mentor" at "break room" and "Revit MEP" as well as "AutoCAD."

I've always thought of myself as among the elite no matter where I was ;-)

I won't say there isn't some truth in that. :smileyhappy: A lot of coffee gets drunk waiting to see if the software is going to recover or crash.
