You have posted more than 50 times. At 100 posts, you will be level 3, 250 - level 4, 500 - level5, 1000 - level 6, etc.

Yeah, these level 2s seem to be popping up all over. Ain't it great? All these new Mint addicts and more coming.

addict? i just wanted something stable, open, configurable and something that wouldn't BSOD me, or not "mount" every-time i got a new KB (as i type like a hammer), and for posts? sorry to say there that sometimes i don't post because imo some of these newer threads could be prevented by reading the release notes while the .iso is downloading.

I'm still friendly :P just wanted to interject my opinion

Right.

Sorry to be dismissive but I think that the level tag is worse than useless. I'd assumed that it had something to do with general experience with linux and linux mint, and not that they'd managed to amass lots of posts.

Much more valuable would be (as I suggest here viewtopic.php?f=90&t=41582) to indicate how useful a poster has been in solving problems.

I used to think that when somebody responded who was a level 6 their advice would be more valuable than a level 2, now I'm not so sure.
