    Keep posting in the support forums, and your bean count & title will increase.

    You should note that these aren't levels as such, it's just a fun little thing. The only difference is at 3,500 posts, you can change your user title.

    The only "levels" that exist are becoming a LoCo Moderator, Global Forum Moderator, or an Admin

    Just as there is no highest level of knowledge, members here don't intend to reach "levels", they are here to help/ask for help
    The more you post, the more problems you solve, the more you learn, and more does your level of knowledge increases.

    You increase your "level" by increasing your posts. The more you help people the faster you are gonna climb up ranks.

    Other Ubuntu users will have to salute you and eventually, when you reach the "Ubuntu Kick @ss Mastermind Superiority King" level you will be entitled to a driver and a butler...
    ( Just kidding... These ranks are just for fun)

    Was going to post but LinuxisInnovation beat me. He explains it well. There are no actual levels as such.

    To some extent, the levels do increase as you post more/become active, but there are a lot of levels that show up just for fun. I found one day that I had "spilled the beans," and it seemed rather random.

    Its a fun system, and try posting and see how the count affects you (just be careful to not become addicted to the fourms-its hard to kick).

    Best of luck,

    +1 To my post count... 2728 to go

    It's 3500 and you get your own custom title name, isn't it?

    Ahh, there's the catch. Your bean count only increases when you post in support forums. Posts in the Absoulte Beginners section and the Main Support sections are the only ones that count.

    Its funny to see someone post 5 or 6 time in a row in the bump thread trying to get their post count up. It's set up this way so that people that answer alot of questions have higher bean counts. This system, like any, isn't perfect, but it works pretty well.
