thanks for reply. Yes, fifth one from the list.
8#VIP (oDesk can also assign this rank)
Zamir, the ranks are simply based on how many posts you have posted in the community forum.
The higher the rank, the more likely it is that the Forum participant suffers from biochemical neural forum addiction.
Exactly. Anyone can post any possible rubbish and get to a Community Guru within a day or two. So what? I mean, seriously, so what? Nothing. You just spend some time here, post here and there, contribue (that's the only value), but those numbers/ranks have no real-world value. You won't benefit from it in any way. If you simply like being kudoed and need your self-esteem (and rank) to rise over time, then go for it
EDIT: Unless you absolutely want to be a VIP (Upwork-assigned). Which is again just a title. You're still the same old you when you log out.
And if you get over 600 kudos they ban you for a month. That's what happened to me.
So I can just spam all threads here and achieve the "Community Leader" status? Woooo!
I can't help but think that one of these days those titles will be replaced by something ridiculous. They tend to do that now.
