Does anyone know how many posts you need to go from Wannabe Geek to Geek to Master Geek to Ultimate Geek etc (and how you move up in stars as well) ?

Just checked Mauricio's post count - he's an Uber Geek at 16k posts. Eek Surprised

Mauricio is an Alpha geek, not Uber.  I don't know what the threshold is for that; possibly it is the user with the highest post count.

Uber kicks in at 1000 posts Smile

There's only one Alpha Geek in the crowd. You know who...

The other levels are:

1 - 10 posts: Wannabe Geek
10 - 50 posts: Geek
50 - 250 posts: Master Geek
250 - 1000 posts: Ultimate Geek
more than 1000 posts: Uber Geek

Thanks for this info. Great, I'm only a couple posts away from Master Geek.

Do I get a glass trophy to commemorate this achievement? Wink

I think you mean Ultimate Geek (he says pushing his own count up by 1). Should at least be worth a t-shirt...

Perhaps ultimate should be rated above uber given the vernacular?

And I've managed to become an Ultimate Geek in the last few posts I've just done.

Only another 750 odd posts to become Uber. Eek! Surprised
