Just wondering what are the perks and benefits of earning "Top Poster" designations / titles in Lottery Post?

What are the levels of achievement that one can earn?

When you earn the levels, what can you do with them?

 

I have noticed that some members post quite a lot, like they are working towards or earning a new posting level designation / title. 

I may consider posting frequently, especially if I can earn extra perks and benefits. Type

Can't seem to find this topic in the search area.   Thanks for your input! Trying to learn about things here.Smiley

    It's not just posting a lot. Todd said it involves many criteria which is a secret. Rightly so. I think it has to do with the integrety of the posts and the contribution it will give to the other members. Plus other qualities we will never know...lol

        Cool....

        I should've answered your first question about the benefits. It's very simple. The amount of blue dots indicate not only maturity but other aspects about the prospective individual in question. The ability to prove you've been around the block feels great.

          Thanks, joker17! I never noticed the significance of the blue dots, until you pointed them out. Hopefully, going around the block is as easy as a nice walk through the park. See Ya!

          I look forward to more and more secrets revealing themselves to me.  There is certainly a lot to check out in this forum. 

          joker17, I appreciate your quick responses.  Thanks, again.

            If you are not a premium member having blue dots your benefits are the same as any other non premium member with lesser blue dots.

            If you want added benefits you become a premium member of the level you choose.

              Thanks, JAP69, for this information.  So the KEY to it ALL (?) is the PAID memberships levels. Accumulating blues dots does not mean much, if you don't have the paid membership status to go along with it.  I see.  Thank you!!!

                The blue dots are ranks like a novice a guru etc. If you put your cursor on Jap's or mine you will see we have earned elite status, that means that over time we have contributed many quality posts which are somehow deciphered by a program Todd has and ranked accordingly.

                It has nothing to do with premium features which has a link on the left hand side of this page. These features allow paid users to use tools Todd's has incorporated into this site.

                Also there are free trials associated with many of the paid features.

                Those banners like top poster are ranks designated by how many posts have been made by each individual person the more post you make the higher their rank goes. At some point when you reach a certain amount of posts equal to the people with a certain amount of post your banner will change.

                Todd can explain this better.

                Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!

                    The person "with the dots" does not benefit, other than "bragging rights".

                    YOU benefit, because you can instantly see the experience level of the person YOU are dealing with.

                      I guess it my come in the form of satisfaction that many poster have achieved some status for having contributed lots of time and energy, there are some posters like Lucky, Libra Dave and many others who  provide useful posts every day.
                       
                      There benefits my be some self recognition for posters who achieve the various ranks. After all sometimes it takes a long time to get from one rank to another. It also lets everyone viewing a posters names how well they are posting so to speak.
                       
                      Lots of Internet subscription boards have such features for it's members they might achieve stars for contributing posts or the might have tiles that say new poster, regular poster, great poster, super poster etc.

                              four4me, you make very valid points! I agree with you.

                              Acknowledgement and recognition are important and requires CELEBRATION from One's self (the key is SELF recognition) and others.

                               

                              You, Lucky, Libra Dave, LAVERNE MALONEY, and others give from your/their PASSION to make a difference for all of us!  People like you/them make a HUGE positive difference and are APPRECIATED!!!! StarStarStarStarStarPartyThank you!!!!!!!!!!!
