Levels?

What's up with the new 'Levels' system?  It looks interesting but I can't find any info about it.

Dustin,
You should be able to join — it is open to members who have 50K points (that was the criterion when it was first formed — I suppose it may have changed), so you're qualified. Go to this link:
https://www.experts-exchange.com/groups/Experts-Exchange-Community-Experts.html

There should be a Join button in the upper right. Lots of interesting discussions there!

Right now, Level is just a new way to rank people. The reason is that it's not obvious to the EE newbies (and even some old-timers) what rank is "better" — Guru, Wizard, Sage, Genius, etc. The Level makes it clear — higher is better. But the old ranks/certifications are not going away — the Level is an add-on. :)  Regards, Joe

Starting today the level number is part of our Avatar / Picture at least in some posts. 50,000 points is level 5.
