We have no set requirements when we pick Level X, there is that you must be Level 3 but aside from that it really comes down to how we feel about users.
It does take a lot to gain Level X and although we notice a lot of users doing a great job it doesn't mean they will all get Level X, it's a tough selection process.

Must be Level 3
Must get noticed by Staff (emails and lame support tickets only annoy us)
So has anyone ever come up with applicable methods of becoming a level X?
This seems to be unanswered, and nothing more than slight suggestions appear to be given as instructions..?
If you read my reply at the top you will see a definitive answer on the matter from a staff point of view.
