    Does anyone know how you get the different designations like newbe, pro, users and other titles when you answer questions on this forums. Does it depend on the number of answers you make. Thanks

    A Tomtom Pro is someone who attended their training schools, while Experts require at least a minimum Bachelor's degree in Navigational Sciences.

    I'm kidding of course. Users get points from other members for particularly good or accurate posts. Kind of like getting a Star when you were in school for doing well on a test.

    doctormstein1,

    I think it is earned as you gain reputation points from other users by clicking on this icon in the lower right of a persons post.

    The designations are based on the number of posts the user has made.

    Rep points (which used to show) are given by one member to another for a perceived valuable post. The number of rep points one user can give another are also based upon the number of posts the giver of the rep points has.

    For example, if I give somebody some rep points, he (or she) will receive more points than if someone who has 100 posts awards points.

    The green dots reflect the number of points a user has though I don't know and have never worried about how many points = 1 dot.
