Windows 7: Whats happening with these icons by our names?

Whats happening with these icons by our names?

Hey Guys,

I saw there was something recently added to the forums with these icons by our names. Mine says Poweruser, and I seen others that said Skilled and so on.. I think this is a nice addon for the site, can we get a breakdown of what all of them are and how you become a certain status?

Thanks in advance :)

It's a rep based system the same as we run over at

Skilled = 100 Rep
Power User = 400 Rep
Seven Pro = 600 Rep
Seven Guru = 1000 Rep

I managed to watch some of your videos today (youtube lags for me normaly) and I must say what a great job

Windows 7 Build 7100

Ahh nice!! I'm glad there was a seven forums to come and chat to others about Win7. This was the first one I found so I made a few videos.Thanks, it took me awhile to get it configured. So I ended up using the bluetooth headset from my blackberry to capture the voice. Thanks to Erickson for inventing it :)

This is referring to the Vistax64 forum, but I've noticed a few 'Power Users' with very low post and rep counts ie PC 20 Rep 2. If you had a high count before, changed your name, then does that reset your post/rep whilst retaining your 'status'?

It didn't seem like big enough of a deal to ask before, but here we are :)
