jayv. Level 4 Level 4 (1,230 points)



I was wondering if anyone could tell me how the point/level system works. How many points go with what level etc. (just curious)
Also, how can i get in touch with another user (Kappy) about a potential account issue?

Finally, how does one get access to post User Tips?



Mac Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3), 12-Core 3.06, 64GB RAM, SSD & 12TB

    Level 5 or above is required.

    I am just a user like yourself. I cannot fix any account issues you may have.


    To post User Tips you must reach a reputation level that permits it. That's outline in the above link I posted.

    See this link for more information on points:


    User Tips can be entered when you reach a certain level.  See the list.


    Points at least should be more about how much you are trusted than about any real-world benefit.  Although level 6 gains you access to another area of the forum for those who have acheived (supposedly) much respect in the forum.


    As to the account question, post it for all, as Kappy may or may not be watching and you would want all eyes on the question instead of just one person.

    Thanks for the feedback
    Just wanted to bring this profile to his attention:
    It has the exact same decription etc with a link to a password recovery website. Seems harmless but still figured i'd bring it to his attention. Maybe he'll find this post or someone can point it out in the 'Lounge'


    I'm definitely not looking to score as many points as i can as fast as possible. If i provide a solution, great, if i get some points for it, added bonus. While i recognize someone with a lot of points as obviously having the skills and know how i've seen it go to some people's heads in the past, resulting in blunt, rude and even wrong info, so points are not everything. Points are a form of recognition though so it makes me smile when i see i gained a few, means i helped some folks out

    Worry more about how the OPs (original posters) view you than some of the upper crust.  Those in the upper crust who are worthy of your respect will demonstrate that.  And you can ignore most of what I say. 

  • jayv. Level 4 Level 4 (1,230 points)

    Sorry, 'd u say something?


    Agreed, the OP's issue is the main concern.

    Totally off topic but about 4 years ago you commented on problems getting printers to communicate with a machine after upgrading to OX 10.5 and made the following comment: "If the printer supports DHCP then it would be preferable to configure the printer to use DHCP rather than trying to assign the TCP/IP parameters manually."


    Unfortunately you did not explain how a person might do that and in all my reading of forums on this problem, I have not found anyone that actually solved this issue. Did everyone just go back to OSX 10.4 under which my Savin c2525 ran great?


    I am a long-time Apple user but not a computer geek. I am also a newbie on this forum so I apologize if i have posted in an inapproriate area! Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

    For the option your printer must support it, i.e., it's supports a network connection usually via Ethernet. The settings must be incorporated in the printer's front panel. This would be explained in the printer's setup manual. I am not familiar with your printer model, but perhaps you could get help by contacting Savin's tech support.

    Small follow-up. What is the 'Conference Call' privilege? Can't click on it for more info and a search did me no good.

  • mende1 Level 10 Level 10 (90,840 points)

    Conference calls are events that hosts make in order to keep us with updated information about important things related to forums. They are often done by phone and we can ask things to hosts related to the topic

  • jayv. Level 4 Level 4 (1,230 points)

    Oh nice. When this happens is an email sent out with info?

  • mende1 Level 10 Level 10 (90,840 points)

    Now, hosts post a thread in the Lounge, a forum that you will get access to when you reach level 6, but they can be by mail if level 5 users are also invited. Note that level 5 users haven't got access to the Lounge

  • jayv. Level 4 Level 4 (1,230 points)

    Heh, lounge = level 6. It shows level 4 - Conference Calls.
    Looks like that list needs a tweak Thanks for the replies.

  • mende1 Level 10 Level 10 (90,840 points)

    You are right. It's level 4.


    Now Apple is doing some conference calls for level 6 and above users, but others should be for level 4 and above users. Also, as you have just arrived at level 4, it's difficult that Matt K has sent you an email with an invitation to a conference call
