    Well as I understand now that we need to have 2000 posts for 'Expert' badge,

    I observed the members badges and deduced below posts numbers,

    Member, 1-99 posts
    Active Member, 100-499 posts
    Well-Known Member, 500-? posts
    ? , ?
    Expert, 2000-? posts
    ? , ?​

    I searched the forum for the complete list but could not fine one ,,+Well-Known+Member,+Expert,

    I did find a list of Trophies,

    So I request to point me the link of "Member..Expert..?" list, so that we members can be aware of it.

    Thanks Mashiane for the screenshot. But, I require the "posts list" for different badges available.

    Say I have "Active Member" badge and 300+ posts, now I know that I need 2000 posts for "Expert" badge.
    I am looking for the list like the Trophies, for Badges,
    1-99 posts = Member badge
    100-499 posts = Active Member badge
    and so on.​

    I am not looking for the member names, but the badges list.

    Only Erel has this trophy as of now.

    The Trophies i own:


    Don´t know whether there is a List of EXPERT, well known member and so on...

    I add that perhaps not even a list is needed. Because it reveals rather that they are active in the forum, but being experts can relate to something else.

    Some very capable may not participate in the forum because they have no time or desire.

    I already found the Trophies list, see #1, but could not find similar 'Badges' list. Maybe Erel can guide here.

    This is the point of my begin of search for the Badges list.

    When Brandsum was nominated for 'Expert' badge, which he declined politely, it was revealed that one needs to have 2000 posts to get it.
    Previously I though only the members who knew java and can make wrapper for it can be 'Experts'. Now it dawned on me that one day I too can get the badge,

    So I checked my post which is around 300+. Now it is obvious that there must be more badges inbetween 300 and 2000. I started looking for them.
    Check post #1, I found 'Well-Known Member' badge in between but can not find others as of now.

    I will update post #1 as and when I find them.

    That's icing on your cake as you are an 'Expert' :)
    I am looking up to be an 'Expert' like you in future. But you will be 'Zen' by that time :D

    As for earning, I am 'Zen' in Xbase++ and I pay my B4A subscription from earning from Xbase++ apps.
    But I want to pay from Android apps and I have to be an 'Expert' first.

    Ahh.. I am not giving credit to a badge but want to have the knowledge of the badges and how they are given and on what basis.

    You see, I am member of another forum where they used to give 'stars' based on 'when one joined the forum'. So no matter how many, I give solutions or put queries, my stars were always less than member who joined 6 years ago, even he/she is inactive. Now they have removed this 'star' badges from all.

    But here I can get what I want, if I work hard :)

    I'm not an expert, I just participated in the forum giving some contributions.

    But everyone's contribution, together with the contributions of others who have different IT experiences, makes us all experts in some way

    That's your humbleness and I bow to you.

    I have seen and used many of your contributions in test apps and I appreciate your knowledge of Java and B4X. I too aspire to have good knowledge of the same but I need to work hard like most of great members here.

    Actually I get much less time out from my day work in Xbase++, so I am still struggling in B4X.

    To be or not to be (an expert)..that's the question!
    As you have discovered, here Expert means 2000 posts published. Anyone could achieve this "status" just posting nonsense (even 2000 posts of a simple countdown, but in that case I guess he/she will be banned..ehehe)
    Reaching an expert status (note the lowercase), i.e. putting together enough experience, knowledge and a lot of errors, takes time but it's more about how you feel and how others look at you. Like a leader. You don't claim to be a leader, others treat you that way and that makes you a real leader.

    Just my 2c

    Next time spend at least 2$!

    (This is one of my "standard" posts which allows me to be a Super-Expert! :p)

    Agree fully and I do not want and have never posted 'nonsense', check my posts.

    Somehow the real reason of my 'badges list' is lost in defining the 'Expert' by all.
    Oh, come on. Did I say give me so and so badge ?
    Can't, as a member, I have prior knowledge of the 'badges list' ?

    It looks like it is a sacred list known to few privilege here. That's fine.
    As I promised, I will update my #1 post as and when I find it :)

    At least this does not count as 'nonsense' ;)

    BTW 'nonsense' and 'sense' message varies from member to member, I have noted here :)

    Eheh, sorry about the use of word "nonsense". What I meant was something not relating to tech expertise. When we post a joke, an image about general topic or anything not strictly related to B4x we increment our general count toward the Expert badge. Even replying "sorry I can't help you" or "start another thread" upper your posts count.
    That's why we don't place great importance to that badge.

    Most of the posts in this thread can be seen as "nonsense" in relation to the "expert" (sure, mine too) and just lower the distance to be an "expert" :D

    You should start a new thread
    Forum search is working
    etc. ​
