Could anyone tell me or point me in the right direction of how the star/ranking system thing works? Is it a statistic thing (put up so many posts, and get promoted a star), do moderators decide, or perhaps it's a membership thing?
Just curious as I'm nosey,

Mostly its numbers of posts. Guru status is sometimes conferred by the site owner on people who are both knowledgeable and helpful.

Then I'm in the presence of greatness... I'm not even an 'enthusiast' yet apparently, haha.
