    You need 250 points needed to get to Level 2. (The levels themselves are simply indicative of how much someone has contributed to the site).

    At any time, you can click on "My Q&A" (upper right). It will show you how many points you need to get to the next level (as well as some other info). Then, if you select the blue question mark next to your points, you can view the entire point system (how points awarded, how many needed for each level, and how many q&a is allowed for each of the 7 levels).

    To gain the points, try to do the following:

    - Answer as many q's as you can (limit of 20 per day at Level 1) - see above link which will tell you all the daily quotas. 2 pts each.

    - Answer well (if yours is selected as best answer, you get 10 points plus 1 point for every thumbs up you get up to a max of 50)

    - Vote on undecided questions (Go to "Vote" column). 1 pt each.

    Also, in case you didn't know, it cost 5 points to ask a question. (But, you can get 3 pts back if you select a "best answer" so it's a net loss of 2 pts).

    Good luck and have fun!

    The levels are a reflection of points earned by answering questions such as this one. The link below shows you how to earn points and how many points it takes to get to each level.

    You get to new levels by getting more points

    The idea is people get graded to show how supportive they have been in the answers community. People can advance faster if they have a higher percentage of best answers.
