    Begin participating on Yahoo! Answers → One Time: 100

    Ask a question → -5

    Choose a best answer for your question → 3

    No Best Answer was selected by voters on your question Points Returned → 5

    Answer a question → 2

    Deleting an answer → -2

    Log in to Yahoo! Answers → 1

    Vote for a best answer → 1

    Vote for No best answer → 0

    Have your answer selected as the best answer → 10

    Receive a "thumbs-up" rating on a best answer that you wrote (up to 50 thumbs-up are counted) → 1 per "thumbs-up"

    For people over level 4, they are able to answer and ask unlimited number of questions. In Level 5, people are able to vote 20 answers less than people in Level 6 and 7.

    As you gain up a level from 1 to another, you are able to ask 5 extra questions, vote 20 extra answers and answer 20 extra questions. You are able to make 10 extra comments.

    For rest of the levels except Level 1, people are able to star 100 times.

    Level 2 → 250-999 pts

    Level 3 → 1000-2499 pts

    Level 4 → 2500-4999 pts

    Level 5 → 5000-9999 pts

    Level 6 → 10000-24999 pts

    Level 7 → 25000+ pts

  • Level 2 starts at 250 points - you have 126 so you are just over halfway there!

    All levels can pick a best answer to questions they ask and can vote for best answer on others' undecided questions. Once you hit level 2 & get the ability to 'rate', the only difference in the levels is the daily limits on questions, answers, comments, votes, etc.

    Levels 2 and up can 'rate' the answers of other Y!A users. Rating = giving Thumbs Up & Down to express your opinion of other peoples' answers. No points are involved (unless a best answer has TUs, then they get 1 point for each TU up to 50) in rating, and thumbs do not determine the Best Answer selection.


    answer your limit of questions each day (2 points each)

    get an answer selected as best answer (10 points each)

    pick a best answer for your question (3 points)

    vote your limit of unresolved questions each day (1 point each)

    you also get a point a day for signing in

    each question costs 5 points, so ask sparingly

    You answer lots of questions! You get 1 point just for visiting yahoo answers and 2 for answering a question. 10 points if you get Best Answer. You need 250 points to get to level 2, 1000 points to get to level 3, 2500 points to get to level 4, 5000 points to level 5, 10000 points to get to level 6, and 25000 points to get to level 7! 7 is the highest level. You'll learn all of this (and more) when you get to level 2. Yahoo sends you an e-mail that has a chart of all the levels. So just answer questions and don't ask to many! It costs you 5 points to ask a question. I hope I helped!
