4.3 Stars Trinkets Spinners and points
You accumulate points for frequently using BroadBandReports.com ... you cannot see your current points but the system stores them as "levels".
As points are accumulated you will gain levels, up to 8, which you can see by using the "members" link in the left menu, and "capabilities".
Points are awarded for:

1 gold is shown if you pass 60k points
1 green is shown if you pass 120k points.
A single green star is the end of the star system, except for:

To qualify for one of the spinners shown above, you must first join that team and then go to Members/Extra and fill out Why Did I Join. You should have your team spinner by the next day.
If you go to the "Members" link in the menu, you will see "Capabilities" as an option. Clicking on that choice will show you your status in the levels/points progression.
You will not see anything higher than level 8 here, but when your info is viewed by others using the "I see people" feature, the level may be higher depending upon your site activity.
