Default Whats the deal with the Experience points?

I was looking at my profile and I noticed a section for Experience. I was just curious about what that's for. If anyone can let me me in on the secret I would greatly appreciate it, as I'm still trying to figure out all the stuff on the forum

Take a number sort of thing asking that question. Put your curser on same and you get some sort of silly comment. I think I'm at the cutting edge of no longer needing waders/boots as I could 'walk on water.'

One or two more lighted up green boxes? You're on a 'distinguished road,' I have a brilliant future. Just doesn't say at what.

Once you hit a certain level you get a candy bar of your choice.

DAMN NATION! Now you tell me. I'm holding out for a box of Snickers. One of the greatest 'on river' food groups ever devised.

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Seriously though...it seems when you reach a certain number of posts you get another green box...and if a moderator gives you rep you get another, and I think if a whole bunch of regular shlubs like me give you rep you eventually get another at some determined number of points. I may be wrong but it's my best guess.

Btw, Fred mentioned placing your cursor over the green boxes; I just figured that out a few days ago lol

What I wanna know is if you make an arse of yourself do the boxes start to disappear?

Default Re: Whats the deal with the Experience points?

After so many experience points you gain a level. This entitles you to magic fly rods, that do amazing damage to large trout and steelhead. Also enchanted flies and walk on water spells, along with cloaks of invisibility so you can fish your favorite hole without interruption. You become like the Gandalf the Grey of fly fishermen. Or so I heard. If you're lucky you may run into the mischievous god of fly fishing Orvis watch out for his, magic reel. Its said that the sound of his reel singing can lull a fisherman into a trance. When they awake from it their fly boxes are usually empty. All legends i,ve heard anyway.
