---Okay, I'm getting tired of seeing all these threads floating around of people who want to know how to gain levels in their GameSpot profile. So here's a guide to all things levelish. If I see one of these threads again, then I'll.........do something extremely bad, but I have yet to figure what it is! Pathooiey!
P.S. - Results may vary. This guide is not accurate, this is just what I've heard all around GameSpot over the past year I've been here.
Here's a general guide of gaining levels/how to use the GameSpot Forums.Using your profile features (Collection, Wish List, Tracked Games, and Now Playing)
This may help alot if you want to gain levels. Just generally use this stuff to gain levels, and also a nice way to keep track of the things you want to keep in there.Rating and reviewing games
This helps a lot with the level, but is only optional. You can rate games right from the start, but you have to get to level 6 to review games (another alternative is going GameSpot Complete) You can also review or rate any game.Minutes Online
Spending a lot of Minutes Online is the key to successs here at Gamespot. Spending lots of Minutes Online will help with your level, as well as get you well known inside boards.Friends Page
This is where you can see your friends. These are the people who have asked to be your friend, or are the people you want to be your friend. Have fun growing friends!
P.S. - Do not go out just sending random friend requests to people you don't know. I think I speak for everyone when I say it is just plain ANNOYING.Posting
Ah, yes, posting. This does not help with your level too much, but it helps you gain friends and get popular around all kinds of exciting boards and people.Read GameSpot's daily news
This can mark some succesful points, and it also keeps you up to date. (If you are a news fanatic you can also earn a badge in your meber profile.)Watching and downloading videos
This earns lots of points, and it's great to just watch the videos over and over again.Marking succesful moderations
If you think someone is doing something wrong, just moderate it by clicking the scroll down menu on your right and click "report abuse to moderator". If a mod agrees that it is an abusive message, it can earn you a couple of points.
Your level only updates once every 24 hour rotation, so be patient. Most of the time it is in the middle of the night, or right when you log on.
Spamming to get your level up is not the way to go. This will probably result in a ban.

Well, I actually went to church today. Man, I hate to admit it, but sometimes I need a good laugh. Don't misunderstand, it wasn't the actual message I was laughing at, but the goings on during church. The thing about it is I come from a fairly sophisticated church, and this Sunday I visited a church with some of my friends. Ethnic is the only way to describe this place. Everything was so traditional and old fashioned. It seemed like every now and then they tried to appeal to the younger crowd, but man they just seemed so set in their ways. It was a good message though, so I at least got something good out of the service. Then I came home and played Sonic Adventure 2. I swear those damn chaos are a mug to raise! My friend told me if I want to have them grow up without the hassle, just leave the game on overnight but I wouldn't be able to see the evolutions or anything and stuff would be happening without my intervening. Needless to say, that won't be happening. Other than that, I've been hanging out with my friends watching the fooseball and playing Halo 2. This journal thing is pretty cool. I'm going to read my web comics now so we'll try this again later.
