|What is Level 1 and 2, and how do I get there?|
|The levels first came about when we set up a couple of "Password Early Release" forums for good members to get the passwords early for freerolls. Since that time the benefits have expanded out a little, with these members also getting further access and abilities.
Refering to 'Level 1' members has become the standard phrase that members now use, and it is an indication that the member has proven themself to be a good Surfers Poker member.
You can only really get out of level zero if you are a good quality active member. Things like making consistent good quality posts, and starting interesting threads will really help your cause.
Have a read of this post for some more details on the levels and how to get there :- Levels 1 and 2
