Who in Cafe mom decides who (members) know about a specific subject?

I see some members having 1000+ credits, super high levels and graduated to Seniors giving the worst advice....and some who just started or may have a few credits/levels/etc, give the best advice...I just wandering...

  • It is all on number of questions answered, number of questions asked, number of bumps, votes up, having questions asked bumped, having answers voted up etc. It isn't anyone person on CM....its all the credits that everyone gets that get them advanced.

  • It all depends on how active they are in this section. No one decides who knows the most, they just earn the credits by answering, bumping, & voting up.
    The people who are at low levels are either just starting out in Answers, or aren't that active.

  • Yep, what the PP said. So I guess I really don't need to answer this and say the same thing.

  • Just ignore the negative nellies. There are fun places all over CM where they don't hang out. Once you find a spot that fits you'll love it.

  • You may think it's horrible advise but otehrs may think it's great. That's what the whole bump and vote ups are for.
