I'm level 8 on my account and have been a pretty regular user since early 2014. I am anonymous, because of course, if I was to post this under my name, I would be regarded as attention-seeking and shallow for asking this. I usually post under my name, so posts that people know are by me are circulated around the site, unless it's an awkward question or opinion, etc.
I see some people that are just very well-known here and people talk to them and/or refer to them in other questions and mentioned in other popularity/contest questions.
How does one get to that level? Is level 8 too premature to be expecting that kind of popularity? Because I think, now that I think about it, most of those people are gurus and masters.

i dont believe being known around here has anything to do with how much people like u. if that were the case, i wouldn't be too well known lol. it has a lot to do with how active u r, the advice u give, and ur personality as a whole. how people receive u based on ur opinions, ur attitude, heck even ur damn profile picture, ultimately depends on how much they accept who u r.
all them 'popular' users started off somewhere, and i dont think it takes getting to guru status to be known.4

Popularity is an illusion on this site - A lot depends on how active you are - How often you use anon - Who you are friends with - Those tagging questions are being answered by the same people all the time so it seems that the same 20/30 Gaggers are being mentioned all the time - They will be the first to tell you that outside their group they are as well known as most other Gaggers - On GaG people would give you advice on real life and say don't worry about popularity just be yourself, get to know people by showing people the real you not some pantomine 'Famous' GaG character.0
