    Best from Bobo
    The upper set of green (or whatever) boxes under the member's category are called ranks - basically a visual representation of the member's group and/or level within that group. The green ones are the default set for members, and they light up and increase to a second row as the member's post count reaches various milestones.

    The lower set of green boxes are a representation of a member's reputation and are affected by many factors: time spent as a member, number of posts, number of Likes/LoLs/Thanks received for posts, awards or other recognitions received, reputation boosts from other members, even reputation boosts given to other members; they all add up over time.

    What that means is: the more active members climb the ranks faster.

    What do I mean by that? 'getting ahead'. isn't it a trace from the American dream?

    I'm not american and to me (an english person) getting ahead means getting somewhere, however you said your getting nowhere, hence my question. But this is a thread for member ranks to be discussed,do you have a question about those?
