To become a gold member you have to get 1000 points. Already as mentioned by Mr.Mohan, I understand you have scored 500 points. Another 500 points required. What is your present average score . You divide 500 with your average score which will give you the number of days required for reaching that level .you can try 50 points a day as suggested by the senior most member of the site, in another 10 days. You aim at submitting some good articles which will give you good score. You can also participate in Ask Expert and Forum sections also. The more you score, the faster you will become gold member. All the best to you.
