I also got it wrong because I looked at the Total Points standings, where anyone above 10,000 points is listed as SSChampion. To me, this isn't a big deal, but it seems to me that there should be a better way to understand the scores than "knowing" to look this up in a blog.
For those who have been around a while, this is a relatively easy answer as you've already done this, so you know where to look. But to people newer to the site this is not at all clear (i.e. why is it in a blog vs. article vs. editorial, or somewhere else?)
Further, a) you have to know what to look up to find the answer ("scores", "points", and "levels" is too ambiguous), and b) the post is from 2010, leaving the question as to whether or not this is still accurate information today.
Personally, I chalk this one up to missing documentation. Why not just add a link to the blog on the Total Points page if that is, indeed, the correct answer?
