Huh what? What are you whining about? But, please allow me to retort...
Interested in other views....
Really? And when you get them, throw an immature, insecure tantrum? Howsabout, ACTUALLY addressing and answering the questions poised by someone who actually spent the time to read your post?
A very valuable skill in poker is the ability to read people, which I don't think is addressed in your pyramid, btw. So I'll call your bluff on that. You're not an "old guy".
grab a 'chill pill, or doggie downer'(old guy terms) and learn to deal with some criticism with a modicum of respect.
Where is the pyramid?
Why are 'wilderness', 'beginner', 'novice', not the same thing? Let's banter semantics here, as beginner and novice mean the same thing, right? What is wilderness, is that like jungle, or woods/forrest? Is that your pyramid base? Well, that is just plain crap.
Ok, then we have 'expert' and 'master', once again they basically mean the same thing, right?
Correct me if I wrong, btw. I might see where a 'expert' is not a 'master' (leave that as an exercise), but can't see how a 'master' is not already an 'expert', right?
So, again, what do we have here, the 2nd level and capstone for your pyramid? Well that is just plain crap.
Lastly, I have a better kicker, why is your 'pyramid' an image? Couldn't you just post the text?
