Become an MVP
MVPs are passionate about Microsoft technology and recognized for their exceptional technical expertise, their willingness to help others make the most of their technology, and for making a significant and positive impact on technical communities.
This is no small feat: Of the more than 100 million social and technical community members worldwide, each year only about 3,800 are recognized as MVPs.
MVPs are independent of Microsoft, with separate opinions and perspectives, and are able to represent the views of the community members with whom they engage every day. Potential MVPs are nominated by other technical community members, current and former
MVPs, and Microsoft personnel who have noted their community leadership.
There is no set benchmark for becoming an MVP, in part because it varies by product and product life-cycle. Some of the criteria we evaluate include the impact of a nominee’s contributions to online forums such as Microsoft Answers, TechNet and MSDN; wikis
and online content; conferences and user groups; podcasts, Web sites and blogs; and articles and books.
Each nominee's contributions are compared to other candidates' contributions for the same year. Active MVPs receive the same level of scrutiny as new candidates each year.
Nominate an MVP
To become an MVP, it takes truly exceptional, voluntary contributions to Microsoft-related social and technical communities, coupled with outstanding community leadership and a willingness to freely share deep technical knowledge with others.

How can i change MVP level User in this site ?
MVP is an award given by Microsoft. It's not something specific to this site and it's not a user level. Google/Bing on
Microsoft MVP and read the first few links.

I always like to chime in within threads like these just to add my two cents.
Regarding the MVP Award, Badge and Title
Don't make it a goal to be an MVP or a Moderator simply to do it for the title, flair or other recognition on a forum. Do it because you want to make a difference in the development community. Focus on doing all of the things that can help show that you
are deserving of a title and it will come on it's own (if it does).
As Nassar mentioned in his snippet from the MVP website, only 3,800 MVPs are around each year, which is an incredibly small number so you have to make yourself really stand out. Start doing what you can in any manner to try and give back to the community,
such as :
It's never too late to start contributing and making a difference and if you are genuine with your efforts, good things will come eventually. Even if you are never recognized as an MVP, you'll still have made a difference in the lives of others and made
their lives a bit easier.
I made an effort earlier this year (January) to start "giving back" to the communities that have helped me along the way as a New Year's Resolution and most of my efforts have been spent here, blogging and other community activities. I've found
that I honestly enjoy helping others and have actually learned far more about all of the technologies that I commonly work with because of it.
Contributing will not only allow you to help others, but it will make you a better developer in the process. You'll become the person that knows the answer to questions posed around you and a person that people might look to for guidance (not just within
the forums but within your own workplace). One could argue that that kind of professional recognition could make you an MVP in many more ways than a badge of a forum ever could.
The Moderator tag is once again another one of those that you shouldn't want to do simply because of a badge near your name. The Moderation team on these forums is incredible and is largely comprised of experts (which can be rare to find within forums).
Rarely do issues that involve Moderator-level intervention stick around for that long, so I am not sure if they need for additional Moderators will arise anytime soon. (Honestly, I'm not even sure how the process works in becoming a Moderator)
But as I'll mention again - don't make this a "goal" or priority. If it will happen - it will happen :)

To become a moderator i would suggest you to look on a profile of one of asp.net forums moderator
He is a writer .. He wrote a book
Wrox: Beginning ASP.NET Web Pages with WebMatrix
He is blogger .. Running is own blog site. http://www.mikesdotnetting.com/
He is helping all daynight to the developers of any level. To become a moderator and MVP he is the good example to follow.
Even Rion is going very good. Hope he will be in the MVP list soon.
