The normal required number of points now is 25,000 to get an advice column. However, we also look at the quality of your posts. So if you can post/answer good content and not just short answers, that makes a difference and can get you one sooner. One of the ways to get the most points is by getting selected as best answer for something (300 points for that). Posting a quality question and selecting the best answer is another good way. We will review things over the next week and let you know. Just keep posting good content and you should be able to get one soon.
