We introduced the Skill Gears to get rid of the old ways of showing level through degree and titles. The only way of proving you are worthy of a title, is through showing what you can do with your knowledge and skill. Nowadays more and more people call themselves all sorts of things and make up fancy titles. But we know for a fact, more often than not, that this does not say a damn thing about the value one will and can create for society. Set your Skill level and let the market reflect.
