are there any advantages to being level 7?  why?

Update:

do they at least get more protection from false reporting? or they are less likely to have their account suspended, etc? (I have had numerous questions and answers violated for little to no reason in past months)

    Not a single one. 

    They have been so many rule changes and format changes over the years.......

    that in all the mess..........they either inadvertently, or   didn't care, that they made  level 4  the exact same as levels 5, 6 or 7. 

    These days,  being a level 4 is as good as being a level 7. 

    and NOOOOOO,  we do NOT get any sort of "extra protection".......in fact, we're attacked more  the higher we get, and the more leaderboards we make. 

    But, in the last change............even leaderboards have been frozen now. 

    About the only thing left to take away here, is the ability to ask questions at all.

    Nope. Once you hit Level 4 you've maxed out any "benefits" (which simply are the ability to post more questions/answers per YA day). No user level is more immune to reporting than any other level, and never has been. 

    .

    Individual users USED to be able to control their 'immunity' based on their User Karma (Trust Level), but we don't have any idea if that is even in effect anymore. Users who had low rates of having posts reported and removed (or high rates of winning appeals for removed posts) and had high rates of posts they reported NOT being reinstated, had high "trust levels" and thus their posts required more users to report them to get them removed and/or users with high trust levels needed to report them to increase the chances of their posts being removed. Nowadays it appears that to get any post removed, a number of reports are needed.

    No. To be honest though, anyone who is on level 7 are just refusing to admit to themselves that they are wasting their time... there is NO reason to keep piling up more points after level 4.

    In the Past there use to be they use to have Category Moving of other people's Questions but that was the only thing tho and they took that away so there are no more Advantages to being a Level 7 user once you get to Level 4 Everything else is the same with 5 6 and 7

    No. You used to be able to move people's questions around for fun. But as this sounds, it was heavily misused for sh*ts and giggles. So they got rid of it

    No, not any more.. The unlimited questions and answers was 12 Yeats ago and stopped in 2009. Level 7 accounts. used to be able to move other people's questions to different categories. That was abused so much that Verizon stopped that over 2 years ago.

    Not really, there used to be unlimited answering and asking starting at level 5 so a level 5 account was as good as level 7. Now there isn't really any benefit and L7's don't have more reporting influence. I think they stopped L7's being able to move questions too.
