Maybe some kind of 'exam' might be fun. Perhaps 10 or so questions per level to gauge your knowledge and assign your rank? Just an idea.
You've hit the nail on the head - the problem is how to get a computer to properly evaluate user knowledge without, as another poster mentioned, some form of advanced AI. I think this whole thread is more-or-less a search to solve that problem, or at least compromise on an approach that is livable.

I do like your idea of an exam. DaemonForums Certified Users - I like it!
