This is an excellent question. Contributors appears to be yet another "release" level, based solely on a system function that calculates a number based on a post in a specific forum. There are also many people both here and at .com who answer questions for people of all levels with no status at all and IMO these folks really deserve credit too.

At one of my sites I set a group up with a little image that said "Contributor" and the staff and I would manually tick a box when we saw people answering questions and helping out. It boosted both morale and posting and was all done by human beings.
