Cant create a discussion?

So I wanted to post something recently I'm new to boards and how the system works and all but it said you need to be level 7 to create a discussion or comment so I went to my profile and saw I'm level 5 and match history I clicked on match history and it wasn't really updated with my recent matches I thought that since there was level 5 maybe that's my in-game level but I'm lvl 17 so is there a level system on boards I don't know about or something else? Edit: My level on my profile seems to have changed to the appropriate level but it still says I'm not level 7 or need to be level 7 to create a discussion? P.S sorry for the long post I'm just super confused
