D&D Hall of Fame:

Singhi's 3.0 campaign - started at 1000 xp, vanished into nothingness at 2995 xp.
Paolo's 3.0 one-shot - too much DMPCing.
Luca's 3.0 campaign - started as a CoDM-PC, made a PC shortly after. Still no level ups.
My 3.0 campaign - aborted three rooms from the end.
Marco's 3.5 7-PCs-campaign - aborted for scheduling problems. Still no level ups.
Marco's intro to RttToEE - gave DMing right to me after 2 sessions. Arbitrary leveling up between those.
My 3.5 Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil. TPK'ed at level 8/9.
Marco's 3.5 all manuals campaign - aborted for excessive PC firepower. Guess what.
Marco's 3.5 random characters campaign - aborted after less than 10 minutes of play.
Pier's 4e Keep on the Shadowfell - gave DMing rights to me before I could level.
My 3.5 Expedition to the Demonweb Pits. - Completed!
My 3.0 City of the Spider Queen. - Completed!
My 4e Keep on the Shadowfell. - Completed! Kavu's 3.5 Daemonfey campaign
My 3.5 Expedition to Undermountain - aborted when we got a 4e group again

comment Does roleplaying inherently put you at a disadvantage?
@WolfmanJoe I'm not postulating it's the only one. I'm saying it's the one that the rules support better, going into more detali and providing rewards that help you do so. It's a game about dungeons and dragons! People avoiding every combat with diplomacy checks aren't usually welcome because they detract from what more than half the game is about: being competent adventurers.

comment Does roleplaying inherently put you at a disadvantage?
@G0BLiN my point is, killing is rewarded as much as other options, and is treated as a perfectly cromulent solution, to the point where it's the only one (along with otherwise defeating it) that has quantified rules to assign it, contrapposed to the bolded rewards you name. Let's agree before I edit on this. Meanwhile, I added a word about gold buying items to kill better.

My own experience made me think primarily about this. I've uplvooted other answers giving good advice or facing the problem from a different side.

comment How many editions of Dungeons & Dragons are there?
I guess this speaks for the huge differences between the so-called "editions" of the game. Every D&D edition is a different beasts that keeps some similarities to its previous incarnations and often requires to know how a previous edition was played to understand its assumptions. Yet there were licenses that were legally sold and these new D&D games are still D&D. Amen to the deletion.
