Trust levels explained

I’ll be cleaning up a few things and adding some guide topics while I do,
In the end I hope new users find these in their welcome posts/PM’s

this topic ties in with

These do get tweaked as needed and may not be 100% accurate

  • Casting at least 1 like
  • Receiving at least 1 like
  • Replying to at least 3 different topics
  • Entering at least 20 topics
  • Reading at least 100 posts

  • Invite outside users to PMs making a group PM
  • Daily beer limit increased by 1.5× :beers:
  • Ignore other users
  • Edit their own posts for up to 30 days after posting

Trust Level 3 — Regular

To get to trust level 3, in the last 100 days…

  • Must have visited at least 50% of days
  • Must have replied to at least 10 different topics
  • Of topics created in the last 100 days, must have viewed 25% (capped at 500)
  • Of posts created in the last 100 days, must have read 25% (capped at 20k)
  • Must have received 20 likes, and given 30 likes.*
  • Must not have received more than 5 spam or offensive flags (with unique posts and unique users for each, confirmed by a moderator)
  • Must not have been suspended or silenced

* These likes must be across a minimum number of different users (1/5 the number), across a minimum number of different days (1/4 the number). Likes cannot be from PMs.

All of the above criteria must be true to achieve trust level 3. Furthermore, unlike other trust levels, you can lose trust level 3 status . If you dip below these requirements in the last 100 days, you will be demoted back to Member. However, in order to avoid constant promotion/demotion situations, there is a 2-week grace period immediately after gaining Trust Level 3 during which you will not be demoted.

Users at trust level 3 can…

  • Recategorize and rename topics
  • Access a secure category only visible to users at trust level 3 and higher
  • Have all their links followed (we remove automatic nofollow)
  • TL3 spam flags cast on TL0 user posts immediately hide the post
  • TL3 flags cast on TL0 user posts in sufficient diversity will auto-silence the user and hide all their posts
  • Make their own posts wiki (that is, editable by any TL1+ users)
  • Daily beer limit increased by 3× :beers:

Trust Level 4 — Leader

Get to trust level 4 by…

  • Manual promotion only
  • (Possibly via a to-be-developed election system in the future)
  • Nominations are always accepted PM preferred

Users at trust level 4 can…

  • Edit all posts
  • Pin/unpin topic
  • Close topics
  • Archive topics
  • Make topics unlisted
  • Split and merge topics
  • Reset topic bump date
  • Daily beer limit increased by 10× :beers:
  • Any TL4 flag cast on any post immediately takes effect and hides the target post
