Forum Trust Level

@Richard.Dane not sure where to post this. It appears some users trust levels have reverted from regular back to member. Is this deliberate or a fault in the software?

I noticed that as well, but thought I could have been mistaken. Guess I’m not the only one

If you are not contributing regularly it suspects you are not in quarantine as instructed :wink:

Haha!
My part of the world has been in quarantine for 2 weeks now. The first week is the toughest IMHO.
Regarding the trust level issue, I’m wondering if it has something to due with the cookies message that keeps popping up for me every week or so. I tend to use the Safari web browser.

John, trust levels can go up and also down. Certain activity may influence this. For example if a member has had to be moderated then it can lower the trust level.

As far as I am aware I haven’t been a naughty boy and been moderated, maybe I haven’t posted enough for a few weeks.

Thanks Richard for the explanation. Guess I need to post more to the Cables Mania thread. :slight_smile:

No, but if you attain level 3, then that will only be maintained through regular activities, otherwise it reverts to the standard level 2 after a bit.

From the Discourse blog;

Trust Level 3 — Regular

Regulars are the backbone of your community, the most active readers and reliable contributors over a period of months, even years. Because they’re always around, they can be further trusted to help tidy up and organize the community.

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.

Where does one find a trust level?

Your trust level shows as member. The easiest way to show it is to press on a members picture or your own to show the trust level.

To be honest I couldn’t care less what the software thinks my trust level is. I post when I want to, not to please some algorithm. If I have nothing to say I won’t post. If that makes me less trustworthy, so be it.

Well, I wouldn’t trust anyone who posts infrequently :thinking:

Aha. Thanks. I’m not on the desktop version. My iPad doesn’t look like that but at least now I know. Like others I couldn’t care less and shall work hard to lower the if elected of respect I’ve earned.

Yikes, at the rate I am going, I will soon be at “Trust” Level minus 35! Sigh…

Couldn’t care less…
