When you create an account for the site you become trust level 0. If you’re invited and you create your account via the supplied link, you become trust level 1 (basic).
A level 0 needs to do the following before being automatically promoted to level 1 (I’m not sure if these rules are AND or OR - I suspect AND):
- Open 5 topics
- Read 50 posts (Easy if you read the Shoutbox topic)
- Spend 15 minutes reading posts
Trust level 1 users have the ability to use private messaging.
Although the minimum trust level to create a topic is 0, there must be some underlying behaviour preventing this. I’m not sure if that setting is currently being ignored.
To be promoted to trust level 2 (regular), you must:
- Open 20 topics
- Read 100 posts
- Spend 60 minutes reading posts
- Visit the site for 15 days
- Have received 1 like
- Have given 1 like
- Replied to 3 different topics
There are no automatic rules at this current point to promote to levels 3 (leader) and 4 (elder), although in the next release apparently there will be rules for auto promotion to level 3, along with a special “Lounge” category for >=level 3 (Although I don’t think we will necessarily use this feature).
I want the couch in the corner, the one in the shady spot so that I can mute Anni and take a nap.
@arby Are you like Sheldon from Big Bang Theory?
Gas, you need to go in to your profile and change your username.
@qa6252 (Gas) I probably am a little. Bit of a strange lad really.
You are a crazy person, talking about Gus when Im clearly talking about Gas…
Besides if it was Gas then there would have been a lot more hate directed at me in the post
I did change my nick … right after I realised it took my secret email address as a user name. I then checked this morning and it did not save the changes - but it should be fine now
@arby - Why would there be more hate from me? I feel a little bit touched - ITPMKOW.
A strange thing to remember - I forget easily.
No it’s not fine now. I’ll fix it for you.
NOOOoooooo … It must be fixed. I clicked the button thrice!
I see what you did. You changed your name. You needed to change your username, which is the field just above it. I set it to Ga5can, change it if you like.
Thank you. I corrected it. Note that the “5” confuses quite a few people, especially @ANiMOSiTY
Ah. Wanting to avoid the Gay-5-can issue, eh?
@thisgeek Seems as if I have to add you also to the list?
Is this a race? If so I don’t consider the title “elder” as being a suitable prize.
It’s not the same anymore… Gascan doesn’t have the same striking visual as Ga5can.
@ANiMOSiTY gets confused easily so I understand where you are going with the name.
Lol, I have liked your OP and then saw I was the third to do it. Can see we are gamers.
