Explanation Required for the Community Messaging


I am new to the community and I want to send a message to an examiner for IFATC exam, but I don’t have the option yet.

Would someone kindly explain what kind of badges I should gather or what other activities I should do before the messaging option opens up for me? Or refer me to a related post (I couldn’t find it myself if any).

Thanks 🙂


You have to reach TL1 to message. This explains trust levels:

You have to become a member (trust level 2) you will need to do this, I will post the requirements to reach that below:

To become a member you have to complete the following:

These are the community guidelines:



Awesome! Thanks for the reference. It was just what I needed. So, should I close this topic now or some mod will take care of it?
