I am new to this forum. Can somebody please explain some things to me?

Good evening,

As I am new to this forum, I am confused on what I have to do in order to post suggestions, etc. Today is my first day on this forum, and I am confused. Earlier today, I posted a suggestion, and to start off, I was kindly welcomed by many people. So, when I posted the suggestion, I was told that I have to go up through trust levels? What is that, and how do I know my progress? Thanks for the help.


Welcome! Trust levels are earned basically by spending time on the website.

From the Discourse Website -

The user trust system is a fundamental cornerstone of Discourse. Trust levels are a way of…

  • Sandboxing new users in your community so that they cannot accidentally hurt themselves, or other users while they are learning what to do.
  • Granting experienced users more rights over time, so that they can help everyone maintain and moderate the community they generously contribute so much of their time to.

Just be nice, respectful to staff and members, and how TL’s work is that the more you work, be on IFC, give likes, and are active will earn you trust to gang trust and boom you level up!
