What trust level do you need to message? What do you need to do to get that rank?

I’ve been a member since November of 2017, have over 63 hours in Infinite Flight live, have done 4,000 ATC operations, posted 7+ times, viewed over a hundred posts, and have liked tons of posts. Is the rank-up process automatically done? Is it done by a moderator? I read somewhere that the requirements are kept secret, but don’t know what else I can do to get to trust level 1. I’m trying to get this rank to message an ATC supervisor about applying to join the ATC team on the expert servers. Any ideas?


You need to contribute more to the forum, this is done by liking posts, commenting etc. Just being a member won’t get you to basic, it’s done automatically by the way.


Hi , I just had a look at your activity and it appears that 3 hours ago is the earliest interaction you’ve had in the community. Just keep reading, liking posts and post constructively in threads.

FYI- Live stats don’t come into play for the community ;)


Alright, I’ll keep contributing. Thanks for your reply!
