We’ve been seeing an increase in topics regarding why some of you haven’t reached a certain trust level, so i thought i’d just give you a short explanation of why this might be the case.
Most of the topics I’ve been seeing, have been regarding TL2 (also known as “Member”).
I can imagine quite a few of you have seen this topic, and may be thinking that you should have reached TL2 based on the numbers stated:
This is a great topic, it does not however reflect the requirements we have choose to have here on IFC. So this topic only gives you a hint of the requirements, not the actual requirements for IFC.
So, what are the requirements here on IFC for the different trust levels?
This is something we have choose not to disclose, because we don’t want you to blindly stare at requirements just so you can reach the next trust level. As you know, we’re always on about how we want productive topics, topics that inspires great discussions. Just posting aiming to reach the requirements for the next trust level, will most likely not end up with productive posts.
It could also be the case, that we for some reason have choose to lock a users trust level. This is not something that we do very often, but in some cases we feel it’s needed as the user needs some more time to understand how the forum works and so on.
I know many of you also aspire to become TL3 (also known as “Regular”). And it’s great that you do!
Regulars are the role models, the ones new users should be able to look up to. Even though TL3 have requirement parameters in the same way as the other trust levels do, TL3 users are constantly being evaluated, and we sometimes promote TL2 users that have been exceptionally helpful and have been setting great examples for others in here. But unfortunately, we also have demote some TL3 users that haven’t been living up to the expectations.
I hope this clears up a few things regarding trust levels.
And if you have any questions, we’re always just a PM away!
Hope all of you are having a great weekend.
