Trust Levels

By default, new members start with trust level 0. To gain trust, you must perform certain actions described on this page.

Users at trust level 0 cannot…

  • Send private messages to other users
  • “Reply to new topic” via Link button (UI removed)
  • Flag posts
  • Post more than 1 image
  • Post any attachments
  • Post more than 2 hyperlinks in a post
  • Have actual links in the ‘about me’ field of their profile (will be silently and temporarily converted to plain text)
  • Mention more than 2 users in a post

To enable all functions of our website a new member will have to gain level 1 (which is quite easy).

You gain trust level 1 by…

  • entering at least 5 topics
