[Announcement] Update on Trust Levels

Hey guys! A quick forum maintenance update: we’ve gotten rid of Trust Levels 3+ for anyone aside from MakeCode team members–the “trust levels” were a feature that came with these forums, and we weren’t really using them for anything!

We’re still trying to figure out the best way to organize these forums and we super appreciate your patience as we change things up every now and then. :slight_smile:


Is there still the lounge? I can’t go to that category.

Oh I see. Trust level 3 is first private for maintenance?

Hi! Did you also disable private messaging? Or am I just not looking in the right place?

I think we are all ranked down to level 3 for now.

@AlexK I believe private messaging has been disabled for a while now (or at least, was intended to be) re: MakeCode Forum Code of Conduct Code of Conduct => Don't over-share


Do you mean that the Lounge is still “under maintenance”?

I can’t find it anymore :frowning:

Yup. You are right

Thanks, @jwunderl! Hadn’t realized it was disabled. Been useful for those very few times when I’ve needed to have private conversations, but there probably are better ways to have those. Bummed that I can’t banter with @discobot anymore. :smile:

Wait… can we still be trust level 3?

For now only MakeCode team members are trust level 3!

Any plans on updating this policy? I’m really bummed trust level 3 doesn’t exist anymore as many active MakeCode users would deserve it!
