Yeah, I’d like there to be a higher trust level + badge for forum users. @richard, @jwunderl, @MakeCode, is this possible?

Unfortunately, higher trust levels get permissions to do more things in a way that we were not able to disallow / turn off (I believe the main ones were it starts allowing direct messages and automatically approving posts at a certain threshold), so we are not able to make those attainable while keeping our current moderation / safety mechanisms.


As quoted by this official Discourse blog entry, the requirements for trust level 3 are:

To get to trust level 3, in the last 100 days…

  • Must have visited at least 50% of days
  • Must have replied to at least 10 different non-PM topics
  • Of topics created in the last 100 days, must have viewed 25% (capped at 500)
  • Of posts created in the last 100 days, must have read 25% (capped at 20k)
  • Must have received 20 likes, and given 30 likes.*
  • Must not have received more than 5 spam or offensive flags (with unique posts and unique users for each, confirmed by a moderator)
  • Must not have been suspended or silenced in the last 6 months

*These likes must be across a minimum number of different users (1/5 the number), across a minimum number of different days (1/4 the number). Likes cannot be from PMs.

Additionally, the trust level can be lost if the requirements are not sufficiently met in the next 100 days.
Regardless, like @jwunderl said, Regular users have higher permssions likewise to those with the “leader” badge. For that reason it’s impossible to grant this badge without breaking safety

Users at trust level 3 can…

  • Recategorize and rename topics
  • Access a secure category only visible to users at trust level 3 and higher
  • Have all their links followed (we remove automatic nofollow)
  • TL3 spam flags cast on TL0 user posts immediately hide the post
  • TL3 flags cast on TL0 user posts in sufficient diversity will auto-silence the user and hide all their posts
  • Make their own posts wiki (that is, editable by any TL1+ users)
  • Daily like, edit, and flag limits increased by 2×

pretty sure i did all of those. cant confirm tho


Like I said, requirements or not you can’t get the badge
