Higher Level of Authority


#1

How do you obtain a higher level of trust and authority on the forums? I was moderator on quite a few sites, but all of that only matters if I can achieve a higher status on The Stonehearth Forums!


#2

the forums have 5 levels of users:

  • new
  • basic
  • regular
  • leader
  • elder

and the application requires a certain number of views, reads, posts to advance from basic to regular user (someone quoted the numbers not too long ago… dont recall where)…

as for becoming a moderator, well… that has more to do with your willingness to commit long and arduous hours to “the cause”… you have to be dedicated, motivated… have a winning personality… and above all else, incriminating evidence against @Tom


#3

Well firstly Discourse itself has user levels, as far as I know the higher levels aren’t enabled yet, maybe this is fixed in the next upgrade.

As for being an actual moderator, @SteveAdamo and I haven’t quite decided on the hazing and interrogation process required to earn such a ranking.

In actual seriousness it really boils down to maturity, common sense, being friendly and helpful, and being awesome, between us I think @SteveAdamo and I tick 0.4 of those boxes. We have a few people in mind for future moderator suggestions come closer to the beta


#4

I know from being an admin for my own discourse forum that you are able to see all users, and their trust level. Would you mind telling me mine?


#5

looks like you’re currently a basic user…


#6

And just to add there is currently no one above a regular user.


#7

the Elder user status reminds me of the tittle from F^^^^.net XD


#8

Wait! I was promised super premium cool guy status for certain… favors. Was that all just a lie, Geoffers?! I feel so dirty…

Also, hey, you changed your avatar.


#9

welcome to the club my friend…

no, seriously… we meet on Tuesdays at Chili’s…


#10

Well then, how many more posts, views, likes, etc. would I need to get to regular, or even leader? You enjoy me don’t you @SteveAdamo? Don’t you enjoy my company, my personality, my questions (like these few)?

Yes, yes it was. A terrible, dirty, heinous lie. But thank you for the pictures.

Yer, @voxel_pirate was getting really upset about how he found it difficult to distinguish a few people’s avatars. Naturally I changed it to avoid an international incident and protect the very fragile relationship we have.

I don’t think it’s currently possible to get above regular user, @SteveAdamo and I tried abusing our modly powers by placing ourselves in those higher user levels and it just kept throwing up errors. So, unfortunately you just gotta keep on truckin’.

@voxel_pirate provided a handy link to the whole thing over at the meta.discourse, so check that out :smile:


#13

I thought regular was enabled, but that requires flagging a post, and I don’t think I’ve seen any posts worth flagging yet…


#14

Regular requires liking a post not flagging a post. Try that.


#15

I swear I read read that you have to flag a post, but maybe I was wrong.

Is there some way for @SteveAdamo and @Geoffers747 to check on my progress on upgrading to the next trust level?


#16

That was proposed for the level above regular. You might just have to wait a bit now but I think you match all the criteria, can’t really tell though.


#17

Regular is enabled, but that’s the highest that is at the moment.

You are now classed a ‘regular user’. If you go on your profile and look on the left hand side it tells you, just below all of your activity.


#18

actually, im not sure the “common folk” can see that… can you? common folk? :smile:


#19

Yes sir, confirmed for see-able


#20

Nope :disappointed:.

We common people see only…
