Trust Levels: What are they and how do they work


#1

Hey everyone!

This is a primer on the Trust Levels in these forums. We have four trust levels that range from 0 - 3. We have some latitude in what we require for the different trust levels and they may be changed as we get used to these new forums.

When you join these forums for the first time, you are at trust level 0. That means you won’t be able to post links and images, flag posts or create topics. This is to keep spam bots from being able to attack our forum.

Trust Level 1 is called ‘Basic’. To reach trust level 1, which will allow you to post links and images, flag posts, and create topics, you have to

  • enter two topics
  • read 30 posts
  • spend 20 minutes reading posts

Trust level 2 is called ‘Member’. To reach trust level 2, which will allow you to edit wiki posts to add information (a cool feature) you have to

  • enter 20 topics
  • read 100 posts
  • read posts for 120 minutes
  • visit the site for 15 days
  • get 20 likes on your posts
  • give 20 likes to others
  • reply to 20 different topics

Trust level 3 is called ‘Regular’. To reach trust level 3, which will allow you to create your own wiki posts, you have to

  • visit the site 50 times in the past 100 days
  • reply to 10 topics
  • view 20 topics
  • read 500 posts
  • not have more than 5 posts flagged
  • give 30 likes
  • receive 20 likes
  • visit 25 percent of all the threads that have been created in the last 100 days

I hope this helps. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask. :katherinearlene:

Will this be pinned? Maybe it’ll be better so not to get overwhelmed by other threads :sweat_smile:

Edit: forget my comment if it’s wrong :see_no_evil:

#3

I won’t pin it. There’s not so many topics in that particular club. :katherinearlene:


#4

Perfect. So now theres something official we can point to when people worry they’re doing something wrong with links. Thank you, Katherine!


#5

I have no idea if I’ve missed something but… What is a wiki post? Is there a Wattpad version of WIkipedia? ^^"

(Also, how can I see my trust level?)


#6

You should be able to see it on your profile. On here, you can create a wiki post, which will allow people to edit it and keep it updated.


#7

I’ve checked and I can’t find it, but maybe it’ll pop out to me one day XD And are wiki posts special kinds of posts then or something?


#8

You’re currently at trust level 2 which is what the 'member means. I’ll have to add that to my post above.

The wikis on here operate similarly to a wiki page, but they’re in the form of a post on a thread. :katherinearlene:

Edit: They have to be the first post of a thread.


#9

Ohhh I thought Member was rank 1 XD That makes more sense then. Thank you!

So if I understand correctly, you create a topic and then have to also have to have the top post spot to have a wiki page post…?


#10

I’ll post one and you can see how it works.


#11

That would be great! Thank you. (And sorry for not at all understanding and creating extra work for you ^^" )


#12

I’m totally down for answering questions. :katherinearlene:

Here’s the Wiki post I made Best advice for new Wattpadders: Add to this Wiki Post!


#13

How can you enter trust Level 1 if you can’t post topics in Level 0?


#14

20 minutes reading posts? Seriously?

I’m done with this site.


#15

You don’t create them, you visit them.


#16

Trust Level 1 is called ‘Basic’. To reach trust level 1 , which will allow you to post links and images, flag posts, and create topics, you have to

  • enter two topics
  • read 30 posts
  • spend 20 minutes reading posts

#17

Good bye. :katherinearlene:


#18

That really helps!! Thank you so much :smiley: I get it now


#19

You’re already at 16 minutes of read time so you’re almost there. The rules are to stop the spam bots. Legit users will easily meet the requirements for level 1, spam bots wont because they’re just bots.


#20

Still, I’m trying to get things done really. I just wanted blurb help but I have to read 30 posts and spend 20 minutes on here to do anything. I could’ve done that later when I spend hours scrolling through threads but if I start. I won’t stop. I find it kinda stupid.
