There’s recently been a lot of confusion about our trust level system, particularly about restrictions on new users. To clear up the confusion, we’ve added some text to the rules about this as follows:
In the section “This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion”, text added:
As an anti-spam measure, FEU uses a trust level system. This means that new users are restricted from certain actions until you’ve participated a certain amount. Most importantly, these restrictions include posting images and certain types of links. So long as you’re participating normally, you’ll reach trust level 2 after 24 hours. If you’re an existing member and you see a new member struggling, please direct them to these rules!
Note that, with this change, we are ending our unofficial policy of manually granting members trust level 2 early on request.
