Level 3 requirements not taking flagged posts or suspensions into account


(Patrick Klug) #1

I have a user who is promoted to level 3. Checking the requirements shows this:

I know that the user has multiple flagged posts within the last 100 days. Is this value not being calculated at the moment?

I’d also suggest to require a level 3 user not to have been suspended in the last 100 days.


Flags are not being factored into trust level 3

What do you mean by “Banned”? Suspended?


(Patrick Klug) #3

yes, I meant suspended.

So instead of testing only for

must not have received more than 5 spam or offensive flags (with unique posts and unique users for each, confirmed by a moderator)

have a “was suspended” check a well? Makes sense to me, though I think in most cases what’s in place would do, no?

Bear in mind, we just fixed all the flagging controls about 3 weeks ago so we could consistently track flag disposition: agree, defer, disagree. So older flags might not yet have the data to indicate agreement by the moderator.

Totally agree on suspensions.

Those flags must not have been “agreed” with by moderators.

I added a check for suspended users. They won’t qualify for TL3 anymore. :blush:

If it was in the last 100 days or ever? Just curious, I don’t feel strongly about it one way or another.

All TL3 criteria are in the last 100 days, except those that explicitly say they are not (e.g. the whole site must have a minimum number of topics).
