After trying to figure out a way to limit the trust levels, and seeing it is something complex in our case, we were thinking about the option of limiting or avoiding likes in a specific category. Since the likes are counted in trust levels, this could be useful so that in a specific category the users can’t give likes (it would be just a read and respond category, no new posting)
That way, the likes only count outside of that category, and therefore the activity in that category won’t suffice to scale up trust levels.
Any thoughts on if this is possible?
And if it’s not, I was thinking of an option: would there be a way to add in this tab (category > security) a “likes” option too so that when I adjust a category I can define that X users can’t like in it?
AFAIK you can’t — but I don’t have any deeper knowlegde here.
But… Is it possible to take easy road? Do your users really need all the tools that higher TL automatically gives? Then you could limit users to TL2 and give TL3 manually to those few who has will, need and knowledge use those tools.
Then it doesn’t matter how many likes they give or get.
