What can make a user Trust level badge to be locked by the admin?
I suppose that a multitude of things can amount to staff locking a users trust level whether it be for a good or bad reason. Bad things for example could be spamming, limiting their functions etc. Good reason for locking a trust level (for some reason good things are more difficult to think about ) trust the user at maybe TL3 (Regular). I’m sure more people will chip in here.
In that case would it be temporary or permanently locked. I want to understand how discourse works.
Hello and welcome @Annabel
An admin can manually lock a user to a Trust Level at their discretion, so it could be for any reason. It would remain locked until they (or another admin) unlocked it from the
admin/users page. The why and for how long would be down to that site’s administration team.
If you have questions about a particular site then it would be best to contact them about it.
