How to check your Trust Level


(Haiete) #1

The introduction of the new forums also brings trust levels. You can earn trust levels by being an active member. There are a total of five trust levels: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4. The fourth one can only be granted by moderators.

However, it is impossible to check your trust level on the forums here. Therefore, we’ll need some extra help. There are three methods to check the trust level of your own characters, or of that of others.

Overwatch forums tool The tool is meant for the Overwatch forums, but fortunately, it can be used for the WoW forums as well. You can find it on `http://red-rose.com/forum-trust-level/`. In "Battlenet ID", fill in your character name and its realm. For me, it's "Haiete-wildhammer". For someone from Argent Dawn, it's "[name]-argent-dawn". You can find it easily by going to your own profile, and head to 'preferences'.

Once the name is filled in, click on the link that appeared (after “I loaded your data from (…)”. You’ll get an error, but don’t worry, we just need to edit the url a bit and the tool will be used.

  • Replace “us” with “eu”.
  • Replace “overwatch” with “wow”.

And hit enter. You will now have your full account loaded, and you’re ready to find out what trust level you have. Hit Ctrl+ F, and search for “groups”. Beneath that, you will find the trust levels that you have earned.

It goes as follows: if you scroll down, you will find the names of the groups you’re in. Group 0 is trust level 0, this is also the name of the group. Group 1 is trust level 1. Group 2 is trust level 2, and so on. The highest trust level visible there, is your trust level. If you take an MVP (for example, Danellos-argent-dawn, the first I could find) you will see that his highest trust level visible there is 3, therefore he has trust level 3. For me, it’s trust level 1.

It must be noted that this is far from the efficient way of checking your trust levels. Instead, there are two more methods that are easier to use and require less work.

Adding .json after the URL If you quickly want to find out what your trust level is, you can use this method. Go to your forum profile page by clicking anywhere on your avatar. For example, near the upper-right corner, click on your character's avatar, and then click on your own name when it appears. You should have the following url loaded:

https://eu.forums.blizzard.com/en/wow/u/[name-realm-(realm)]

After that, add “.json”. And again, like the previous method – You will now have your full account loaded, and you’re ready to find out what trust level you have. Hit Ctrl+ F, and search for “groups”. Beneath that, you will find the trust levels that you have earned. It goes as follows: if you scroll down, you will find the names of the groups you’re in. Group 0 is trust level 0, this is also the name of the group. Group 1 is trust level 1. Group 2 is trust level 2, and so on. The highest trust level visible there, is your trust level. If you take an MVP (for example, Danellos-argent-dawn, the first I could find) you will see that his highest trust level visible there is 3, therefore he has trust level 3. For me, it’s trust level 1.

Using a specific tool The last method will not only list the trust level of one character, but of all your characters.

These three methods will be able to help you to learn what your trust level you have.

If you are interested in how to earn trust levels, use this guide (assuming that the setting from the HotS forums also apply here):
https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/heroes/t/new-forum-syntax-guide-details-about-trust-levels/380

An example of someone (me) who has trust level 2: https://eu.forums.blizzard.com/en/wow/u/haiete-wildhammer.json

An example of someone (an MVP) who has trust level 3: https://eu.forums.blizzard.com/en/wow/u/Danellos-sylvanas.json

A few more considerations: if you use method 2, you’ll find a lot of information that you might perceive as personal, such as IP-address. This information is only accessible by you, and only you can see it for as long as you’re active on the character you’re checking. So if you switch from character 1 to 2, you can see detailed information on character 2, but not on 1.

Furthermore, trust levels are basically groups you’re placed in. When you’ve earned another trust level, you will be placed in the next trust level groups. The members of these groups are publicly visible.

Do we know if it will be character specific, or “account bound”?


(Zirahael) #3

Let the farming of likes and upvotes commenceth!


(Haiete) #4

It’s character-specific, since every character is considered a separate account for some reason.


#5

Well that seems backwards for a supposed better forum.


(Haiete) #6

I think it’s the only way to allow us to post with our own characters. They’ll probably fix it in the future, as it can also be used to like your own posts/flag others’ multiple times.


#7

So basically whoever posts the most positive, and once in a while giving Blizzard a hand job posts get the prize? Wowzer


(Haiete) #8

Not really, it mostly depends on how active you are (e.g. how long have you spent reading the forums, how many threads have you read, etc.). Likes play only a small role. I’ll rephrase that in the OP.


(Grimmj) #9

I’ll create a proper trust level checker later this afternoon. People shouldn’t have to edit an url and search a json file manually.

Thank you for pointing out how to do it, makes it easier for me to implement :slight_smile:


(Shammoz) #10

At the moment it appears it is character specific but that may change, it’s not ideal.

As for viewing your trust level, the only way at the moment is to view the .Json file but I have no idea how you do that lol.


(Shumensko) #11

You can, just surround the url with apostrophs, like this:
red-rose.com/forum-trust-level


#12

So now we have to grind trust levels as well? Wonder when the forum mission table will be added with extra RNG on top of RNG and maybe you’re allowed to post a link if you roll an item for it.

What a bunch of utter nonsense. 10+ Years of posting on the forums means nothing, of course.


(Punyelf) #13

Oh so the reason I can’t post a link on our guild ad is because I need to grind more trust first. I currently can’t direct people to our guild application form because I’m not allowed to post links xD

Guess I’ll have to grind myself some trust :slight_smile:


#14

Yup. There are ways around it as posted above, so it’s really arbitrary as well.


(Grimmj) #15

Surround the link with backticks: ``
link won’t be clickable but atleast readable.

(Shammoz) #16

It shouldn’t take long and as one of the requirements is to receive a Like, I have taken care of that for you :slight_smile:


(Haiete) #17

Alright, thank you!

Possibly with the link I posted in the OP.

Thank you! That’s very helpful.


#18

Forum mission table lol

You will all soon be my minions, now go fetch me 12 boar tusks, intact mind you. Any sign of damage and I wont accept them!


#19
