Trust levels unlock various extra abilities on the forum format such as Posting links and furthermore other things including photos or gifs.
There are at least two examples of that:
I personally have never been treated unfairly, but I have seen people getting banned for weeks over almost nothing because a certain Guild of trolls mass-reported the posts.
I think that most of the moderators are also GMs, and they probably have loads of other things to do, which might be a reason why some of their decisions are questionable?
Yes, Someone from that post followed me to another forum topic and was literally flaming me giving no actual discussion towards the actual topic itself but was their to target me, I constantly asked them to leave me alone and XYZ I was punished.
and how do i know which trust level i am ?
Well, for what it’s worth, I missed your participation, even if we disagreed and you called me stupid 8|
You are Trust Level 2. Search for the word “Trust”. The highest one shown on the page is the level you have attained.
Please re-frame from making bold statements that are incorrect, None of my posts in that forum post have been deleted it was in a different forum, If I did say stupid it was due to your view not you as a person which I maybe should have explained in greater detail, but yes I enjoy a conversation I just come off very hard headed its just how I type, I’ll add in some emojis next time to butter it up.
And how do i get to level 3 ? just posting and being helpful ?
Yes, I know.
I’ve seen many people in these forums use a * to mask a swear word that rhymes with luck and others use ! instead of an i in others. That is against the rules in my opinion but I don’t report it.
However, I am more against people who attack others for making an “I quit” post, I don’t mean saying why post but insulting them and flaming them.
Calling someone stupid or an idiot can get you banned for harassment, it happened to me on the old forums.
The best thing to do is wait a minute or so before making an angry post, otherwise you may get banned.
we start with trust level 0, then get 1 and it unlocks:
- Post more than 3 Topics
- Post more than 10 Replies
- Edit Wiki Posts
- Flag Posts
then we get to trust level 2 and it unlocks
- Create Links to trusted Websites
(Blizzard, YouTube, Twitch etc.)
- Create Video Embeds
- Increased Like Count
then we get to 3 and it unlocks
- Post Images
- Create Links to any Website
- Create Wiki Posts
the threads are locked if too many posts are flaged inside it. and usually they stay locked.
got mine a month ago, but i appealed and it got removed so moderator didnt even review my flagged post and just slammed the ban button.
“Helpful” is not required.

Bukachu, over 1700 posts?
Remember what you called me for having a lot of posts?
I still feel sorry for you losing that godly number.
tradings likes for in game gold!!!
Rofl it was meant tongue in cheek, you can call me anything you want dude, I only noticed it later today when I was reading back on whether I maintained composure or should unplug and go live in the mountains.
Use emojis at your own volition.
Couldn’t have summed it up better, it is all about keeping up a public image and companies are running in fear of a twitter mob coming after them.
did they not reset the post count when they introduced the new forums ?
Just because I can use Forums while at job doesnt make me you
You have to know how to play the system.
Sometimes forum bans are just silly though. I got one overturned about a year or so ago, when I was ‘banned for trolling’, but I made my arguments in a ticket and got my ban undone. Sometimes a moderator doesn’t quite have enough context.
