User Ranks

Admin

Admins are the highest rank for the forum. They have all moderator privileges in addition to control of forum creation and deletion, setting permissions for members or usergroups, forum skin and colour editing, usergroup creation, giving or revoking moderator privileges, and more. Admins can overrule any moderator action.

Moderator

Moderators are special users with the ability to enforce forum rules. This includes locking topics and editing posts by other members. They also have special posting privileges such as posting sticky topics or announcements. All moderators are appointed by an admin. Moderator privileges extend to all sections of the forums.

Elite Member

Elite members are those who have contributed a great deal to the forums.

Veteran Member

Veteran members are those who have contributed a lot to the forums.

Member

The 'member' rank is for users who frequently make posts.

Junior Member

Junior members are those who have made some contributions to the forums.

New Member

New members are those who have posted few times on the forums.

Trust Levels

Loremaster

Loremasters are the core group of founding members. They have full access to the library. No other users can be promoted to this level.

Trusted

Users who have full access to the library. They are well-known users who are trusted to not abuse others' lore by copying or sharing without permission.

Initiate

New members who have not reached trusted status. Initiates can be promoted to trusted once they prove themselves. Initiates do not have access to the full library.

How to increase rank and trust level

To start off I'll explain why there are two different trust levels. The 'trusted' status is for people who are well-known to one another and already have some knowledge of the lore being discussed. They are trusted to not abuse someone else's work(s). The 'initiate' status is for new members who aren't known to the main group of loremasters and trusted status members. By posting an introduction thread and sharing some of their lore, an initiate can engage with the trusted members of the community. With enough interaction that trust may be built up and one of the trusted members may open a poll to bring that initiate to trusted status. When an initiate enters the next trust level they will have access to the full library. In addition, all of their posted lore can be moved to the trusted members' forums where more intense and thorough discussion happens. User ranks is even easier. Simply making posts will level your rank up. You can follow your progress with the bar by your avatar and rank name. Please don't use this as an excuse to spam topics. Quality over quantity.
