"User trust levels are a way of...
Sandboxing new users in your community so that they cannot accidentally (or intentionally!) hurt themselves, the forum, or other users while they are learning what to do.
Granting experienced users more rights so that they can help maintain and moderate the community they generously contribute so much of their time to."
Trust levels are a part of Discourse (our forum software). We won't be relying heavily on them, so all users will start at trust level 1, for the time being at least. By meeting certain activity requirements, a user may be upgraded to trust level 2. At this level, a user may edit wiki posts. If you want to know more about trust levels, their restrictions, and how to 'level up' you can read the article here however note that certain limits and permissions have been adjusted on this forum.
