Yes, legalese is boring, however we cannot have a healthy forum unless we all agree to a few things. We have a Terms of Service and Code of Conduct describing your (and our) behavior and rights related to content, privacy, and laws. By using this forum you agree to abide by these terms and conditions, which are also known as the TOS and CoC.
Trust levels are automatically built into this forum software and are a way of granting experienced members more forum features and access as they spend time contributing to the community.
Every member starts at Trust Level 0 and will generally not be able to post on the forum until they reach Level 1.
Trust Level promotion is based on activity, as per the following overview:
|topics entered||3||20||350 (all time) / 80% (per 100 days)|
|topics replied to||0||5||50 (per 100 days)|
|posts read||20||100||500 (all time) / 25% (per 100 days)|
|minutes reading posts||10||60||N/A|
|days visited||0||15||50 (per 100 days)|
|likes given||0||10||50 (per 100 days)|
|likes received||0||5||40 (per 100 days)|

The Flag feature encourages an element of community-orientated moderation without direct confrontation. Flags also allows members to alert moderators to posts which may be a breach the forum Code of Conduct. In this way we can work together as the body of Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:27
27 Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
Flags are not warnings. They are meant as a suggestion that something may be wrong with a post and allow the member to amend their post as necessary. Should the member continually make posts that breach the Code of Conduct, or makes an edit that do not resolve an infraction, a warning may be issued by moderators.
