Welcome to Codidact Meta!

Codidact Meta is the meta-discussion site for the Codidact community network and the Codidact software. Whether you have bug reports or feature requests, support questions or rule discussions that touch the whole network – this is the site for you.

What's a relation between trust levels across various Co-communities?

Initially I thought that "Trust levels" feature is independent for each CoDidact community.

But it seems that I was wrong:

When I joined to Languages and Linguistics I was able to give an upvote for some questions & answer.

Is it "by-design", "bug" or maybe these restrictions isn't applied to new communities until they getting mature enough?

The prerequisites for various site activities (currently reputation, to be replaced with trust levels) are configurable per site. The difference you're seeing for voting isn't so much intentional as an artifact. The default is to let even brand-new users have a few votes per day, and that's the setting on Languages & Linguistics. A couple weeks ago our network was under an attack and we lowered that value on some sites to defend against a disruptive troll.

These values can be changed at the request of moderators. We didn't do a great job of announcing this when it happened, for which I accept responsibility. I'll point moderators to this post and let them know that they can ask to change it back on their sites (or change it to something else). Anybody should feel free to start discussions on site-specific metas about these settings.

Wonderful, thank you FoggyFinder‭ 8 months ago

reputation, to be replaced with trust levels. You keep saying this, but rep and trust levels are two different things. Trust levels can be driven from things other than rep (although rep should continue to be some part of trust levels). However, a trust system doesn't address other aspects of rep at all, so "replacing" one with the other makes no sense. The continual reward for work, tapping into gamification, drive for status, fostering competition for more contributions are all missing. Olin Lathrop‭ 8 months ago

@Olin the context of this discussion is privilege-enablement, which is currently done by rep and which it sounds like you agree should not be. Privileges should arise from trust earned by doing things on the site. Monica Cellio‭ 8 months ago

Privileges should arise from trust earned by doing things on the site. Yes, and part of those "doing things" is providing content, so rep should still be part of most trust level threshold. However, my main point is that trust levels don't at all replace the other aspects of rep. I hear how rep is going to be replaced with trust levels too often here. We still need rep for the other things it does, even if it won't be as significant a factor in trust levels. Olin Lathrop‭ 8 months ago
