How To Stop Being Listed As A "NEW USER"

So if your wondering on how To get the “New User” listing off… The simple answer is to earn Badges :grin:… Well (1) Badge to be specific! :wink:

There are certain LEVELS on the forum (4) in total, but really only (3) Available to us Users… without Admin appointment of the 4th level! :thinking: :sweat_smile:

So starting off all new users have limits on what they can do :expressionless:… They are:

  • Send personal messages to other users
  • “Reply as new topic” via Link button (UI removed)
  • Flag posts
  • Post more than 1 image
  • Post any attachments
  • Post more than 2 hyperlinks in a post
  • Have actual links in the ‘about me’ field of their profile (will be silently and temporarily converted to plain text)
  • Mention more than 2 users in a post
  • Post more than 3 topics
  • Post more than 10 replies

  • Use all core Discourse functions; all new user restrictions are removed
  • Send PMs

  • TL3 flags cast on TL0 user posts in sufficient diversity will auto-silence the user and hide all their posts
