Hello, happy Sunday!
I’m going to be restoring TL3 “regular” status today. This will cause many of you to receive notifications regarding the status change, likely this evening.
Discourse weighs flags from TL3 users differently than “normal” TL2 users, especially in regards to new users, spammers, and other troublemakers, all of which are valuable tools to help with moderation. It also provides another tool, along with anniversary badges and activity, for the community (and us mods!) to better recognize a segment of “most active” users in the community.
