TibiaQA is meant to be a site moderated by the community itself in a big part. Moderators exist to review actions taken by the community or make decisions on edge cases.
Each user starts with 10 points. Points are earned by taking actions on the site, as described in Get Started
The privileges and amount of points required is still being tweaked. Below is the current summary. Please note, that those privileges are not valid on meta (yet). We may also use different thresholds for meta. Keep in mind that user points are separate for core and meta.
15 points: Allow users to post on other user's profile walls
20 points: Allow users to vote on comments & questions
30 points: Allow users to vote on answers
70 points: Allow users to vote down
150 points: Allow users to flag posts (after reaching certain amount of flags, the post is hidden; also moderators can take actions quicker on flagged posts)
500 points: Review and accept or reject posts from unregistered or unconfirmed users
750 points: Allow users to reassign tags in any question
1000 points: Allow users to edit any question and any answer
2500 points: See flagged posts and single-handedly hide any posts from the site; also allows re-showing any posts that were hidden by flags or other users
NOTE: Current point thresholds are also listed on Get Started
Are there any other privileges that we could potentially grant for points?
- Choose answer to any question (useful when author doesn't do this or question was posted by unregistered user)
- Close any question
- Viewing who voted or flagged posts
- Editing any question/answer/comment
I'm curious to hear your suggestions on new privileges or tweaks to already existing ones.
