A few weeks ago I was granted the ‘Regular’ badge. Today, my highest badge is ‘Member.’ Is it normal for badges to be added and removed like this? I’m just a bit confused and curious.
Oh yes, it seems so, the docs say:
To get to trust level 3 [Regular], in the last 100 days…
- Must have [done this]
- Must have [done that]
All of the above criteria must be true to achieve trust level 3. Furthermore, unlike other trust levels, you can lose trust level 3 status . If you dip below these requirements in the last 100 days, you will be demoted back to Member. However, in order to avoid constant promotion/demotion situations, there is a 2-week grace period immediately after gaining Trust Level 3 during which you will not be demoted.
Oh, fantastic! Thanks! That makes more sense than the man behind the curtain deciding who is and isn’t ‘Regular’
Many things in Discourse are done like this, trying to automatise clever upgrades and downgrades, in what all people can do or not.
Trying to limit the stuff that only admins could do but they would have no time to do.
