This post is a wiki, you are invited to edit.
Abilities relevant for moderation, users at trust level 3 (or regulars) can:
- Recategorize and rename topics
- TL3 spam flags cast on TL0 user posts immediately hide the post
- TL3 flags cast on TL0 user posts in sufficient diversity will auto-silence the user and hide all their posts
- Make their own posts wiki (that is, editable by any TL1+ users)
Users at trust level 4 (or leaders) can do the above, plus:
Edit all posts
Make topics unlisted
Split and merge topics
Any TL4 flag cast on any post immediately takes effect and hides the target post
Make any post a wiki
Finally, staff (moderators) have even more abilities, they can see users’ IP addresses, silence users, delete users, and so on, see for example:
That users and moderators have these abilities does not mean that they should use them. Please discuss below what guidelines moderators should follow.
