On this site, I’ve prefixed the last three with “q&a”, to make it clear that they are levels for this site, not Fedora in general. (I mean, they might coincide, but might not!)
These aren’t really the names I would have chosen, but I don’t want to significantly deviate from other Discourse sites. As I’m thinking about it now, “Basic” seems… I dunno, a little bit mean. Should we change this to “First-Level”?
Yes, changing it would be more welcoming.
Keep it: the name is negative, but that encourages people to move up!
The basic user is TL1 is it not? The member would then be TL2.
It would then follow that a basic user has minimal rights as is appropriate. I cannot see that most of them even know what their TL is since it is not shown by default even when going to the profile.
If basic is the default why make ours significantly different than other discourse sites?
I don’t think it is mean but simply implies, as it says, basic rights.
