Quick update - I stopped the ad on Facebook because the situation with the pandemic in Bulgaria worsened and they closed again almost everything that unfortunately affected my business. Of course, I continue to work on what I can for Safe. I will post updates on my Safe World Domination efforts once a month :bitcoin:

You can see the first post in this topic. I will do all the technical things, you are required to simply pay the monthly hosting fee and of course you will be the admin in the new forum, ie. you will have to moderate it :dragon:

Hi the guide is really good thank you. Particularly excellent for anyone with little knowledge about computing like myself.

It seems the £5 a month is for an e-mail facility too. Am I correct in assuming that the new forum will work without one? I’ve always preferred logging into this forum to check posts/messages and receiving notification emails is superfluous to my personal requirements. Perhaps I can just work on following the excellent instructions and setting it up.

Would it be possible to let me know about the suspension system in place on this forum? I have re-read the forum guidelines and am aware of the grounds for a ban, but not the duration of suspensions or how many result in a permanent ban.

Thanks again for your help. Best wishes

Please excuse this addendum but there appears to be an issue with the edit function on my account, unless there has been a forum-wide alteration - I can no longer edit anything I write as even within 1 minute it now says the post was created too long ago. This is leading to multiple posts which I would rather not be creating in succession. Thanks again

@Dimitar my apologies I have studied the guide again and realise that it is extra for the email facility but still a small fee for the forum. It is very reasonable considering the potential benefits to many people having the opportunity to communicate with one another - there are a number of telegram groups who may really appreciate the construction of a new safe space. I really appreciate your offer to help with all the technical aspects - the guide is very user friendly so I will attempt to follow it step by step as it will help me learn more about the process but I will most certainly ask for your expert advice. This is great! Thank you again.
(the edit facility is now functioning on my account again thanks :smiley:)

I can add your forum to my email account and you will not pay for sending emails. Write me a personal message if you need help :love:

We changed the edit restrictions for different levels of users because there are bots that post a topic in the forum with normal content and then edit it to add harmful content / links. Your user’s restriction has been removed.

Hi @ElsieDee,

the forum moderators decided to lock your account to level 1, which is limited in the ability to edit posts, so if you decide to continue posting in our forum you will have to comply with this restriction.

Hi @Dimitar

Thanks for letting me know! I’m not familiar with a level 1 lock? Is that the same as my account before the membership was granted? I was able to edit for 2 weeks before It was gradually and sequentially reduced to 2 minutes…prior to my sudden suspension for ‘being in the wrong place’ - its all slightly ridiculous and it seems that @sasha didn’t appreciate my viewpoints on a number of topics - and instead of participating in the conversation properly chose to misuse moderating powers…interesting that this misappropriation of capacity has gained general consensus - whilst I think its petty, tedious and obstructive - and particularly disappointing behaviour on a forum primarily dedicated to the discussion of a network ostensibly dedicated to the promotion of freedom, privacy and security…I am indeed aware that further discussion of anything moderator related belongs in Meta so will leave it here and work with my level 1 lock - which will be easier to do when I am aware of the parameters.

Thank you again for explaining what has happened. You are the first moderator to do so. As ever, much appreciated.

Best wishes

Elsie

Thank you @Dimitar I genuinely appreciate the clear definition, transparency and visual aid. It makes all the difference.

It seems the level 1 status is exactly what I had before - and yet my editing function was formerly approximately 14 days. What are the exact restrictions on editing for a level 1 user? I accept that ‘indefinite’ is reserved for members - and whilst 30 minutes is an improvement on 3 - is there a genuine reason why my editing capacity has been reduced to half an hour?

I would like to ask to have it restored to its former duration, prior to the gradual reduction.

Many thanks

Edit…I have just read the discourse info. It seems after 3 1/2 years posting on the site, having given 1.8k likes and received 468, created 824 posts and read 8.2k…being granted level 2 membership, however short lived was well overdue…it seems 30 days was listed as the editing time - but no information on the duration for basic users…
As I said, formerly I was able to edit for 14 days. I would like to request this is restored.
Many thanks

There is nothing in the information

please excuse me there is a problem - I just tried to edit the last sentence - ‘there is nothing in the information’ which was an incomplete sentence - but the page wouldn’t load. What I wanted to write was 'there is nothing in the discourse information about the duration of edit function for a level 1 user - though formerly I was afforded 14 days. Thank you.

Your account is locked to level 1 - currently, all users level 0 and 1 are limited to the ability to edit up to 30 minutes after posting:

Thank you - but I was at level 1 before right? And able to edit for 14 days. The box you have just shown me is adjustable. I was granted level 2 for one evening - although the discourse material clearly states:

Get to trust level 2 by…

@dimitar I have been on this forum for 3 and a half years - I have accrued a number of pointless badges including some rare ones such as 3 famous links…to add to my 3 anniversaries…its a little sad to find myself asking to have my basic membership editing function restored to 14 days…I appreciate your efforts to be as transparent as possible under the circumstances and I realise that there is some kind of group consensus over these petty restrictions, but I am merely requesting that the box you displayed has 14 days restored into it…

Thank you
