What is needed until a new user can post more than a few postings per day?

Hi Moderators,

I would like to support a new member with quite a lot of answers. The new user reported that the number of postings he can make is limited and has reached the limit.

So What is needed until a new user can post more than a few postings per day?

Would sending private messages work?
Or do we have to leave the forum alone and find another channel for communication?

best regards Stefan

The new member has to get to Discourse trust level one on the forum, which is a pretty trivial matter:

Get to trust level 1 by…

  • Entering at least 5 topics
  • Reading at least 30 posts
  • Spend a total of 10 minutes reading posts

“Entering” means “looking at”, not “creating” new topics, right?

That’s the way I read it. Creating five topics would be asking rather a lot of a new user.

Correct. Enter as in “open” or “look at”.

How come I have met all these requirements and am still at basic level?

Basic is level one. Previously, you would have been a new user with more restrictions.

Thanks for clearing that up.
