One thing that needs to be considered within our trust level system is, how new/young communities start out. Often there isn’t enough content to make the achievement of some trust levels possible. This creates a moderation hole.
I propose the following:
A community is in “young community mode” for at least twenty days. This phase is extended, if there are less than fifty users with at least one upvoted, open, undeleted post.
During that phase, the following exceptions apply:
- Every user starts with trust level 2.
- Every user has close and editing privileges.
What do you think?
