Pinging @/moderators or pinging individual moderators or PM’ing a moderator is an alternative.
Either click on a user’s icon and hit the “Message” button or click on your avatar at the top right, click on the envelope icon. This will take you to your mail inbox where you can create PMs.
Click on your avatar in the top right corner, click on the small person and then scroll down to Preferences. Look to the left and then click on Profile. This will bring you to a page where you can edit your profile. Make sure to save changes.
Okay and about the trust level if you could explain because I did not do anything which was required to be promoted to basic(1).
Unless the software somehow tracks it even when you don’t have an account created I dont see how I got promoted
Ok, I just read through everything very quickly, and everything my fellow moderators have said is correct.
Regarding the grace period CJW mentioned—
Users can change their names on their own if their account is less than 3 days old or they’ve never made a public post.
After that, users will have to message us with a username change request.
Yes you did, actually. You met all the criteria for basic.
If you go to your profile, just on the simmary part, you can see your stats and compare them to the requirements for TL1. You have met and exceeded a of them.
