So when I was a basic user, I’m generally a shy person when it comes to interacting with new people, so I wasn’t much active during the first month or two when I joined. I was just going through WiP’s and getting a feel of how to forum works. Then, one day, I wanted to share an error in one of the WiP’s which other users didn’t notice by then.
But when I tried to attach a screenshot, the message saying something similar to ‘Sorry, cannot embed media in post’ popped up. I didn’t understand why this was happening. Thankfully, one of the moderators explained to me what happened.
After that, I got a bit more open and posted here and there where I believed I could chime in, and my trust level got promoted. Still, as I scrolled through various other posts in various topics, I found several new users facing my same situation.
So, instead of saying something like ‘Sorry, can’t embed media’ I think it would be helpful if the message states that the user hasn’t yet achieved the required trust level, and then display a link to the post explaining the various trust levels.
Sorry for such a long post
