I heard that in order to officially close a topic, you need to have the “regular” rank. I think rn im considered a “member”… how do i change that?
Time and participation.
It’s factored over a (I think) 100 day period. You have to maintain a certain amount of participation in the community to get it and keep it.
I found this in another thread.
Become a Regular if in the last 100 days you:
- Visited at least 50% of days
- Replied to at least 10 different non-PM topics
- Viewed 25% of topics (capped at 500)
- Read 25% of posts (capped at 2,500)
- Received 75 likes, and given 100 likes.
You also must not have been suspended or silenced in the last 6 months or received more than 5 spam or offensive flags (with unique posts and unique users for each, confirmed by a moderator).
Please note: unlike other community levels, you can lose a Regular level if you dip below these requirements in the last 100 days, and you will be switched back to a Member level. However, there is a 4-week grace period immediately after gaining a Regular level.
I believe you need to be a leader to be able to officially close a topic
Well, you learn something new everyday. I didn’t even know this was a thing.
