Double post prevention

After I built one of the new gas turbines I tried to leave a little feedback in a post on the thread I created a few days ago, but after typing out the post I wasn’t allowed to submit it as the last post in the thread was one I had left the day before. My only option was to edit the new post into the existing one. There’s been no reaction to it in 2 days, and I’m starting suspect it’s because edits don’t trigger a notification to other participants in the thread. I’m not sure that this behaviour is helpful.

Is there any chance than the double post prevention could be tweaked slightly?


This was supposed to be fixed a while ago since @SuperCoder79 had the Issue with his Mod too.

Uhhm @OvermindDL1 so why exactly isn’t this fixed?


My issue was mostly with new replies instead of new posts, that’s why it might be different?


I’m pretty sure that only allowed it for Level 3 members and higher as level 2 and below are easily acquirable by spammers where Level 3 and higher actually requires fairly routine engagement and community interaction. Otherwise if it is bugged then tell:

For note, the tier 3 requirements are (copy/pasted from the docs):

To get to trust level 3, in the last 100 days…

  • Must have visited at least 50% of days
  • Must have replied to at least 10 different topics
  • Of topics created in the last 100 days, must have viewed 25% (capped at 500)
  • Of posts created in the last 100 days, must have read 25% (capped at 20k)
  • Must have received 20 likes, and given 30 likes.*
  • Must not have received more than 5 spam or offensive flags (with unique posts and unique users for each, confirmed by a moderator)
  • Must not have been suspended or silenced

* These likes must be across a minimum number of different users (1/5 the number), across a minimum number of different days (1/4 the number). Likes cannot be from PMs.

And an admin can check their current standings at:

In addition, Greg can manually bump and force someone to TL3 or higher manually too. :slight_smile:


Oh right, Regular was the Level, not Member. XD

Promoted you to that since I know you existed before these Forums were there.


Ah, thanks. Is the level sticky, or will it fade in 100 days? (I feel it’s very likely I won’t read 25% of the threads created, as I’d probably only read suggestion threads that really interest me and support threads if I’ve had the same issue.)


Should be sticky afaik.
