remove new user status

To safeguard the community from spammers and “bots”, new users need to achieve trust so they can post freely and often. Users achieve a level of trust by creating questions and answers that are NOT flagged. If the questions or answers are up-voted (or an answer is marked as accepted), the user receives even more reputation points thus coming closer to achieveing a level of trust.

What can new users not do?

In addition to any higher level privilegs, new users cannot:

  • Cannot post multiple questions or answers within a small time frame
  • Cannot edit their own posts
  • Cannot comment on their own posts
  • Cannot edit tag descriptions
  • Cannot answer their own questions
