If you get 5 flags, will you lose regular?


#1

So, I've had 4 flags, and I was wondering: if I have one more, will I just lose my regular badge? @liza I'm really confused about this but if anyone could help, that'd be good, too!

Here's a topic on trust levels you might want to see: http://forum.gethopscotch.com/t/what-are-trust-levels-faqs/1003?u=giraffedolphin26
I don't know if you've already seen it or not, but it might help!

@sam @codinghorror I'm not sure about this one. I did find this:

'Unlike other trust levels, you can lose trust level 3 status. If you dip below these requirements, whether from flagging or the passage of time, you will be demoted to Member. However, in order to avoid constant promotion/demotion situations, there is a 2-week grace period immediately after gaining Trust Level 3 during which you will not be demoted.'
Which would suggest 5 flags = demotion, but I've seen some people get 5 flags and stay regular.

Kind of. It's that many spam or offensive flags. Usually things are flagged due to being off-topic, so you should be fine.
