    Trusted User?


    I was browsing the downloads section when I noticed that it said the following at the top,
    Welcome smolloy to Linux Downloads Directory Number of forum posts: 917 Status: Trusted User
    What does trusted user refer to?

    Have I somehow been "upgraded"?

    if you have more than a certain number of posts (I don't recall the number), then you are a trusted user for the downloads directory

    Ahhh, that makes sense.

    But does being "trusted" mean anything? Does it make it simpler for me to have uploads accepted?

    Yes, your uploads are automatically accepted as a trusted user.

    Here's a link that describes it better:
