Userlevel

Overview

The two main goals of the the user levels system are:

  • First to reduce the power of some very annoying people who do more harm than good to AniDB, or are just a pest to deal with
  • Second to give some trustworthy users more responsibility in areas where they might be useful to the whole of AniDB. This is meant to speed up the process of creqs and keep the overall quality of the ever increasing data constant and maybe improve it even.

To achieve those goals, a user level system was implemented. Every user has a primary role, and can also gain secondary role(s).

Possible primary roles are: (sorted from lowest to highest)

  1. Sub. Tard
  2. Tard
  3. Newbie (unused)
  4. Beginner (unused)
  5. Sub. User
  6. User
  7. Advanced User
  8. Mod
  9. Senior Mod
  10. Admin

Primary Roles

Primary Roles (Demotions)

Level -2 - Sub. Tard

Users who have shown they are incapable to be of any use to anyone, and are also annoying/disrespectful/rule-breaking/etc on the forums, end up here. This level is manually enforced by mods.

Level 1 - Beginner (currently inactive)

1 week has passed and if they are still interested in AniDB (actually if they were from the start they will stay) they advance to the next level.

They still get their rights restricted compared to normal users, because they:

Restrictions

  • can't add new files, anime, episodes or anything else to AniDB

Level 2 - Sub. User

Sub. Users have rights revoked from them, generally due to poor behaviour such as abuse of privileges, breaking the rules, adding very bad data and not taking steps to improve, ignoring requests from mods, etc.

Rights

  • moderate user (delete accounts)

Secondary Roles

All secondary roles skip the need for a creq where it would be required; the change may be filed as a mod edit instead. So, where it says an anime maintainer can edit anime, it is implied that an anime maintainer can edit anime with changes going through as mod edits instead of regular creqs; in essence, they're mod rights insofar as the actions described for each role are concerned.
