What trust levels does the forum have?
You get this level when you first log in on the Developer Forum through your Roblox account.
As a Visitor, you are able to view almost all categories of the forum, including announcements, development support topics, all sorts of resources and tutorials, as well as bug reports and feature requests that have been submitted by forum members.
You are not yet able to post, but you can browse posts and topics. We also keep track of which posts you have visited and read, and you can bookmark topics and posts that you find interesting.
To level up to Member, you need to read enough posts over a period of time. After enough browsing, you will be automatically moved up to the Member level.

Promotions from Member to Regular are on hold until the criteria are updated, since Post Approval has been removed in September 2020.
As a Member, you now get to view and post in almost all forum categories. Note that some posts and topics you make will need to pass through approval before they show up to others.
To level up to Regular, you need to make sure you (1) use to the forum appropriately according to our community rules and guidelines, (2) have made a few posts on the forum, (3) visited the forum for several weeks and
(4) you need to pass through post approval several times successfully. You will be automatically promoted to Regular once you meet the criteria and have a clean moderation history.
As a Regular, you can now create posts and replies in all categories, as you have shown that you know how to make these topics according to forum rules and guidelines.
Editors are veteran community users that can edit post titles and recategorize topics. They will only use these powers to support the community, e.g. when a topic is incorrectly categorized, or the topic title is unclear or has some mistakes that could be corrected.
Leaders are certain Roblox staff members and highly-trusted community users that can (in addition to Editor permissions) also edit post contents, lock and hide topics, and merge replies to other topics. They may use these abilities to make the forum easier to browse and improve the flow of discussion.
Leaders cannot see nor handle community flags on posts. Only @DevEngagementTeam can handle community flags.
