That’s the request of the post author, indeed. When the Talent Hub gets open to more members, I would like to see replies being available to members though (and using the bug report group for requesting the move to the Talent Hub category), otherwise feedback will be really limited.
Otherwise, a promotion system for regulars should come back (after these 10+ months of waiting). No matter how strict it is, it’s better to have one instead of just keeping the regulars in their bubble and having members as the “noobs in the community”. I’ve seen countless regulars with off-topic replies and unsupported claims and many “normal” members with good statements and very detailed and supported claims, that gives me a feeling like “this member deserves to be regular”.
We’ll see what the future brings us.
