Currently it is counter intuitive on how trust levels work. Currently, if you have a low trust level, you are unable to edit posts, even if it’s your own.
This really doesn’t make much sense, because it punishes users that want to edit their post to reduce clutter.
For instance, lets say there is a user named Jim.
Jim is a good programmer, and frequently tak ees jobs and gets new experience in different areas.
Jim doesn’t use ConnectDev for discussion or reading, and only uses it for getting hired, so he is the lowest trust level.
He wants to add a sneak peak from a project he is working on, but instead can’t add it to his portfolio because he is still the lowest trust level. Instead he has to make a reply, which bumps the topic, and also may clutter it depending on how many times he has to do this.
I know you want to avoid being an exact copy of the devforum, but the devforum works for a reason. Don’t try to reinvent the wheel with some of these trust level requirements, when the devforum has been proven to work.
