Did you know there’s a secret area on the forums? There’s an entire category that’s hidden from the general public. No, it’s not meant to be shady. It’s a place that only the most active forum users get access to. It’s earned through the system’s “trust levels,” and it takes a few months of activity to acquire.

There aren’t a lot of members who have access to the lounge area yet, as the requirements for the category are quite strict. Here is what it takes to enter:

  • Must have visited at least 50 days in the last 100 days
  • Must have replied to at least 10 different topics
  • Must have received 20 likes & been given 30 likes

When these requirements & a few additional ones are met, you’ll be given a badge next to your name, and unlock the additional lounge category. As of now there are very few users who qualify for the tag. It can also be lost!

Be sure to check the forums often to easily meet these requirements. If you’re not active, today is a good day to start. I look forward to seeing more users in this area & we can surely find ways to collaborate through this!
