Daily like limit


I like stuff. If people make a point, or are just funny, I like it. People like likes, I like likes.

I just ran out of likes for the day… lol


It’s a feature from the platform as well. I am guessing it is a way of avoiding spamming in some way. No worries you can show your love for posts again tomorrow.


I’m sorry, I can’t like this xD

But thank you for the quick explanation


This is from the official doc for the discourse platform. Hope it clears some doubts.

There are a few levels users can have

0 (New) → 1 (Basic) → 2 (Member) → 3 (Regular) → 4 (Leader)

Users at trust level 0 cannot…

[details=Summary]* Send private messages to other users

  • “Reply as new topic” via Link button (UI removed)
  • Flag posts
  • Post more than 1 image
  • Post any attachments
  • Post more than 2 hyperlinks in a post
  • Have actual links in the ‘about me’ field of their profile (will be silently and temporarily converted to plain text)
  • Mention more than 2 users in a post[/details]

They can get to trust level 1 by…

[details=Summary]* entering at least 5 topics

  • reading at least 30 posts
  • spend a total of 10 minutes reading posts[/details]

Users at trust level 1 can…

[details=Summary]* use all core Discourse functions

  • Upload images and attachments if enabled
  • Edit wiki posts
  • Flag posts
  • have all new user restrictions removed[/details]

They can get to trust level 2 by…

[details=Summary]* visiting at least 15 days, not sequentially

  • casting at least 1 like
  • receiving at least 1 like
  • replying to at least 3 different topics
  • entering at least 20 topics
  • reading at least 100 posts
  • spend a total of 60 minutes reading posts[/details]

Users at trust level 2 can…

[details=Summary]* Use the “Invite others to this topic” button for one-click onboarding of new users to participate in topics

  • Invite outside users to PMs making a group PM
  • Daily like limit increased by 1.5 ×[/details]

They can get to trust level 3 by…

[details=Summary]This is time and activity based, unlike the previous levels. In the last 100 days…

  • must have visited at least 50% of days
  • must have replied to at least 10 different topics
  • of topics created in the last 100 days, must have viewed 25% (capped at 500)
  • of posts created in the last 100 days, must have read 25% (capped at 20k)
  • must have received 20 likes, and given 30 likes.*
  • must not have received more than 5 spam or offensive flags (with unique posts and unique users for each, confirmed by a moderator)
  • must not have been suspended
  • These likes must be across a minimum number of different users (1/5 the number), across a minimum number of different days (1/4 the number). Likes cannot be from PMs.

All of these must be true.

Unlike other trust levels, you can lose trust level 3 status. If you dip below these requirements, whether from flagging or the passage of time, you will be demoted to Member. However, in order to avoid constant promotion/demotion situations, there is a 2-week grace period immediately after gaining Trust Level 3 during which you will not be demoted.

Users at trust level 3 can…

[details=Summary]* recategorize and rename topics

  • access a private “frequent flier’s lounge” category only visible to users at trust level 3 and higher
  • have all their links followed (we remove automatic nofollow1.1k)
  • spam flags cast on TL0 user posts immediately hide the post
  • flags cast on TL0 user posts in sufficient diversity will auto-block the user and hide all their posts
  • make their own posts wiki (that is, editable by any TL1+ users)
  • Daily like limit increased by 2 ×[/details]

And then level 4 is the mod level that can only be given by the admins.

Of course this is assuming the forum uses the default values and neither @Emily or @oldgods changed them.

Not sure on the number of likes it is set for each level at the moment.

Very enlightening. Tyvm. I did not realise it was all that.
