Introducing Members Who Can Post: Trusted Members

15 posts in this topic

KL Community,

 

Myself, @Lord Kingdom and @Lord Rorschach are thrilled to announce a big update to the site... an initiative to get more of you involved in helping us post downloads. Without further ado, we introduce Trusted Members!

 

This initiative was sparked by our realization that we have many active and regular members who have said they are eager to contribute more to the site, but they can't necessarily sign on to the commitment and responsibilities of a Staff member. In an effort to prioritize posting new content and to better utilize the power of our community, we have worked since mid-Spring to design and develop this system.

 

As of this post, we are still in the BETA stage on this system. For the time being, we will be handpicking a few people to kick off the program. In a couple weeks, we will release applications to everyone who meets the requirements. Below is a snippet of the Trusted Members Wiki.

 

What is a Trusted member?

A Trusted member is a user who has been vetted, tested, and approved by Administrators to post downloads for Kingdom Leaks. These members are distinguished as Trusted with a  next to their username. Trusted is NOT a separate user class, and Trusted members are NOT Staff members.

 

Why become a Trusted member?

Kingdom Leaks is a community-driven website. Without our community, we could not keep up with all the music there is to post on a daily, even hourly, basis. The Trusted position is meant for active and regular members of our community who are eager to contribute more to the site but can't necessarily sign on to the commitment and responsibilities of a Staff member. This position is not meant for everyone (see below for requirements).

 

What privileges does a Trusted member have?

A Trusted member is permitted to create topics in all the main download forums such as Post-Hardcore, Alternative Rock, Indie, etc.. A Trusted member is allowed at most four (4) topic posts per day. These topics must be approved by an Administrator before they go live. A Trusted member must also strictly adhere to the Kingdom Leaks file-naming and posting format, which you see each time to download a file.

This is great! But seeing how there may be an influx of material being posted on KL, as a suggestion It would be nice if we could have genre filters, for the main page. The ability to search by as many as 5 genres, or more. It would make sifting through KL on leak day so much more easier.

We don't anticipate a huge surge of content as we are limiting the amount of Trusted members.

 

Unfortunately our system does not allow for this sort of real-time filtering. There are other ways you can customize what you see, although they may not be perfect.

 

Try this out: https://kingdom-leaks.com/index.php?/search/&q=2019&type=forums_topic&nodes=22,23,65,24,27,26&sortby=newest&search_and_or=and&search_in=titles&page=1

 

You can select which genres you want to see posts from and from how long ago (the past week/24hrs/month). 

 

There is also Latest Downloads, which is pretty great especially if you want to do less scrolling on leakdays. You can CTRL+F/CMD+F different genres on here, too.

I wanna do this, not because I'd post a lot, but because I want the little check mark.

This change is exciting and a great direction from the site overall. Being a member of staff can be tough given life's other commitments; trusted members can exist in a comfortable middle ground. New forms of sharing music are always intriguing.

This will probably spur a lot of people into becoming more active and contributing more to the site.

Great work!
