There’s been a few mentions here and there of a forum category for moderators and users at trust level 3. I want to know where it went. Here’s what I managed to track down (and believe me, it was not easy. I had to go all the way to the main Discourse site!)
The brief description of the Regular badge states:
You can now recategorize and rename topics, take advantage of more powerful spam flags, access a private lounge area, and you’ll also get lots more likes per day.
The Understanding Discourse Trust Levels blog post, linked to in multiple places, says this:
Upon transition to trust level 3, users are sent a longer form PM describing their new abilities and inviting them to the lounge category to meet their fellow TL3 community members.
Users at trust level 3 can…
…Access a secure category only visible to users at trust level 3 and higher
Here’s what I found in the Discourse Moderation Guide:
The Lounge: The lounge is a default category on all Discourse installs restricted to users TL3 or above. The lounge is a great place for the moderator team to communicate with the site’s trusted users. These users should be encouraged to share their thoughts and concerns with the site staff within this category.

So, where did it go? If somebody stole it, please give it back. I’ve been a Regular for months now and I want some privileges!
