Activating approval in a topic that is not current

Hello. I am looking for a solution that allows us to make a topic needing approval if the latest post in that topic is n days old, disregarding the user’s trust level. Is it currently possible to do this?

What I mean:

  • User creates a topic.
  • Topic has posts as usual.
    • Some trust levels do not need approval for their posts in this topic.
  • Last post in the topic is now n days old and the option is triggered.
  • If any user -regardless of their trust level- makes a new post in this topic, moderators will be informed (with “requires approval”).

It doesn’t exactly meet what you are asking for, but you can partially accomplish this by using the auto-close setting in a category to close the topic X hours after the last reply:


Users could then flag the topic for re-opening.


Thank you. I proposed this to our moderators and waiting their answer.
