Allow moderators to break topic title rules


(Patrick Klug) #1

If I, as the owner of my forum, want to post a topic with a cryptic title, it would be nice if discourse would let me do that without having me go and change a global setting first.

A “Yes” button, or a “I know what I’m doing” button would be nice here.

Not possible, all the validation paths will fail later (say, when someone tries to edit the first post body) if the title doesn’t validate.

fair enough. I just temporarily changed the rule to get it around it.

It’ll fail to edit later if anyone tries to edit it, will be the main side effect.
