Ban members from certain categories?


(Dylan Hunt) #1

Most of our forum is pretty general. However, one part is a “forum game”. If you get caught cheating, you get banned from playing. However, we can’t actually ban them from that specific category … or can we? It’s getting hard to moderate.

EDIT: A workaround, I made a group to store the people suspended from a certain category. However, it would be great if I could natively ban people from certain categories (with the see/create/reply permission options).

I think the only way to do this would be to create a group that includes everyone who is allowed to be in the category.

It would be nice to have a negative category permission available on category security settings, e.g. “Cannot create/reply/see”. But that does not exist now.

This is 100% covered by groups, just remove the cheaters from the game group and they can’t access the category anymore.

So default put everyone in a “game” group, then REMOVE them as they are suspended? Interesting
