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).
This seems fairly logical, but let’s say that your instance has 5k users, do you have to add them all by hand? And keep updating it whenever a new user joins? I’m not certain if there is any “cheatcode” like “@everyone” when adding users to a group, doesn’t seem like it.
RIght… There isn’t a good way to ban someone from one category. It doesn’t come up often. Usually if you want to ban someone it’s from everywhere. You could at the rails console add everyone to a group and then remove the person, but it would be painful.
You could have a plugin that added everyone to a group and then had a site setting of users that you want not to be in that group.
