Hey, I run a membership site which uses Discourse for the forums (via SSO). On my main site, members have their own accounts, profiles, etc.
Currently, members can temporarily suspend their main profiles, which is fine. When that happens, I also ‘suspend’ their Discourse profiles, with this message: “This member has chosen to temporarily suspend their profile.”
Question: is this the best way to handle this? Is there some other mechanism to “pause” a Discourse account (because the member behind it has chosen to temporarily not engage)? Currently the suspension message shows in Discourse as a big red RED MARK! which it totally shouldn’t be in this case; obviously Suspension was built as a Discourse feature for punishment, but this isn’t a negative situation.
Would love to hear any thoughts, general musing, ideas, see some cute kitten GIFs…
