As a newbie I was a bit gobsmacked after a month exploring Discourse to realise that there was no per-forum moderation. This feature from @eviltrout only seems to be useful if the forum is set to have all posts reviewed before being made visible.
The real issue is being able to have someone able to proactively deal with troublesome posts after they have gone up, without having to have all posts held for review before they appear. That implies edit, delete etc permissions just like someone set as a global moderator.
I’d also like to go a step further and have something analogous to the Owner of a security group who was able to do most of the editing functions on a specific category that currently can only be done by someone with full admin privileges.
Or is there a plugin I haven’t found yet that allows this. It seems very odd to make basic tweaking of a category’s name, description, colours, images, topic template and tags only possible by a full deity.
