Deactivate replies from users


(Pau Minoves) #1

I’m investigating the features of discourse to setup a moderated community. My goal would be:

  • Registration is mandatory.
  • All registered users can post a new topic.
  • Only users within a concrete group (call it Experts) can reply to topics.
  • Bonus track if the replies can be limited to one.

Alternatively, this other setup could also work:

  • Registration is mandatory.
  • All registered users can post a new topic.
  • All registered users can reply to a topic
  • Replies from users within a concrete group (call it Experts) are automatically pinned and show up on top of the page, next to the topic.
  • Replies from other users follow after.
  • Bonus track if the replies of the experts can be limited to one.

I’m installed discourse to play with the configuration options but I fail to see how I can get a setup like the two above.

Any hints are welcome. Thanks!

This looks like a support question.

All of this is possible by configuring categories permissions and approving or inviting users - or perhaps configuring your own SSO.

This is absolutely right. No way to limit number of replies per user thought.

Thanks.
