We would like to be able to create “register” topics that have select fields, and are non-editable after posting. This is intended to be used for the “accountability” 2nd register for the finance committee of the site I’ve been working on. There are other accountability tasks that this might do well in, and we would prefer it automated to having to have admins/mods close the topic and posts to prevent editing. A separate button for Create Register like for events, or elections plugin would be the best option. There are multiple ways I can see this being executed but the biggest issue is we would like it to be automatically non-editable on register posts, have define able fields if possible so it can be used for non financial accountability tasks as well, and be relatively straight forward to use.
I also would like the plugin to be available to the discourse community as a whole, as we all can do a better job at maintaining and improving the plugin after the scope of plugin creation.
We would like this as soon as possible but have no time-frame for when it HAS to be ready. We would prefer to keep it relatively cheap as the finance committee isn’t fully functional for them yet and most expenses are being paid directly by a member and will have to be accounted when the processes are setup. I am willing to compromise on features, speed, price, and ease of development.
