Here’s a new plugin that might be useful if you are running a large community:
This plugin prevents users from bumping their own topics. On some higher traffic forums, if a user doesn’t receive replies to their topic they will reply to themselves (bumping) repeatedly to gain visibility.
When enabled, a user will need to wait for a different user to reply to their topic before they can reply again.
Staff members can always bump their own topics
no bump enabled- set to true to enable the plugin
no bump trust level- users at this trust level (and lower) will not be allowed to bump their topics
