How to Delete "Lounge" Category?

How do you delete the lounge category?

Also - Trust Level 3 seems to allow users to modify the titles of topics - can I turn off that feature?

Thanks.

Delete the lounge category the same way you’d delete any other category – make sure there are no topics in the category (if there are, delete them), click edit on the category, then delete it.

I wonder if the seed will recreate it though

No, @neil said it will not. I believe what does not work is changing the permissions on Lounge, I think that will get overridden every time if you try that.

Just to circle back and confirm - I deleted the Lounge category, just updated, and it was not recreated.

Changing permissions now works, and won’t be reverted the next time you upgrade. Basically, the Lounge category is now created once and then you can delete it or change it however you want.
