Our forum moderators determined that they’d rather have the community invite the ‘moderators’ group to a topic that needs attention as opposed to creating a post, and using
However, this is the error message that pops-up when I try to invite the moderators group:
Initially thought that “rate limited” referred to how many users I could invite in a 24-hour period, but as a “Regular”, I tested this theory by inviting 20+ users to a topic within several minutes.
Perhaps “rate limited” could also refer to how many users can be invited in one-go but our moderators group consists of a measly 14 users.
Another theory I had was that one of the users, “system”, couldn’t be invited, but that theory proved wrong too. I tested inviting each moderator individually to a topic to make sure that it wasn’t a problem with their account but it seems to be fine (I could manually invite all the moderators).
The forum that we’re using doesn’t use email for accounts, but is linked and created by another account unique to each user.
Unfortunately we don’t have another group on our forum, so I can’t see if I can invite other groups besides moderators. And the admin is never active, so it’s hard to get into contact.
I just noticed that most Discourse forums don’t have the
Invitefeature for normal topics, just messages. However, would the behavior of a ‘normal’ topic and a message be the same?
Thanks in advance.
