Limit file uploads by trust level


(Alexander Wright) #1

I have an awkward user who uploads large images. Is it possible to restrict file uploads by trust level, or ban uses from uploading?

Lots of images or just one at a time? In PMs or public topics?

One at a time in public topics.

This user has a bee in his bonnet about a particular issue, and uploads an image of text in it.

While I can obviously just delete them, it would be easier if they couldn’t do it to start with.

It’s not possible, but you could ask them not to? Maybe even suspend them for a week if they don’t listen?

That’s possible, but has political implications. It’s a community of volunteers, and they react better to “computer says no” than to a direct confrontation.

That said, noone else has tried it. :grinning:
