Suggestion: Allow option to vet Topics posted in certain categories


(AstonJ) #1

We have several sections where it would be handy to first review the contents of Topics posted into them. Some examples:

  • A Jobs section - we’d want to verify the poster isn’t an agency, and that the template has been followed.
  • Learning Resources - we’d want to check the Topic is posted with our usual template for such resources.

On other forum platforms, this option is usually named ‘is moderated’ and is shown in the usergroup permissions page (Discourse’s equivalent is the ‘security’ tab when editing a category).

I don’t know if we offer approval per category yet but I do think it’s a reasonable thing to potentially build. And we have approval in other scenarios as well.
