Bumper Stopper

Post by Cman on July 14th 2013, 9:39 pm

A nice feature to have would be where a user could not bump a topic unless the specified period of time has passed, or someone else has already posted after them.

Is this what you are referring to - http://help.forumotion.com/t38504-automerge-double-post ?

No, it would just disallow the member to post, and would tell them to edit their previous post.  It would not bump the topic at all.

Exactly it would automatically merge the double posts.

Well, with my idea, the two posts would not merge.  This is basically the same as the linked poll, I will just vote there.

I've seen on many forums outside forumotion that automatically stops one replying to a thread if he, himself was the last to post.

Its effective in stopping double posts.

Yeah, nice feature, and besides, pure PHPBB forums has this option, and is very useful to avoid doublepost (intentioned or not)

But, one important detail: this shouldnīt affect to the Staff, because if you have for example one post where you (as Admin), post the users that became staff, is obvious that only you will post in that thread.

So, you have my vote but having count that little detail Dawa

Yes, that would be important.

I know SMF has a mod for this kind of feature.

In pure PHPBB`s you donīt need to install any mod, because this is a native option Wink

Ah yes, you are correct.  I just checked the admin panel of my test phpBB3 board.

 EDIT:  Wait, isn't that setting just for bumping the topic in general?  I'm talking about not allowing bumping by a  member who has the last post in the topic.

Erh....I donīt remember exactly, and actually I donīt have any forum where I can test the option, but I think that the option doesnīt allow you to post into a post if the last answer in the post is yours, I think.

Thatīs what you were suggesting, isnīt it?

 So, is your suggestion for an specific topic, not all topics?

The quote in your post was what I was saying the pure phpBB setting was for.  The pure phpBB setting (I think) disallows anyone to bump the topic, regardless if they have the last post or not.

What I'm suggesting would only disallow them to bump the topic if that user has the last post in the topic.  Other users would be able to bump the topic.
