*NEW* "Members With 200+ Posts Can View Forum!"

Post by Amandeep619 on June 1st 2009, 4:13 am

Hey guys, I was wondering if we can ever have an update, which allows us, the Admins, to set up categories/forums, so that only members with 200+ Posts or a certain number of posts to only view that particular forum.

vBulletin has it, and I think that it will be a great addition to Forumotion if we had this option. This will promote users to post a lot on our forums, in order to view those "special" categories/forums.

If this update can be included, I think that many people, including me, will be in favor.


Thanks and please consider this suggestion.

Umm, heard of grouping + group permissions?

You can achieve this by making a group (hidden if u wish) and setting the permissions to this group being the only group to have access to a certain section Wink

Lols, I know what you mean and I know how to do that. But, I can't be adding so many people with 200+ Posts, so they can see that specific forums. I do want people lower than that post count to be able to see that there is a section called "Goodies" but they need 200+ Posts in order to enter it.

This is different that having groups. bwi

so...you want a feature to automatically be able to 'unlock' the special forum, without having you to do it manually?

A better option is to make someone who is allways on the forums, doing good and stuff, make him an admin and put him in charge of doing the stuff that you don't want to do.

I see what point your trying to make, since i made a thread similar to this, only my idea was password protected.

Just create a usergroup and do it manually. Voted 'no'.

I did it manually that way on my forum.
I have a hidden group that opens 3 new forums to members with over 30 posts.
for now thats the only way to do it... so I do agree, this should be done.

it can be added to rank administration...
minimum posts to get the rank and under it permissions

My point is that I would like to have people be encouraged to post for "Goodies" on the forums, when they don't know what it is/when they know it's something good.

We can't have someone Moderating this option the whole time. I, as an Admin, have a lot of responsibilities, especially when ranking people, I need to change their Rank, Usergroup, and update a Staff List.

Also, if I have to modify someone, and the forums is VERY large, then it will be close to impossible for keeping track of everyone.

So obviously, it won't do any harm to have this update...

Lol, there is part of my point. Having to change the usergroup every single time will make it close to impossible, especially, after the staff clears some of the old posts... and in a big forum, it will be even harder.

I did this . Make a thread exsplaing about the goodies room and that they will see that room as soon as they get 200 posts. It s that easy. I voted no. I would rather see a points shop more then this. sorry.

Making a thread will not work. Because most people don't "read" and things like that may be ignored by members, since it may appear as a lie, just to get more posts.

Honestly, I think that your explanation is ridiculous. There would be no harm in having this feature.
