by default this is not possible. you would need a mod and most likely that means paying someone to code it for you.

Huh, I remember having this discussion, or something very much like it, about 3 years ago. The conclusion was much the same then: that it's a bad idea.

It's funny, all the forum owners I know worry about not having enough posts...
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

<in my best Dr. Evil voice> One *BILLION* dollars...


Seriously, Please start posting in the correct area. You would need to ask in mod requests or help wanted - not in support

Also, Arantor is correct. This is a REALLY REALLY BAD idea.

and just open new discussions and possible?

You could always lock topics if you don't want replies.

Through the admin panel, give different groups the power to lock topics, but groups that can lock topics can also unlock topics...

Why do you need to have users be limited in the number of posts they can make?

then in the vip section I would just like to give the possibility to open discussions and not answer the topics
for the reason that people have appropriated it and do not respect the rules
So I want to set limits

p.s so I give permission to a specific group
to open new discussions and block the right answers?

You could use post moderation for the individual(s) that are a problem, for example.

Or even let topics go off topic and then split them out. All kinds of ways to tackle it.

As in, let people post as they would and if you decide the topic is too far off topic, a moderator can press split topic...

the problem that if they respond they see content protected by hide
this does not have to happen
so in that specific forum section I have to create permissions

There's another problem, hiding content from people usually ends up making worse content.

as previously mentioned in the VIP section to see content, you must reply
in that section there is a group on purpose to take advantage of the section

I would like to add a new group in that VIP section that can only create new discussions and not respond to existing discussions
so I wanted to know how to give this permission

So you need to reply to see the content. People are just going to post one word or one line answers just to see the content, assuming they bother at all.

You can certainly set up permissions to restrict who can open new topics. It's just like giving anyone else a permission in the admin panel...
