Disable url and picture for membergroup
« on: July 22, 2018, 04:53:05 AM »
I am searching for this kind of mod. I've seen some SMF already done this in the past (they permit only upgraded member). So I know this kind of mod exist. But searched recently, havn't find one yet.

Why? It just discourages people from posting good posts. Either they won’t bother or will post the bare minimum to get what they want.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

No good deed goes unpunished / No act of charity goes unresented.

its a bad idea, as Arantor said...   so much of a bad idea that the one mod which existed for it has not been updated since 1.1.2 (and won't work on 2.0.x)

@Yunpee: Are you trying to force people to use the code tag to encode every URL instead of just using the image or URL tag?

no...   the OP is trying to keep anyone who is not previously approved from posting any link or any image.

Yes but for specific membergroup, preventing some crazy guy to post vast amount of link and image per post, which will uneccessary worsen SEO. Or at least limit url per post to only first one and unlink the latter.

again...   people seem to be looking for technical solutions to social problems - instead of addressing the social problem itself

I love this sentence... it actually addresses the true nature of the problem.

So, can this be marked as solved?

Actually, I already use that mod before posting this topic (but not satisfy with its feature as the post counts doesn't indicate each member's role in the forum). So the problem still not solved.

What really counts is about membership group. If no known existing woys or mods can do this. I'll better have this topic in
Mod Requests (which is for what not already exist) instead, maybe?

there are no known mods to do this....


why not? Well,m because doing this is not recommended and will likely drive users away from your site.

You are yet another person trying to solve a social problem with a technical solution - and it just won't work.
