@blue-cat I imagine this best being accomplished through the reputation system. If one were to create a category called "Introductions" that did not require any reputation to post, but all other categories required some reputation, then new users would only have the option to post in the "Introductions" category. However, from what I can tell there is not currently the option to require minimum reputation before posting to categories. I hope someone has a more usable answer.
@zandertrek Not a new feature. Been around for a while. Although less than intuitive to create. I also find many low tech users confused by group chats due to being stuck in the functional fixedness of "private chat". That said, I like 'em. 👍
@zandertrek Well, I think the big win here is to stop them before they register. Afterwards is a bit late in the game, no?
Another boon to registration queue is ... I currently have a current registered user. And three additional attempts to register again under different email addresses, i.e. sock puppet/troll accounts, from same IP address. Maybe I should okay those? Ya' think? Naw... sorry charlie. 😉
There are several nice "knobs" to tweak in NodeBB, which, cumulatively, make a fairly nice layered onion. That this stuff is modular is a boon to admins: we can pick and choose what is most appropriate for our site. One size fits all approaches suck.
I see guide to deploy on heroku https://docs.nodebb.org/installing/cloud/heroku. But mLab’s Heroku Add-on was shutdown on November 10, 2020. So I tried to deploy it on heroku but I can not. Can give me guide to deploy it on heroku by free plan ?
