The devs like github issues At least for issues that occur on master.
EDIT: to keep the reference: gh#4193ds-terrytate created this issue in NodeBB/NodeBB closed Error write EPIPE when trying to approve user in registration queue #4193
Im trying to make a moderator applications category where users can create their own posts, access their own posts, and reply to their own posts, but ONLY their own posts. They wouldn't be able to see others posts or interact with them in any way. Moderators would still be able to access posts from everyone. Is this only possible with a plugin because i wasn't able to get something working with the current permissions system.
You need to use something like https://github.com/julianlam/nodebb-plugin-support-forum
