It is a pain to have to wade through all categories - I agree.
I can't even find an option to configure what guests can and cannot do generally - or do I miss something?
Are there scripts that can do this?
Minimum reputation setting for categories
Currently categories have detailed customizable persmissions based on groups. I imagine it would be very useful to add reputation as a means for determining access to categories. Does this already exist? Perhaps I've overlooked something?
I see now how reputation can be used as a means for determining access to particular categories. It exists.
- Create a group
- Create a reward that will add users to the group when they achieve a certain level of reputation
- Limit the privileges of the category to the group
The question then becomes, how do I grandfather thousands of users into the group, based on their reputation or number of posts? The reward system will automatically take care of new arrivals, but that does me little good without including those who've earned their reward months and years ago.
