I'm looking into moving our gaming guild to nodebb but to do so I'm looking for a feature that is something like an approval system for new users.
Among the lines of: New user fills a form and existing users can ask questions so the new applicant can answer to those before he gets the approval to join.
If you know guildwork.com - it as this type of approval system - for those who want to take a look there you can create a new account without email verification to see how this could look like from the backend.
Editing the post is open to the OP so moderator messages could be faked or changed. Moderator comments would be a fairly good way to put it perhaps, but they would be surfaced as part of the OP not further down the reply thread.
In case anyone decides to work on that topic: I would really love to see a light version of the Teamspeak widget, that is, without detailed information on clients.
The reason is that I have to deal with a very restrictive rented Teamspeak server where ServerQueries are limited to 10 per 3 seconds (no possibilty to add domains to the whitelist).
Two requests, one for clientlist and one for channellist, would be enough to create a basic viewer layout.
Also, caching the requests so that multiple concurrent page views don't trigger a server flood alert would be great.
I had a look at the widget from @pitaj, but unfortunately my programming skills are rather low😢.
