When "community.nodebb.org" was updating, nginx servered a "502 Bad Gateway" text error page instead of a custom page displaying something like: "We will be back soon". I recommend that NodeBB creates a static page that is directly servered by nginx when NodeBB is down. This page should use the exact same theme as you currently have selected for your site. I think the link to nginx should be automated as much as possible (maybe ask [yes]/no permission in setup). But if it can't be there needs to be an easy tutorial on how to link nginx to this static page. The static page should be able to be overridden. It should be updated every time the theme changes. Thoughts?
I would like to see a few new options in the admin control panel:
Deny users from changing their name
Require admin approval in name changing
Allow users to change their name X times per Y time period
Always allow users to change their name
So I'd have to make multiple hits against the database to check if the following users exist:
John Frikkin Doe
John Frikkin Doe how
John Frikkin Doe how are
John Frikkin Doe how are you
John Frikkin Doe how are you today
See the problem?
I thought about this while posting the thread. I think I'll just disallow spaces in usernames
But hey, thank you for the extensive reply!
