@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.
How can websockets support be disabled?
our infrastructure currently can not support websockets.
But polling websockets consumes 100% CPU, as it seems.
What is the simplest was to disable websockets completely, so that the browser stops polling?
Can you let me know more about your infrastructure, and how it cannot support websockets?
Disabling socket.io altogether will break certain functionality...
Also, long polling should not be consuming your CPU 100%. It sounds like something else is going on.
