@scottalanmiller How unfortunate!
In a nutshell, perhaps something like this?
would be great!
Would be a plugin. Further details in email.
What kind of plugin?
@dibu Right now only administrators can create groups, once created they can add users to those groups and set permissions from the control panel.
Are there any plans to add this kind of feature? Is it a lot of work?
For example after user get some level of reputation he can create his own groups and invite other users to take part. But Admin also can delete all post/user/groups as needed.
This can help to build some kind of self-organized community on top of NodeBB.
such a use case would be something we'd work closely together on. Please get in touch with me at email@example.com and we can talk specifics over email or G+ Hangouts.
I'm also looking for a solution as in the first part of this topic. But I need some thing like self-organized groups. Where user can create his own group and add user to his own group and give rights to write topics and posts? Some kind of self-organized community.
I could possibly add every sub-community as a group on NodeBB. Is it currently possible to restrict visibility of certain forums to certain user groups in NodeBB? Would that be a reasonable use of groups in NodeBB?
This is already possible using the groups and permissions system, it is exactly what it was designed for.
Is it available in version 0.4 or in the latest commits on github? How can I add users to groups? Are there any docs for groups?
Can user create his own group and add user to his own group and give them rights to write to the group or read-only?
As you know, we use socket.io to power our real-time aspect.
I have a couple of questions:
