Limit number of posts per day for specific users

Post by djwins »

It would be nice if there was a way to put users on probation or something and limit the number of posts they were able to make in a day.

I agree this would be very useful as an intermediate step before banning a user. Can anyone help? I don't know how to write mods but I imagine it could be fairly easy for an advanced user.

I am currently working on a mod to do this, but since im still a beginner with the code, im having trouble getting all my loose ends to meet, im trying to limit the number of posts in each forum, catagory, and each topic, having an edit count as a post for the limits, have admin overide so the admin/mods can excede the post count. If anyone has a mod that already does this it would help alot...I'm really getting bogged down with some of the other mods im trying to create.... :)

Thanks,

Honest(Matthew)

Yes - this seems like it should be standard for phpbb! I have one member who is posting an insane amount of threads - it would be useful to cap him, but not everyone else! The only current option is to enable flood control (every X seconds for all users) ..

Is there anything currently in development??

do we want mods to be able to set the limits for certain users, or just admin?

also, do we want the limit to apply to private messages? or should this just be an option?

As long as it limits a user's activity on a phpbb in general - that would do for me!

Im not concerned with PM limit.... I just need it so that I, admin, and not moderators, could limit certain user to, say, 2 posts per day in the whole forum. In the next 24 hrs he can post next 2 msgs... and so on until he learns not to post stupid msgs in inlimited quantities.. :twisted:
