How to restrict abilities during formal warning

I'm looking for a mod that will allow me to basically put members in a group that will restrict their abilities and what they can do while they are on a formal warning(A warning that can be set through the Warning System).

You could make a new group with whatever permissions you want, then move a member to that group when needed. I am not sure if there is a plugin for this you could try searching

I have already looked around.

And if a member was receiving a formal warning and a moderator was issuing it, they would need access to the Admin CP to move them.

Make two forums in your admin section call them User Infractions and Post Reporting then go to admincp/settings/options/User Infractions & Post Reporting Options then when a mod gives a infraction you will know and do what is needed to the member

I already have it set up like that. However if a member is being given a formal warning, it's something that I would not like sitting around if an Admin can not get to it.

How would an admin not get to it when they can see the post made about it

Don't know if you mean the mod, member or admin but that does not matter the post won't go away and it can be talked about when they are on. Its not as you are in a rush and besides the post should give whatever info/reason why the infraction was given

I'm talking about the Admin.

Force, you're missing my point. If it is a serious violation that warrants limited access with a formal warning but not yet a ban, then it should be sitting there if it is something of a concern.



Hmm, I thought of maybe having it setup where mods could move the members into a restricted warning group like a mod tool, but it just seems better to have it all in one swoop.

It is unclear what you are looking for as I am reading through this thread. I would try not reinventing the wheel here as this does not seem to be a big issue with the average board. I think @ForceHSS did a pretty good job of directing you to a possible solution.

My discovery for this topic turned up nothing relevant so you may wish to reword your question, as it may help attract more germane responses.

do you mean like when a member gets a certain amount of reports combined by reported posts that they would instantly go into another usergroup for a certain number of days...

thats a good idea!!!

It would lighten the monitor time for sure

Why not allow your moderator's to do their jobs via Modcp and move the members into a restricted warning group. Then they do not need acp access

Um...

Create a usergroup, with the *limited* permissions you want, then:
User Infractions > Add New User Infraction Group

Set Points equal to the amount of points users get when they "seriously" violate a rule.
Change Primary Usergroup to the usergroup you made with limited permissions, and set Override display to yes?

What's wrong with doing it that way?

I'm also assuming by "Warnings" you either mean 0 point infractions, or just mean infractions. In either case, if it's a *serious* issue, then the user should actually get an infraction.

No, just by certain warnings.

Because should an Admin not be on, the mods are able to do it. Looks like the reply below might have found something.

What I mean is informal warnings, like PM's, not anything through the infraction system. Once it gets to where I send a warning through the system, it would be considered a formal warning with limitations. Nevertheless, I'll try this out.
