How to disable PM for users with certain post count

Hi.

I want that new users with less than 15 posts can't use signature and can't send PM to other forum members.

What is best possible way to do this in VB4 ?

Thank you!

Go to Usergroup Manager > Add New Usergroup
Create Usergroup Based On - Registered Usergroup > Go
Give it a new name - Whatever
Create Permissions Based off of Usergroup > Registered Usergroup
Save

Now make a Promotion (Usergroups > Promotions)
Add New
Usergroup - Registered Users
Posts - 15
Promotion Strategy - Posts
Type - Primary
Move to - Whatever
Save

Usergroup Manager - go to edit Registred Users
Set the permissions you want for new users regarding signature and PMs
Save

Lynne,

or anyone else. Say you have an existing forum and your edit the Registered Users and create the New User Group and a Promotion...is there a way to move the existing Registered Users to that New UserGroup? I just want to apply the restrictions to the new members....and can't figure out how to move the existing users. Thanks for your help

I have written a mod for the pm thing. You can find it by clicking the link in my signature.

If you create a promotion, you can run it manually in the Scheduled Task Manager and it should move all existing users to the new group.

Hi Lynne, quick question regarding post #2. How do you only move regular members and not your mods? I implemented this and luckily kept an eye on it as all my mods were starting to be demoted to regular users. They all thought I canned them from the job!

Can you please let me know how this can be done?

Actually I just figured out a solution for this (I hope).

Right now all our mods are primary users with "secondary" mod privileges. I can switch the mods to become all primary mods and then have no secondary privileges. Then When I implement the above promotion, it will only move those primary users (and not mods) to the desired usergroup.

I guess the question is, what is the difference between having a mod as a primary or secondary user? Or is there any?

It's all a matter of how you set up your site. I know I like to only use a couple Primary Usergroups - Registered, Registered Plus, Super Mods, Admins. That sets up all my basic permissions for everyone. Then I use the Secondary groups to just add to those permissions. But, everyone sets their sites up a bit different because of how they like it to work.
