Monopolizing Conversations

Post by Gideon5L2F »

Is there any way of controlling a poster from monopolizing conversations? Automated I mean?

For example a poster that floods a topic with an excessive number of relies?

Thanks

You could set it up so he can't post until a few minutes after posting. (I'm assuming your talking about a large board here.)

No, Im refering to the sort of member who dominates discusions with 10 times more replies (often trivial) than anyone else. I saw a mod once that limited the number of posts (for an individual member) per day.

Better still would be the ability for a moderator to set on a per topic basis 'x' number of other replyers before a member can reply again. (Exception being the person who made the opening post.)

Heh, maybe Im whistling for the moon. :roll:

Afaik, the only way to acheive a simmilar function with phpBB3 is to set a high flood intervall and allow trusted groups to ignore the flood intervall.

You might also want to check out the Moderation queue feature, you can set it so that topics/posts will not show untill a moderator approves of the topic/post. This will achive the "trivial post removal" as you would like but it's not automated, so it will take a medium to high ammount of work.

Good idea for a MOD though.

I might wait till Olympus comes out then put it up as a suggestion in the appropriate forum.

Can it be arranged so that only certain members are subject to queue moderation - not the entire group or forum? This would save a lot of work for mods because often it is only a minority of members whose posts require scrutiny.

Yes, and it can be set on a per-forum basis as well.

Have fun. :D
