    PostSubject: Skypy convo   Mon Aug 17, 2015 12:42 am

    I'm moving this over here so Mel can see and participate in convo.

    [8/15/2015 12:54:42 AM] Tiffany Doan: Hey all. I've been scoping out another site, that has a lot of users, trying to see if there are things we can improve on our own site. They have a feature that blocks new users from posting in the RP areas until their application is accepted. I know how to set it up (I'm pretty sure). Is this something we would be interested in? I ask because a new user posted without their face claim being accepted. This would help us avoid that.
    [8/15/2015 4:47:08 AM] Tiffany Doan: Took my hand for a new kind of widget on the site (I was EXTREMELY bored at work tonight). It's the "MAE Staff" one. Right now it's just us that can see it. I was hoping to make it smaller by putting them on two rows instead of four, but couldn't quite figure out how. If someone wants to take a hand at it, I'd appreciate it. If not, any other thoughts?
    [8/15/2015 5:21:52 AM] Tiffany Doan: Also, tried making a links widget. Again, it's only available to us atm. Thoughts? And yes, I am THIS bored -.-
    [8/15/2015 10:57:44 AM] Taylor Flynn: Heyy!! I think that blocking new users from posting before they're ready is a great idea actually! I'd say go for it!

    And omg sorry that work has been that boring!! I haven't been able to be on lately, but I'll definitely check it out later if I can!!
    [8/16/2015 5:08:38 AM] Tiffany Doan: so! i figured out how to block users from posting in the RP areas until they're characters are accepted. since they are still sorted into the "unsorted" group when they are first made, I have gone into the RP areas and designed the permissions to not allow them to post. they can read, just as before, but it will say they don't have access to post there. 

    we do nothing different. when we approve them, and give them their group color, they will then be added into another group, which will grant them posting access. this will all simply avoid new and old users from creating characters, posting profiles, or claims, and then simply posting as the character with no admin aproval. 

    if we get into this and find it's a big problem, or we just don't like it, it's an easy 5 minute fix. let me know what you all think Smile
    [8/16/2015 11:42:37 PM] Angie: that's amazing!
    [8/16/2015 11:42:53 PM] Angie: Sorry I never replied, I was at a conference Wink

    Hope that makes sense!
