    @ck when you see this. You should update all your plugins. Also make one that allows admin to hide disable registration, set certain users to moderate only certain sections, ban by ip, customize the tos plugin to make it so that before they enter certain forums they have to verify there age and accept tos or acceptable user policy and of course make a report plugin.

    hyperhoo, I’m kinda on a bbPress break for the summer so major updates to my plugins will be a month or two…

    “admin to hide disable registration”

    I need you to explain that a bit better.

    Per forum based moderation is something that is likely to happen in a future version of bbPress. They have added forum metadata and supposedly forum permissions and I feel that definitely should be done in the core and not via a plugin (it’s just way too complicated via a plugin)

    I may eventually include it but I always found age verification humorous, because who gives their real age on the internet? You’d be crazy to put in your real birthday into a website you have no control over because if the wrong person gets ahold of that it’s useful for social engineering. For now maybe just put in the TOS that they must be “18” or whatever age you want. If they agree to the TOS they are therefore that age. Otherwise you are collecting personal information (their birthday) and are liable for that if it falls into the wrong hands.

    “make a report plugin”

    You mean report a bad post? I’ve already done that.



    “set certain users to moderate only certain sections,”

    I just realized I completely forgot about this plugin:

    which does exactly that
