Replies in the Freelancing
Posted 09 March 2006 - 06:33 AM
But it seems lately that the mods aren't maintaining it like they used to. They used to edit every post with a message explaining to users that they should not post replies and that they should contact the author of the post via an email or by pm.
It seems that they are not editing these posts anymore and the replies are building up.
I just wanted to see what was going on and if anybody else gets aggravated by this.

thanks for expressing the concern!

I can understand how difficult it must be to keep up with all the posts that are being posted. A suggestion might be to get some more moderators, but that is probably up to phpfreak.
Anyways, thanks for taking care of the freelancing section and all the sections for that matter.

Two solutions - 'more' activity by moderators (who occasionally have real lives); or - if it's possible with IPB - apply a tweak to that (sub)forum to prevent replies altogether, i.e. a read-only forum. That would be my preferred solution as it's passive and needs no moderators to control the people who can't read/don't care.

I've thought of that - maybe automatically lock a thread after the first post?
Then the user would have to get a mod to unlock it in order to bump it, though...

Another way would be to only let the member who posted the topic originally edit and add new replies. This probably wouldn't be too difficult to implement. Just add some code to disable the reply button unless you are a mod or the topic starter.
