I'm playing with v1.3 and was just wondering. I saw the user title thing, which is based on points. Can you set permissions based on user titles/points?
by
If you give moderator and above permissions based on point then it might be misused because it is easy to earn points just by answering questions.

anyone can edit or delete questions/answers when they go to next level.
by
Yes it would only be up to editor-level for the points-based permissions. But it's not trivial to "just answer questions", you have to get the answers right of course ;)

It's not possible currently but certainly a consideration for future versions.

In the meantime you could modify the code to upgrade somebody to an 'Expert', 'Editor' or 'Moderator' based on their points. All changes to a user's points go through function qa_db_points_update_ifuser(...) in qa-db-points.php, so at the end of that function you could run a little DB query which sets the user's level in qa_users based on their points in qa_userpoints (taking care not to mess up admins and the like!)

OK thanks. I already made some users moderators manually so I'll stick with that for now.
