Welcome to the Question2Answer Q&A. There's also a demo if you just want to try it out.

Feature Request: Only users with enough points can comment on any post

asked Jun 26, 2015 in Q2A Core by Gurjyot Singh

Currently, any user can comment on any question or answer. But this thing leads to many useless comments and even discussion is carried out by new users which is not good for any professional website.

If a permission is created for new users to comment only on their own questions and answers or on answers of their own question, till they have earned certain limit of points. This would be great for teach new users that comments is also a privilege so they should use it with care, instead of just firing comments everywhere.

This kind of thing is also implemented in Stack Overflow to stop user from miss using of comments.

Have you been able to implement it by any chance?

Sorry for this but I haven't been able to develop this. I am not good in developing plugins but I am trying... :)

So Q2A has no setting for this? It is pretty easy. And an editor-layer issue.
Simply check the user, then count comments against admin option number.
If it fails, hide the comment textarea and kill the editor completely.
