- do not show answer button if spam-limit exceeded
- normal users are not allowed to edit posts after x min
- edit time frame: 5 min (300s) for questions/comments + 20 min (1200s) for answers
- questions cannot be reopened, only admin
- Expert: allowed to edit own answers and all questions
- Editor: can edit all posts in forum, but not admin posts
- admin has all rights
- only experts, moderators, admins can close questions

Hope that helps.

@q2apro.com its nice plugin.

How i add for moderator only edit and hide question. For QA_USER_LEVEL_EDITOR i add this code. Its nice work.

// Redakteur (highest level)
        else if ($level==QA_USER_LEVEL_EDITOR) 
            // can edit all posts in forum, but not admin posts
            $rules['editable'] = $rules['editbutton'] = $rules['hideable'] = ($post['userid']!=1);
            // can clear flags
            $rules['clearflaggable'] = ($post['flagcount']>=(@$post['userflag'] ? 2 : 1));

after  $rules['editable'] i add $rules['editbutton'] = $rules['hideable'] its nice work.

And i add for Moderator add 

if ($level==QA_USER_LEVEL_EXPERT) 
            // allowed to edit own answers and all questions
            // time frame: allow edit after 5 min and up to 7 days (604800 sec), can edit his own answer immediately
            $rules['editable'] = $rules['editbutton'] = $rules['hideable'] =
                ($rules['isbyuser'] || $post['type']=='Q') // can edit his own post and all questions in forum
                    && (!isset($post['closedbyid'])) // post is not closed, if closed it must be of user to let him edit or Redakteur-Level
                        && ($post['userid']!=1); // never allow question-posts of admin to be edited

but its not work.

I find it. Thanks.
I add

            $rules['editable'] = $rules['editbutton'] = $rules['hideable'] = true;

after // admin has all rights code

Hi. Thanks for the effort.
I think your plugin has a little problem.
I installed it on my test site.
And it changed what I had selected in "posting"


I tried to fix but still the same user can add more than one answer per question. The standard editor has also been changed.
Note: I do not activated the plugin or modified options. I have just installed and then uninstalled it and my site was back to normal.
Can you give some more details, it is not clear what exactly is the problem with the editor?

"the same user can add more than one answer per question." - Oh, you are right, just now I see that there is a problem. This was due to calling the base function with parameters set "=null". I have fixed that now, line 16: https://github.com/q2apro/q2apro-userrules/blob/master/q2apro-userrules-overrides.php

One bug. The $rules['closeable']  should consider if qa_opt('allow_close_questions')  option.

so it should be

// experts, moderators, admins can close questions

$rules['closeable'] = ( qa_opt('allow_close_questions') && $level>=QA_USER_LEVEL_EXPERT && !$rules['closed'] );
