I have a point system in my Q2A website. Every post gets 1 point; every reply gets 0 point; every plus gets 2 points; every minus gets -1 point.

Now, in order to prevent non-geniue users who usually post non-interesting, non-related, non-english or seemingly spam or ad posts I want allow posting only the users who have, for instance, 50 points. How can I do this?

In this scenario, newbie users need to show a good performance replying geniue answers to the questions and get more pluses in order to earn 50 points and be eligible for posting.

In Q2A there are questions, answers and comments. Posts is a general term to refer to any of them. When you talk about "replies" I think you mean "answers" and by "posts" I guess you mean "questions".

Anyway, in order to restrict adding posts by users with few points you have to navigate to admin/pemissions and change these settings:

  • Asking questions
  • Answering questions
  • Adding comments

If you select any option that has the "enough points" text you'll be prompted to input the minimum amount of points that are needed to perform the action.
