I need to "mark" certain users with a flag (they register not directly in my q2a forum but register on another site, both are linked).
My idea of best practice:
1. Edit qa-config.php
2. Add my custom flag: define('QA_USER_FLAGS_EXTREG', 1024);
However, I would run into problems if new flags are added to the core. The recent flags are 1 - 512, see qa-include\app\users.php
So now I am wondering if I should take a very high number to avoid this issue - or if there is another way?
(I could create an extra table to log those, but it would be overkill...)
Idea for my scenario: Maybe I could use the field "sessionsource" in table "qa_users" and set it to my custom site - instead of using the flags?!
Another way would be to user the qa_usermeta table and add a custom field, but again, it might be overkill...
