Post subject: Can an individual user be moderated?

My board has a problematic user. Many want him banned, but many others find him amusing. That puts me in a damned if I do and damned if I don't situation. He does tend to piss off some of the long-time and knowledgeable members.

Is there a way to moderate this individual user? That is, when this user posts, the post is held for approval before actually posting to the board?

Thanks.

You can install this MOD, which allows you to moderate posts of users in selected ranks. The installation time is rather high (around 2 hours), but it can be worth to install it.

From the packaged FAQ:
Quote:
Q#01: What does this MOD do?

This MOD makes it possible to prevent users from viewing the unapproved posts until the contents has been approved by the moderator(s). The MOD can be used to combat spam bots that make random posts in the public forums or for extended moderation in any forum with sensitive topics (religion, politics, etc.) where post screening is required to maintain forum integrity. The MOD is quite flexible in its settings and allows you to configure various approval options per forum.

Q#02: How can I define who can post freely and who requires approval?

This MOD is very flexible when it comes to setting the approval permissions. It allows 3 main approaches to define who is allowed to post freely and who isn't: by setting forum's approval options, by setting user/group approval permissions or by setting ranks approval option. All of these can be combined to fit more specific requirements. Additionally, there are some extra options that can affect the approval decision making, such as 'Approval for new topics only' (and not the replies to them) or 'Topic starter can approve topic posts'. All of these features are discussed in more detail in the documentation. Also, see the next two questions for the real life example of approval settings combinations.

You can even define, who can approve posts (the topic starter, for example, allowing him/her to partly moderate his own topic) and how unapproved posts (and topics) are displayed (or not, yes you can even hide them completely) to other users.

The included FAQ in this MOD's package is probably the most detailed description of any phpBB2 MOD.
