Hi Morgan,
Question: the mosh pit has come to my thread. I asked Alan and he said “good idea can’t do it ask Morgan”.

What I would like to do is to start a second Mitigating the Virus thread and make me the only person who can post in it. Also I would like moderating authority to allow only approved post in the thread. The mosh pit is distracting from the information. If the information has merit that is.

So what I would do is pull the information posts out of the other thread and post up in the new thread and then delete the old thread. I have asked nicely repeatedly but nobody gets it.

Is this possible? Do you think the information has merit?

Use the permissions system per forum. You should create a new forum for this specific use.

Permissions are per User Group, Forum, and Site. Between these, you will need to research what is best for you needs.

These settings would be something you need to research as related to your forum.

HINT: Create a new user group that has access to move/merge and approve/unapprove posts for that forum. As an example, a forum moderator will be able to perform these tasks.

The moderator key items being used are:
1/ Able to approve/unapprove posts, which are specifically for the purpose you're asking for. Unapproving posts are new for UBB.threads 7.7.4.
2/ Move/merge posts.

As always, be mindful of who you give moderator permissions to thumbsup

Thanks Isaac, This guy is a serious man.
I unapproved a post a week ago and then the whole thread was gone so I had to approve it again.
Eventualy I locked the thread.
Right now I'm searching at the nonaprove but can't see it. Where is it located?

If you unapprove a post from the postlist/topiclist (the list of all threads in that forum), that will unapprove the entire thread and its replies.

Unapproving single posts are done through the EDIT POST page, per each single post.
