#701 closed enhancement (wontfix)

moderate groups

Reported by: bloom's profile bloom Owned by:
Milestone: 1.5 Priority: major
Severity: Version:
Component: Core Keywords:


I think there would be some value to the ability to moderate new group creation based on keywords. Specifically, I want to be sure to have the chance to review/approve/deny new groups with curse words, "hate", "mad", "angry" etc, the name to be sure that it wasn't something completely inappropriate before having to remove it from the site (and thereby causing an uproar with our college student users). I'd be fine letting all other groups auto-create when the user submits the form.

Worst case, the ability to moderate all group creation, much like the blog moderation plugin, would be nice.

I'd like to see something like this too.

Will need to look, but I think group creation runs though the restricted names box in site admin. If it doesn't, that would be a good fix.

  • Status changed from new to closed

I don't like the idea of checking against the restricted names box (if by that you mean the MS-only "Banned Names" field on the Super Admin options panel). For one thing, it's MS-only. For another, I can imagine circumstances in which you'd want to forbid certain names for groups but allow them for blogs, or vice versa.

IMO this is plugin territory. I believe that all the necessary hooks during the group creation and admin process are already there.
