I dont feel that it is necessary to have to moderate requests to join the Hot Topics, however if we set it to a public group with no group leader, then people can join and leave as they want.jcroft said:James-
I believe Hot Topics is currently set up such that people have to request to join, and you have to approve it. Is this really necessary? Wouldn't just a request to join be good enough (no approval needed)?
Ahh, okay. That explains it. Sounds good, then.CrazyJames said:I dont feel that it is necessary to have to moderate requests to join the Hot Topics, however if we set it to a public group with no group leader, then people can join and leave as they want.
People removed from the group, can easily get back in by just clicking the join group dealio.
If we moderate it, we can attempt to keep people out who have proven to be problematic..
The only problem I have is that currently the functionality to add someone to the group does not work properly.jcroft said:Ahh, okay. That explains it. Sounds good, then.
I suspect this is a known bug that will probably be fixed in VB3.5 final (we're on release candidate 3) or 3.5.1. I'll go over to vbulletin.com and make sure it's in the bug list. Hopefully it'll be fixed soon. In the meantime, I guess it's fine that only admins can add/remove people.CrazyJames said:The only problem I have is that currently the functionality to add someone to the group does not work properly.
If you attempt to add them from the UserCP you will run into a SQL error trying to remove the user from the JoinRequest Queue. The user will be added to the group, but left in the queue untill you accept/deny them from the adminCP.
Which means that untill that sql script is looked at/fixed the only people who can add them to the hot-haa group are the administrators.
In the event that the full SQL error message helps youDatabase error in vBulletin 3.5.0 Release Candidate 3:
DELETE FROM usergrouprequest

Excellent, I cant wait for the ability to easily upgrade/patchjcroft said:Okay, I checked -- it's already in the 3.5 Bug Tracker. So, no need to look at the SQL I don't think. Thanks.
