Minimum credit to post

You can require that users have a minimum amount of credit to post on a forum using the following database fields:

forum.post_min_expavg_credit
users must have this amount of average credit to post on the forum
forum.post_min_total_credit
users must have this amount of total credit to post on the forum
There is currently no web interface for these; you have to set them manually using mysql or phpMyAdmin. These fields are at the forum level so that, for example, you can protect some forums while leaving a "Help" forum open.


I have these wishes:
- a web interface for setting a minimum amount of credit to post on a forum

- a web interface for cancelling workunits with checkboxes:
[ ] WU 123456
[X] WU 123457
[ ] WU 123499
[ ] WU 123506
[X] WU 123555

- a web interface for changing application names (user_friendly_name?) easily. I changed them in the project.xml and run bin/xadd and bin/update_versions but the old name is still there in the server status page.

Thanks!

Henri.

forum.post_min_total_credit is only used by database changes. Thats user unfriendly. Its better to have an automatic system where new user accounts get the credits total needed from the setup defined or in the webinterface somewhere updating all users with a new value.
