I have several users who repeatedly upload multiple images at a time, one after the other. On the one hand this is good, content. On the other hand, when someone comes to the site, all they see is 30 activity feed entries from one person and they have *swamped* the site. I need to be able to moderate this, particularly on a per-user basis, so the Moderation plugin leaps out at me as the right place to do this.
If I have a reported user, for example, is there a way to make their activity automatically either:
1. bunch the uploads (activity entries) to a certain amount (say groups of 5)?
2. filter the activity entries in some way (say block over 5)?
Do you see the problem, and do you see a solution? I’m happy to work with you on an extension and/or filter if necessary/possible.
since posting this I found your existing BP plugin for throttling the activity feed: https://buddydev.com/plugins/bp-rate-limit-user-activity/ 🙂
This *almost* does what I want. How hard would it be to make it apply to specific users, and/or for media uploads specifically? For example with a “throttle” switch from their frontend profile (or from the user/edit backend) do you think?
Thank you for the suggestions. Indeed this falls into restrictions/quota limiting than moderation.
I will look at the activity rate limit plugin and assist tomorrow. Also, we do have a sophisticated Restrictions plugin in progress and will be available some time in January(fine grained control based on roles)
Sorry about this. It will be available around the end of the month. For now, you can use the filters available with the rate limit activity. There are filters available in it and you can filter the limit based on users.
If you need assistance with it, Please do let me know.
