  • Restrict the usergroups (or users) a member can PM?

    I was just wondering if there's a way to specify what members or usergroups a particular user can send PMs to? More specifically, is there a way to set the permissions for an individual user such that they can send and receive PMs to/from admin, but not other mods or members? We've got a problem user I'm trying to give some time to cool off, and while this is going on I'd like to restrict their PM privileges so they can't barf all over everyone's PM box - but if possible I'd like to continue being able to PM them myself to (hopefully) resolve the situation without resorting to banning or the like. Thanks very much for any response you can provide! =)

    Sorry, there is no function to do this. This requires modifying the code. We cannot officially support code modifications or forums running modified code, however you can try searching or asking for help with this over at
