XF 1.3 Limiting posting based on location

Hi there,

I'm looking to setup a forum that only allows posting to it from members in a certain area (city if possible, state/province would be OK), is this possible?

Otherwise I will have to manually verify members, but I am not sure how I'd do that accurately. Thanks in advance for any insights!

I don't see any way to do this other than manual verification. You could potentially use GeoIP but I don't know if that's useful enough.

There may be some other approaches, but they would likely need to be custom developed for your needs.
Ok, thanks. I will likely just create moderated forums where the group to post is manually verified. I may look into a custom solution depending on cost.
