For example, a newly registered user cannot start a new conversation, or post in a forum, until they have been registered for X days.
I'm sure I can use the User Group Promotions feature for this, but how should I do it?
I know that all users are in the "Registered" Primary User Group upon registering, so I thought of adding, using the UGP feature, a secondary group named "Restricted Permissions". This won't work though because there would a time period when registering, before their restricted user group is applied.
Maybe the Primary User Group should have those restricted permissions, and the secondary group should be applied (when criteria are met) to elevate a user's permissions instead?
Is the latter approach better?
