Moderation system

Hi, this will be built in starting version 0.6.7 it will be out on Aug 14 or earlier.

With the following levels:

  • superuser (full access, excluding some checks like "cannot vote twice" and such)
  • moderator (exempt from reputation limits, can change status of users excluding moderators and superuser, can't create new moderators)
  • approved user (regular user)
  • suspended (generally can edit only own posts)
  • blocked (cannot edit)

It is quite a detailed work to make sure that all the proper messages are displayed if something is impossible due to rules, show actual reputation settings - like how many points is required to do this and that - in the UI responses, and to write a meaningful set of test cases.

Login system

No, login system is not customizable yet and is still tightly coupled with the application.

The new login system will be "uncoupled" - as a separate django application that will be more flexible. The idea is to allow to use the same login system for multiple applications on the site or even swap to another auth system.
