Allow one user to post attachments unmoderated

We moderate all posts with attachments. I have one very trusted member that I'd like to set so his posts with attachments go up without review.

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks

Yes. Edit his membership record for the group and in the Posting Privileges section, select 'Override: not moderated'

Er... I don't think so. See the Owners Manual pdf version para 3.7.5 where it reads The system flags messages that include attachments for moderation (regardless of other moderation settings set for the group).

Andy,

>>> Yes. Edit his membership record for the group and in the Posting Privileges section, select 'Override: not moderated'

Unfortunately this doesn't work, I was in the process of testing it so I could reply to this thread, and turns out the Moderate-Attachments setting takes precedence.

Not sure if it is by design or a bug though, I'll ask on beta.

Cheers,
Christos

Thanks to all who replied. In my experience, the attachment setting overrides the sender's posting status. I was just hoping.... 


 

You can always join the beta group and add your opinion on this in this topic.  If enough folks support that, it may be changed to do what you would like.
