I think that is the New Feature request I saw prior to making the post… but I think it is referring to the default form[/b] settings. Right now when you create a new room in the web admin, the default form settings are always the same. So I think JM-79 is about remembering what settings to have already filled in, so that people making a lot of rooms don’'t have to keep changing things for each one they make.
For the restricted options available when a public user makes a room, I think the more flexibility for the admins the better. It won’'t be useful in all situations… but Jive Messenger is more than just a replacement for IRC. It is being used in a lot of small, and focussed situations.
For instance, some communities might not believe in moderation. In such environments, you could go to any chat room and know that it will be free from operator rule. Or maybe some users aren’‘t using your server because some rooms are logged, and some aren’‘t, and they don’'t want their stuff logged but they are never sure which rooms are which so they just go back to EFnet.
My example in the original post was specific, but is by no means the only use for such a feature. If an admin doesn’'t want certain types of rooms to be created on that particular server, and he has no means of controlling this, then he will end up disabling ‘‘all users can create rooms’’ and just make them himself. So rather than thinking of this as adding further restrictions, I was thinking it would actually increase freedom since then that admin could enable room creation minus the features that would get in the way with whatever his particular mission is for that server.
