I currently have “Room Creation Permissions” set to “Anyone can create a chat room.” This is how I want it. However I do want to limit settings on these rooms that users can create. These limitations should include:
-Rooms cannot be made persistent. (Unless rooms are deleted periodically after an amount of inactivity, however this would be another concern as I have some rooms which should never be removed.)
-List room in directory should be optional and disabled by default.
-Make room moderated should be optional and disabled by default.
-Make room members-only should be optional and disabled by default.
-I think occupants should be able to invite others. (How does this work? If this setting is not available how do others get into the room if it’s not listed?)
-Allow occupants to change subject should be optional and disabled by default.
-Only login with registered nicknames should not be enabled. AKA any nick should be permitted based on this setting.
-Allow occupants to change nicknames should be optional and enabled by default.
-Allow users to register with the room should not be available.
-Rooms should never be logged.
So is there any way to enforce these kind of rules with allowing anyone to create a chat room? What is the deal I have read about in regards to chatrooms being hidden and/or removed after not being used for 30 days and is there a way to prevent this for certain rooms? How can I change the default settings for chatrooms created through a client? (We are using the latest version of Pidgin.) Thanks for the advice.
