I don't know if this is done in python,perl or what the
blazes. Let me explain.
I am a student at a college. It has a forum whose
adminstator has agreed to my request, as a student, to give PM
privileges to all students. Now, since all students get automatic status
on the forum, virtue of their student number, the admin has told me this:
I have been following up on the Private Messaging permissions for all
students as I think it is a valuable function for students to use. It looks
as though we will have to manually give individual students permission to
send PMs to each other. With thousands of students registered as users on
the forums, this is not a small task. We will start with the top 200 or so
users who frequently use the forums and go on from there.
Now, instead of this slogwork is there any script that could do
it quickly? A python script? php?perl? I don't know what the technology
behind the forum is. I could ask if that will help people here advise
me. But for now I am trying to keep my question uncluttered and simple.
It does seem to me to be a task that a lot of forums would be faced with.
Any help will be appreciated. If someone were to write a
script I cannot pay you anything; but I could give you acknowledgements
on the forum.
