Plugin releases should have larger new user threshold for links


I just registered and this is my second thread - When posting a plugin release thread I ran into the issue that new users are only allowed 2 links in their posts.

I think this should be increased to 3 or 5 (In the plugin releases category) to allow at least following links:

  • Download link
  • Set up tutorial link
  • Live chat support link / Issue tracker link

The current limitation might drive users to post nonsense elsewhere to not be considered a new user anymore.

Discourse only allows me to configure the maximum number of links a new user can put on a post, total. Not ideal.

I have raised the limit to 3 globally but won’t be willing to go further than that.
