Geek Article and Review System License Holder 
Default A question before I purchase.

I'm new to GARS and from the looks of it, What a product! With that said, I have visited numerous sites using GARS and it seems that just any registered user can submit an article on their own behalf at any time.

So, is there a way for mods or admins to review the article before it's submitted for all to see? Thanks.

THanks Wolf. GARS uses vB's permission and moderation system. Therefore you can control by usergroup who can publish items per category and also if you want to moderate entries

Does this mean, you can set permissions to where a user needs X amount of posts to be able to submit articles?

If you have a mod that prevents posts in your forums if the user hasnt made x amount of posts, then the same will be applicible in GARS. Essentially whatever posting restrictions you can make in vB, you can make in GARS.

Hope that helps!

GARS is just using the native vB usergroup permissions. So, if the site you mentioned allows anyone to submit a new thread in the forum that is using GARS, then that would allow anyone to submit a GARS article. On my site, I'm using GARS for my home page news ( http://pdaphonehome.com). You can try it yourself, but only mods/admins can submit new news. I just set this up the same as I'd setup a forum that only mods could start new threads in. If you want registered users to be able to discuss your news, its important to make sure you set the permissions that way for the registered group for that forum.
