It is currently possible to prohibit other site members from posting photos to the site. Go to the Settings tab (last tab) in the family site and select the “Privacy” link in the line below it. Now click the “Members” tab below. This will allow you to specify which type of content you want to allow your site members to post. Uncheck the box saying “Photo albums”.
It is currently not possible to prohibit members from inviting other members to the site, but we may decide to allow blocking that too.
I'd like to continue this discussion and extend the idea of custom Site members' permissions for sharing information. It would be very useful to have implemented the following security options that can be configured for the particular site user(s):
- Read-only access (Permission for modifying any objects): Site member can view full site information but cannot modify (edit/delete) anything. Commenting only is possible.
- Permission for modifying own objects: Site member can add objects (tree items, persons, photos, etc.), edit/delete objects added by himself, but cannot modify objects added by other members.
- Permission for deleting objects: Site member can add/edit but cannot delete any obects.
- Permission for modifying biographical facts about persons: Site member can edit information about any persons, but cannot add/delete objects.
