Subscriber permissions fail to set…they can still ask questions!

I know it sounds odd, but I need subscribers to be able to

1. Register

2. Read questions

3. View answers

4. Vote

but NOT ask questions…

It seems possible but perhaps not. Any ideas?

    Okay, silly question time.

    I have not yet worked on the plugin. It's a nice tool and probably does what you think in terms of my issue. It is quite complicated, but I will dig into it.

    However, the question: My problem is not keeping people way from /questions/ask but the little blue and gray boxes on top of every single question and answer. Each page has a "Ask a Question" option.

    Unless I block the subs from reading all the questions (which would be ridiculous and beside the point), who can I remove that particular feature from each page?

    I need contributors to see the questions and answer them. (Not to ask them).

    I need subs to see and vote (not ask nor answer).

    The cleanest solution is the eliminate all the boxes (Questions, Unanswered, Ask a Question, and Search), possibly by commenting that out, maybe?

    I can give contributors separate links to /questions and /unanswered. Search is not important.

    Ideas? Hmmm? Remember, you're a w e s o m e to me. No pressure.

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
