Opening new topics by integration with another application
We're looking to use Vanilla as a daughter forum for a site that is like a local StackOverflow but for general purpose science and fact based questions.
The Vanilla forum would function as a receiver site of deleted questions on the StackOverflow-like site, so moderators on the main site would essentially move questions from that site to Vanilla if they are deemed unsuitable for that site.
Is this a feasible use case for Vanilla? Are there starting points for such an integration by which Vanilla accepts new topics from another application, including the user info, so that original poster becomes the opener of the new topic?
