I have a List Definition and I want to limit only 1 specific user to "add new items" to this list, oh by the way its a custom list definition, I was wondering what are the possible ways to accomplish this task. Oh by the way i am using Sharepoint 2007 :).


More Like, I just want 1 user(who created the list) to be able to add new Items or Edit/Delete them
