Minor Addition to Permissions

Post by RazielBach on August 2nd 2014, 2:49 pm

Hey there, what I'm suggesting is something nice and simple and it could be very beneficial to a forum depending on what it is for.

My suggestion is this: The ability to make it so a specific sub-forum can be posted on by anyone, but that topic can only be view by that specific sub-forums moderators and the original poster.

For example, say you created a game. You'd obviously want to know about bugs. However, you wouldn't want everyone to know about these bugs. So you'd want a specific sub-forum that allows other people to inform you of these bugs, without informing others.

So, Person 1 creates a topic, the sub-forum moderator goes in and reads the topic, Person 2 enters the sub-forum, but it shows no topics at all.

It would be a minor addition, and depending on what the forum is for, it would make a lot of peoples lives easier with managing certain aspects of the forum/their project.

Thank you for reading.
