First and formost I hope i'm in the right spot for this question.

I am playing a game called 9Dragons. I have my forum, here is the link,

http://forbiddenkingdomhl.niceboard.org

I have it to were there is a PUBLIC forum. But some of the individuals that have stopped playing due to reasons of many i'm sure, and 1 being that Acclaim shut down , lost Database, and Gamersfirst has control over 9Dragons now.

Enough of that, bottomline, I want them to be able to be members on my forum still but no thave acess to the full forum. I am not sure how this can be done. I tried the Admin Panel> General> Catagories and Forums and picking the direct forum and setting up permisions that way. But when I take away the check mark from "members" then I can add to who I want to reply to that forum or not. But then "members" isn't checked marked. So now my delima is, ok they are members but not in league, so i can't uncheck the "members" option, but if i don't do that then I can't put the group i put these individuals in as unchecked for replying to this forum... arg!!

sorry just a little frustrated.. anyway hope this made sense.. been working on this for awhile and it could be a "no" can't be done or it is right infront of my nose.

Thanks in advanced, ask me to clarify if you are confused.

Hello,

Don't worry, I was once like that, once you learn what to do, you'll be sweet as Smile

2 things to do:
1 - Create a new group; call it "members who can see room X" or whatever you like.
Add the member/s.
2 - Go back to change the permissions, DISALLOW everyone but that group to view it > Save.
Only hat group + Admins should be able to see it

That is what I did, I created a group called "Visitors"
Went to all the forums and put everyone to be able to reply to them but the "members" part was unchecked. Then realized I made to were "members", including the "visitors" now that are members also not able to reply to the forum...

So this is were the issue for me comes into play on how to do it and how frustrated it has been to go back and add the members that i want to be able to reply to the forum/catagory.

Oh boy, I feel like i'm not explaining myself correctly, sorry for that.. i'll leave it like this just incase someone knows what i'm trying to say.. Embarassed

I sort of do but don't understand that, can you clarify a bit more please?

If the "visitor" group has a lower post requirement that the "member" group, then all members will be in that, even if they leave the group, because it is based on post count, the next time they post they will return to that group
