uhm, this wasnt my question ... this was just a comment, however i started a thread about it but that one got closed ... with some rather lame comments from a mod.
Anyway... Under admin-rights you can search for users, and then when clicking the user you can administrate the user. Here you can assign what forums this moderator should moderate. So far, so good. Problem is, lets say I've got two seperate hidden forums, both of these should have their own moderator, this moderator should not have access to the other hidden forum. The little testing I've done shows this is hard to do with punbb, if I make both a moderator they will automatically be able to read the others forums, and they can moderate their own. I dont want this, and my users dont want this. I also tested this by removing access to moderators to group A, but at the same time in userconfig saying user X should moderate group Y, this didnt work ofc since this user couldnt access the forum he was supposed to moderate (it didnt show up for that user).
If I understood this correctly, that part would be "fixed" in 1.3, and that combined with the possibility to assign users to more groups is really all thats needed for me, since then my members can access several hidden forums.
If I with the current system have to make several moderator groups, and special groups for every user belonging to several forums it will be unmanageable (At least with several groups and several hidden forums). My forums are for teams that have their own forums, ofc they dont want players and captains from other teams looking into their forums. A toggle box-for checking or unchecking all the checkboxes for a group wouldnt be to bad either, perhaps even one for removing all the checks....
Sat around for a while yesterday looking at an install of these forums and I really got my hopes up, and then I started playing around with the user-system and well that doesnt work for me, but I got to say, looks like an awesome forum-package you have created.
