A word of warning about upgrading from the XenForo 1.x version of this add-on (Thread level permissions).
BEFORE upgrading to XenForo 2, place your existing private threads into moderation by disabling the XenForo 1.x version of the add-on. If you don't do this, all of your XenForo 1.x version private threads will be visible to all members in XenForo 2 until you upgrade to this version of the add-on. When you upgrade to this version, any existing private threads will remain private and be taken out of moderation during the upgrade process.
Well, I understand that. But why not offer the flexibilty to forum owners to decide whether their Mods should see private threads, or not? In our forum, we'd love it. Others might not. The choice would be nice.
I would like to propose an idea: to make a bridge between the add-on "Prefix Actions" and "Private Threads", so that when applying a certain prefix the thread becomes private. For example a prefix called "+prv".
Fifth option: -Make the thread private.
One more idea: make the threads marked as private with the prefix +prv are accessible only to users with more than x days old and more than 100 messages posted.
Thank you, they are just ideas, don't listen to me too much.
The two add-ons aren't intertwined. So, to have the option to make them private wouldn't work for everyone. Beside that, you have to invite people to a private thread, so just making it private wouldn't accomplish that portion of this add-on.
The private thread add-on isn't used for groups of people as you're suggesting. It is used with specific users. There are no plans to change that.
Ah, well, it would be a different complement that would make a private thread when applying a prefix, for a certain group of users.
I'm waiting for some developer to design a complement like that. Maybe it exists and I have not seen it, it has happened to me with the complement "Social Groups", because I had been waiting for something like that, and it already existed without me knowing it.
