You may want it to be a playground for MxO gamers only, or maybe you want to keep it open only to people who wear Matrix shades indoors or Trinity look-a-likes only. Make it a discussion board for a particular religion or belief, anything you decide. It's your forum.
This is open to anyone, and all you have to do is reply to this post or PM me with the following details:
- Forum name
- Forum description
- Forum permissions: whether the forum should be 'Public', 'Registered', 'Registered [Hidden]'. 'Private', 'Private [Hidden]' (see definitions below)
All the details are at the discretion of the Site Administrator (me) and in particular, forum permissions will be based on your activity within the forum. If your activity is low on the board or your forum is not very active or well-maintained, your forum will be given 'Private [Hidden]' status so it will only be visible to those who become members of your Usergroup (which will be created if one doesn't already exist).
The position of your forum in the Forum Index will be dependent on its activity, popularity and relevance, at the sole discretion of the Site Administrator. So expect this to change from time to time...
So, now some definitions:
- 'Public': Can be seen and posted to by all
'Registered': Can be seen by all but only posted to by registered users
'Registered [Hidden]': Can only be seen and posted to by registered users
'Private': Can be seen by all but only posted to by members of your Usergroup
'Private [Hidden]': Can only be seen and posted to by members of your Usergroup
