I tried searching throught the forums with this topic, but haven't had any luck. Is there a way to set a certain section of the forum for members with a minimum amount of posts (like 1000 posts) or a rank?
Well yea there are lots of way to do that. One really simple method is create a new Group and add all the members you want to have access to some particular forum. Then go in Group Permissions for that Group and choose "Allowed".
