This is a great idea - is it possibly to be integrated with the usergroups and permissions for a 'user created forum' to be automatically selected to private (hidden) - the user then has to get people to join their usergroup to be able to view his/her forum.
I envision literally hundreds of public forums if this got onto the wrong site but if it created the new forum as part of a new usergroup then only the creator of the new forum and his 'guests' will be able to see the new forum.
And look in the database to see if the user has already got a usergroup - if so then he/she cannot create a second usergroup/user forum.
Hope you get my drift - excellent work though.
This is a great mod, and this is a great idea... I would also like to see a feature that doesnt allow this unless the user has at least 50 or so post (admin defined).Then they kinda know what there doing and can get around a bit... New guys always come in and dont even know how to post let alone create a forum of there own.. This would keep your top people at the top and reward them a little bit to post..
If i sign on your board for a day, make a forum, then cut out, you wont know weather to drop the forum or not..
Maybe an enable FORUM CREATED FORUMS pruning lol
Lots of ideas for this one...good job..
