I have a slightly different use:
My BB is a private one for a referee association. When there are "incidents" during a game we have to file a report for the board of directors, which sometimes includes sensitive issues. We currently use emails, but this implementation would create a database of reports plus board member responses. When a new board is elected, they will have access to the db without a requisite transfer of emails, etc.

Hoping to see that MOD soon guys!

Just giving everyone the heads up, I am going to bring out the new version this weekend (it's Friday here) and I still don't know how I'm going to handle the fact that many of you got his mod already installed as I'm changing the way that database edits are being done (I'm using UMIL).
Please note that I will not be porting any of my mods to phpBB 3.1. Sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

Hi there,

Sorry for the late reply, yes I'm still working on it. Just so that you know my hands are a little full but be assured that I have not forgotten about this :)

Why not to use the built-in features instead?

Just create one or more forum/s or forum/sub-forum or better a forum/sub-forum/sub-forum for each User. Where he/she is the only that have the appropriated read and write permissions. Allowing Moderators/Users to have those too it is up to the Admin, in this case.

This way the User gets a complete forum where to expand a topic for every question or so on, I did it in the past for my private needs.

Am I missing something?

Because then you could have 1,000's of forums and phpBB doesn't work well with a huge amount of forums.

That is way too tedious. Creating a sub-forum/forum for every single user? No way

Yes, it would be extremely admin-intensive to do that. Not only would you have to create a forum for every user manually, you'd also have to create a group for each user or change each user's permissions directly (which is generally discouraged).

You have to do it that way if you want to host different clubs or clans, but having new forum permissions is easier for this case.

Even if phpBB provided an event-driven system (when a user registers, create a forum for him automatically), you could easily run into the problem that RMcGirr83 mentioned.

I am aware that 1500/2500 is the known limit, I strongly believe that in most cases are enough, though.
But, yes.. having read also others I do have to agree with you all.

I know "purpose" of this has been covered pretty well, but just to throw in another good example for it would be in my case.
I am an officer in a online gaming guild. when people want to join our guild, I have an have an application form with a bunch of questions that newly registered users fill out, and upon submission it posts a new topic in an "applications" forum with the questions and users answers. it works great, but the issue is we don't want everyone in our guild to be able to view the applications, we only want the guild officers able to see them. so by using standard forum permissions, the new user cannot see his posted application, and the only way to communicate with the new user is by PM or Email, and it makes it very difficult when you have multiple users submitting applications because it just creates a huge PM hot mess. being able to just reply to the topics would be amazing. I don't imagine it being that hard to implement, I am surprised it hasn't been a built in feature. there is a couple mods out there that do this, but they are really old (3.0.5), I guess it is not a real high priority for the masses, but it is for the ones that need it.

Hi Danielx64,

New to phpbb, waiting desperately for your MOD so that I can launch my 1st phpbb forum.

Hope the development is going strong. Any hint of a beta test soon?

Thanks a million

Ok I've made a post on my forum with a download link to the version that I picked up from the original author.

link: http://danielx64.com/forums/viewtopic.p ... p=205#p205

The biggest problem is trying to make a installer that not going to break when people go and install the new version. After the fact that I left it for awhile I now have a much clear mind and I can see that I could almost send it into the mod database after creating the installer.
