Brf, I already thought so first. But check out the corresponding vbulletin-feature and you'll see, that these kind "private groups" or "interest communities" have many advantages on a normal user level. I think that starting with and expanding the existing group-management would be the easiest way to make such a MOD.
Extending the a_-rights with u_-rights for "private groups" is a first step. These are special groups for special interests, this has nothing to do with overall-groups defined by admins in the current way.
These additional features would be nice in such a MOD:
- Users can create "personal groups" (different to "overall groups" defined in the acp), they are the "Creator"
- "Creators" automatically are "Owners" and "Leaders" of the group the created
- "Owners" can transfer their private groups to another user, who will be the new "Owner" of the group
- "Owners" can define a "Leader" for managing the group
- Listing of all personal groups, extended UCP, extended meberlist_view, etc.
