  • I'm glad you think the UI looks promising, we are very excited to see this go live and would love continued feedback once we do!

    Although most users will not run into private forums, this is actually a functionality in which we have today. These users have certain permissions in order to view these forums. Since we are now mixing threads from different forums, when a specific scope has not been set, the use of icons will allow for a quick identification if a thread belongs to one of these private forums. This is also true for abusive threads to promote a quicker response from moderators and owners in order to reduce spam.

    Thanks for the response Bryant.

    I never heard about any existing private forum till today, now I do :)

     what kind of users visit there ? VIP users or special users ? Could you please  give an example ?

    Edit : I know that, Moderators forums are private as well as PArtner forums. Are you referring the same forums ?
