Allow admin setting for default privacy

#1
I would like to see a setting in admincp to make user newly created albums public or private, not just private as it is currently. Therefor if it is set to public by default then the user would have the option to keep the newly created album public, or make albums private.

That option is there already. Options -> Xenforo Media Gallery -> Default Album View Permission. It provides 5 different options you can set as default, with the new install default being Private.

In MG1, there wasn't actually direct control over privacy when creating an album, whereas now there is. I believe it would likely be a template edit to change the default value as it stands (though I haven't researched it).

Regardless, this is a valid suggestion.

I like this suggestion, because I think the default should be public (as with Youtube). It is in the interests of the forum for for content to be out there, not for people's own free storage facility. However I can see a lot of value in allowing private albums for privileged members as part of an incentive to buy an upgrade.

I can also see value in an extra category (like Youtube) of unlisted, ie not available to browse or search but viewble via URL only. But that's a different suggestion of course.

I don't understand. In MG1 there is an option, just as I mentioned above, that provides direct control over default privacy for new albums. Now there isn't. It's basically the complete opposite of what you're saying.
