    if you want a specific user/usergroup not to use Personal Conversation
    you can set in in permission settings "Start personal conversations" = NEVER

    However if they have already existing conversations, they can still reply
    and use the existing conversations they have.

    I suggest to have additional permission:
    Reply personal conversations :

    This would be a welcome feature. It's sometimes useful to have a usergroup that can do nothing but view the site.

    I'd like a simple way to restrict a member from posting or editing messages. This would include Thread Messages and Private Conversations.

    IMHO, "reply" and "create new" PCs fall under "send a personal conversation message". It would also help to include the ability to receive personal conversations if possible. In essence, disabling the personal conversation system completely or at most, making it "read only".

    There are times when one member harasses another. If there is an open personal conversation, that same member can keep on harassing the other member. And we may not want the harassed member to delete or leave that conversation (to keep it as evidence).

    Just copying my post to this thread - which I posted in bugs as I see it as a bug/serious flaw:


    The problem is more than just letting users carry on existing conversations, it's them being able to bypass the permissions :(

    Is there any update on this?

    It's becoming a joke on my forum where users banned for a set period dont care because they can just carry on group conversations with their members in what effectively becomes a private forum for banned users.

    This is something that I believe would greatly be appreciated by forum admins if it was added in. Theres no point in any of the other permissions if they already have a ton of Conversations with other problem users.
