I think this has been suggested somewhere, but the primary usage/advantage of it is if the permission set is centralized, so changing it once changes it for all the forums. I do see the benefit in that.
Can I please add support for this idea?
A moderator will usually be set with the same privileges for all the forums he will moderate.
So I would like to be able to pick the list of forums to assign to a new moderator.
Otherwise it becomes a long winded process.
