I have a community with a variety of different games/servers. Each of these games/servers are considered "sub-communities", they don't necessarily have anything to do with eachother.
I was looking through this software and got a few questions in regards to that.
1. I want each server to have the appearance as if they are a single instance forum. Meaning they'd resolve their own URL, e.g. http://csgo.mycommunity.com would go to their assigned forum (sub-forum of the main XF forum) and then hopefully topics/links underneath would resolve to http://csgo.mycommunity.com/index.php?f=1&t=12 or whatever the url standards are here. Is this possible?
2. (Question 1 follow-up): Is this in violation of license, seeing we want all users to be able to access all servers' forums, but we want each forum to appear as if it's an own instance (avoid a lot of clutter from other servers that the clients/players doesn't really care about.)
3. Each server has it's own Manager/Management, I'd like to give them as much power as possible for their forum&sub-forums, including user management (adding moderators to various sections of their forums) but at the same time I don't want server A/forum A's managers/management to have permissions to touch server B/forum B's permissions, moderation or reading or anything.
Essentially if you're familar with the steam groups, I want each "sub-community" to be a part of the greater community, have their user access, but at the same time I want each server manager to have autonomy of their servers & affiliated forums.
Previously we've operated with a single phpBB forum for each, steam group forums for others and so forth. I'd like to gather everything to have a greater community and more userfriendly as many players who plays on one community server tends to play on another. This would also make it easier to maintain and run for the community management.
Sorry if this should be obvious already and thanks for input.
