"Joinable" User Groups

    I have some 8 user groups in my vB installation that are "joinable" - the user asks to join them, and a group moderador approves (or not). I believe that XF doesn't have right now the same functionality, right?

    Anybody had the same problem and, if so, what were the solution adopted?

    I know the Waindigo Add-on ("Joinable User Groups") bur is there another way? I was thinking about Social Grups add-ons, but none give me the option to convert an actual forum to a social forum.

    Any ideas/sugestions?

    You'll need custom development to gain all the functionality of the vBulletin Social groups / Joinable groups. It doesn't exist in XenForo.

    Ok, but I would like to know what other users did - simply throw away the funcionalty, tried other ways (maybe a request to an admin by conversation?) ou paid a developer :)

    Yes, I intedn to use it - but the threads I already have in the forums will not be transferred. These are actual threads in actual forums. To use Social Groups I would have to archive them in some place, there's no way to move threads between forums and social groups :confused:

    You could do this with a custom user field and user group promotion.

    It would be automatic though without the ability to moderate it.

    Nice one! Thanks for the insight!

    Just that? Change the node_id in xf_thread table?
