XF 1.2 Loads of usergroups ? Could that affect load time ?

    If I have like 100 usergroups on my board, each one with like 50 members, could that make my site slower ?

    Are usergroups designed to be really flexible like that ?

    Why you would ever need to have 100 user groups?

    No, amount of user groups shouldn't have any effect on your load time, other then maybe a page that listed all the groups and members within it, but even that shouldn't be really noticeable.

    It may cause issues during permission rebuilds, when creating private nodes for example.

    A kind of custom add-on ^^

    And even with these usergroups with "defaults" permission. 0 special permission for these. Can this still causes issues ?

    BTW, I don't think I will have more than 50 usergroups (and less that 10 users in each group), so no problem with that ?

    You may have issues rebuilding permissions, but unless you are updating permissions constantly, you should be relatively fine.

    A permissions combination for each group must be created.

    @digitalpoint, since you have a big board, what is your opinion about that ?

    Would you suggest me having 100 usergroups, or is that a bad idea ?

    If I want so many usergroups, it is just for the username styling, not for the permissions.

    Truthfully, I'm not sure... I don't have that many usergroups... I *think* it should be okay normally with the way it's done... but like @Brogan said, might be some slowness when rebuilding permissions.
