XF 1.3 Make forum submission only?

I'm not sure if this is an add-on, but I saw on a website that one of the forums was submission only. Basically you could see the sticky threads and threads you have posted, but not others. I figured this would be cool for my forum mod application forum. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Okay, I did that, but now instead of saying (Submission Only) it says (Private) and doesn't show the sticky threads. I want it to show the sticky threads, in this case the format they need to use, and the posts they have made. So my members can only see posts that are sticky or ones they posted in the forum.

There is no combination of permissions which will allow members to see sticky threads and their own threads only.
An example of this is here. http://hypixel.net
The "Staff Application", "Ban Appeal", and "Report Abuse/Hackers" forums all have this Submission Only. You can see threads you have posted and sticky threads.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Is this a custom add-on or is it already made?
