XF 2.2 Mirror Thread to another forum


On our forum, we have a staff applications section where users can post threads using a template. We want to be able to discuss these applications in the section, without them being able to see anything except the "final decision", whether it be approval or denial. We can't set "view thread content" to no, as then they won't be able to see it.

One way we think we could do it is that when they post a thread in that section, it also gets posted in another hidden forum that only our application team can see, and discuss.

Is there another way to go about this?
