XF 2.2 Private Posting?

Hello,

I am in the process of setting up a new forum. I want a specific node section to be accessible to all members, but once they create a thread, I want it to remain private and only viewable by them, forum staff, and select other users. Is this possible with an addon or anything specific?
 
Solution
That would be possible. If I'm not mistaken, quickly out of the head, staff can see everything.
As for the specific forum, use the node permissions to set the "View threads by others" to either no or never (test it out).
This way that usergroup (probably you will use the registered group) will only be allowed to view their own threads created.

I'm not 100% sure if this will also prevent them from seeing thread titles of other users, maybe @Brogan can clarify that.

It kind of makes no sense. They can see everything until they post, then they only see theirs (and think it is private, but others can see it until they post their own)?

I don't believe other threads would be visible, just the node.

XF does allow for part of what is being requested, but not the 'select other users' bit.

Depends on what is ment by these "select other users" bit. If they are different every time, then it can't be done by thread.
If those users can be put into a certain seperate group (example, some helpers with knowledge on a PC forum which you could put in a group called "helpers" or something like that), then it might be possible, with node permissions combined with usergroup permissions.

Edit: But that group would be able to see all threads not only selected threads, that is not possibel as far as I know.
