Not planned View your thread option


Well-known member
Would be cool to have a "View your thread" option when creating/editing threads.

Like the "View your profile" option that you have in privacy settings.

It would be so you could create a thread and either allow "All Visitors" or "People you follow only".
Absolutely not!

Thread and post visibility is controlled by the setup in the ACP ie determined by administrators. It isn't, nor should it ever be, controlled by the users thrmselves.

If users want to limit the visibility of some of their content, that's what profile posts, albums and conversations are for.

Aside from going against the concept of a forum (IMO), this would also be absolutely brutal for performance. I can't see this happening.

Fair enough. I thought it would be a nice addition. Thought it would be easier to restrict it to "people you follow" instead of starting a 100 people conversation that can't be moderated.

profile posts, albums and conversations
Profile posts are good for little "how-you-doings?". Albums if you have XFMG installed. Conversations are completely private and can't be moderated.

I see it's been closed already, so doesn't matter. I just wanted to explain my reasoning a bit more :)
