... that`s kinda what I´d thought was your idea in the first place. I mean people are always, and still, able to post threads on their own. And for those threads specifically posted here all who can see/edit them are in the group or from the staff anyway.
Right, so in this forum I enabled the ability to do Collaborative posts, but in normal forums you won't have that. So when you are creating content you may want to build the content in one of these special areas, like Gentlemanrob has. Then you are ready to go public, I have an additional suite of tools to adjust post dates if needed, and move threads to different forums.
If you want to do maintenance on an old thread, we would have to go out to the forum and bring it here so you could edit it, unless it was your own thread.
