    I saw on some other forums based on xenforo that they have private threads. I have no intention of undermining community spirit and i know the forum owner is away and wont be easy.
    I also personally would have little to no use of such feature but i just imagined it could be useful for some people.
    For example there can be beta threads for units,where a vape maker communicates with his beta team and doesnt feel ok sharing the process with the public at the current point.
    I know that this can be pretty much covered by PMs/Multi user conversations or other communication platforms,but it can be useful also in other ways.
    If one wants to start/keep a development thread/journal for his product ,which he might or might not share or make public at some point. It might also serve as a proof of concept if need or something like that. I admit i am not really sober now but it would be cool if FC could facilitate such delevopment journals, who would be either private or personal.
    Cheers :D..

    As I never tried to do it personally, I don't believe someone can send a pm to more than 1 person at a time so, if I'm correct, right now you have the hinderance & tediousness of a burdensome communications platform.

    There is an option to add other people to a conversation, so it looks like PM’s can include multiple parties?

    Yes, but only for the mods. I'm not sure why that feature is visible for everyone. @vtac was probably high when setting it up. :lol:

    :peace:
