I have 2 suggestions.
The first, is a system for the memberg group of the owners of the forum, that will give the option to read PMs.
I think that it's really importnat, maybe someone can advertise on PM, Insult on PM without someone knows how to report on it, etc....
The 2nd is giving more permissions....
I thought about that, that we can make POSTS (not like boards) and we can choose the member groups and the people who will be able to see the posts, and even deciding who can reply, and who can't....

The first would be a violation of user privacy.

As for your second suggestion, that would be impossible to do. The easiest thing would be to create a board with the permissions set that only select people can post in. But other membergroups can only read by setting the board to "read only".

No one get me here?
If they want private, so they can use facebook, skype, email etc.
How can I know if someone is advertsing if I can't read others PMs?
It should be permission on the "Permissions" ....

All private messages have a Report to moderator link just as the posts do. If a user feels that the content of the message they've received is spam or otherwise off color, they are free to use that link which will then display that message to staff. But for the administrator to be able to read all private messages, would be a breach of user confidentiality and security.

Again, not "Administrators", only me, the owner of the forum.
I am sure that there are people that dont know about it, or maybe they don't want to report.
We can trust everybody.
Maybe someone say that if they come to their forum, they will be on the staff or something like that, so the other one may not report...

It simply just can't happen. And to say that users can use Facebook, Twitter or Skype for more privacy would be like saying "If you want privacy you can leave my forum", which would ultimately kill it.

Are you concerned about spam or other people talking about you?

In all the years I've had my forum I've never had a problem with either.

Maybe you're doing something wrong.  ;)
