Title: Certain Group Message Icons
Post by: emmabemma on December 14, 2008, 11:47:41 AM
Hello there.

I would like to request a feature that I think would be a nice little add. Some people may find it pointless, but I think it would be quite cool.

I would like to see Message Icons avaliable for only some groups. So, if you add a custom message icon, you have the option of "Group Permissions" and you can set which groups you would like to be able to use the custom message icon.

I like the idea of this feature because, if you were to set up a message icon avaliable for Administrators & Moderators only, then it might show a bit of authority around the forums, it will symbolize a staff members post/thread and that it must be read, or they can just use it as a change from the normal icons. They could also use it if it is an urgent thread that must be read, so when users are browsing the board, they will see the icon and check out the thread. Also it doesn't have to just be for staff, maybe Elite groups might have their own icon that they could use.

I hope you would be able to implement this feature into future versions of SMF.
