In fact - maybe sold it for the highest price ever for an smf forum

Oh? I think you might be surprised how much some of the SMF forums have gone for. I've known SMF installs go for 5-figure sums, and that's just the ones I was involved in doing work for on some level.

I'm still not convinced how having animated board icons is actually good for usability, and if it's fast animation it will certainly be detrimental.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

Well, actually, you can set permissions for multiple boards at once by using the permissions profiles ...
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.

But, I don't think that actually handles the visibility permission...

It doesn't, no.

But building the UI to support such is a bad idea because it's an edge case and we don't build for edge cases.

You *could* do it with SQL manually updating the tables, though if it's really that big a deal.
