Then you weren't reading what I said properly.

What I said in no way reflects what *SMF* is doing. That's why I said 'in my case'. I thought it was fairly well known that I was working on another forum system based on SMF where I removed the calendar and made it into a plugin that didn't require any edits to work... whereupon I realised all the limitations it actually had and the integration with topics is a curse, not a blessing.

Separating this stuff into a plugin means you can bolster the plugin with calendar-centric features. More importantly, you can separate out the permissions so they're inherently not dependent on main board permissions, which ironically would solve every single issue you've raised regarding board access.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

Nothing turns to hate so bitter as what once was love.
