Thank you for your reply. Just to be clear...
Say I have these 3 usergroups:
- GENERAL: access to most -- but not all -- forums.
- SPECIAL: access to same forums as GENERAL, plus the SPECIAL forums
- EXTRA-SPECIAL: access to same forums as GENERAL and SPECIAL, plus the EXTRA-SPECIAL forums
I do not want members of the GENERAL usergroup to be able to register for any other usergroup, and I don't want SPECIAL to be able to register for EXTRA-SPECIAL. I could be wrong, but it looks like this is a registration form where anyone can choose any usergroup they want.
I can certainly see the value of users being able to choose their own groups, but our situation is such that we need to limit access to some of our forums to only people who paid to attend an art instruction webinar we are presenting. It's so they can share their progress with other attendees and the instructor without the worry of "outsiders" giving non-constructive criticism.
An add-on that would let me import a list of email addresses into a PRIVATE usergroup and then allow those users to somehow complete the registration would be great. If the email address already exists in the forum db, the import should add the Usergroup to that user's profile and not change anything else.
I'd be first in line for an add-on like that! And I don't think I'd be alone, either.
BTW: The reason I posted the above is that your screenshot didn't appear to have anything in it that would prevent anyone who wants to to join a usergroup, which isn't what I want. I'm basically looking to create (large) private access groups.
