How about being able to set up your own forums as a member, similar to Lithium, IGN etc. The members could define their own rules and everything (they are basically an admin of their personal forum). This feature can be turned off of course.
+1 if it has options to provide extreme limitations on the members, such as where, how many, can/not delete, etc.
Either that or as an add-on module, where to get to their "personal forums", you have to visit their profile or a link at the top, ala blogs/gallery, and then hunt them down.
I feel, this is better off as a modification.
ok... any reason why?
I wouldnt like this to be automatic, on an old forum that I adminned, we allowed members to create their own forums. They had to PM an admin and tell them what they wanted. Then (based on how much we trusted them), we gave them some moderator control over it.

This would be a good idea, but only configurable and admin controlled, otherwise you could turn it on or off.
Member forums could also be bad, because that would possibly take away from your main community at the same time...
I would like to try and make something like this...how do I do mods and stuff for IPB?
As I stated before if you achieve this by the means of mods, all will mess up when upgrading and provilegdes and database can be faulty that why it must be implemented not left out.
Nice idea, except I am not sure how many people would use it and if it would be pointless for people because most people would not use it.
I am sure if a member wanted a forum so badly, they could PM you.
These are my words on this issue
"Firstly, what is even more important is to insert two functions of and Main ADMINISTRATOR whose power would be over whole
forum and minor ADMINISTRATOR that would manage only certain subforum; f. ex. let us suppose that I manage many
groups of students. Each university/college could have their own administrator to change the graphics in their area
of forum to manage Moderators and so on Minor Aministrator ACP would have executions' limitations to one or several
subforums- Excelent when merging a couple of forums. No-one feels downgraded. This Administrator outside the manageable area would be avarage user with no privileges.
The Main Admibnistrator ,could of course, manage every nook of the whole forum board." Now you use how invaluable it is, Merging the forums or just wanting to add some functions to Globmoderators. :)
It is similar to phpbb BY PRZEMO (polish modification) function of adding junior admins but their ACP access cannot be restricted to several forums, and now in IPB it could be possible.
I am going to give a big fat no to this one. There are several reasons for this ... the biggest one is that a minority of owners would use it.
I read the argument about the DB being changed because of installing the mod and then the inability to upgrade. As I see it now ... around 50% of mods have some sort of DB change or addition associated with them. Logically this would not even require any DB hacks, just a fancy form in a module and some special permissions configurations. The rest would be handled by the code already written by IPS.
Long and short ... I'm not sold and I don't think I will be. I won't use it ... leave it as a mod.
l asked for something similar when 2.0.0 was in BETA.
l wanted to give certain members limited admin control over individual categories, to save them having to ask admin all the time.
The idea was rejected out of hand.
