Going into theory territory, the permissions model is basically 3d, with 3 axes:

  • Usergroup
  • Permission (e.g. submit-mid, edit-low, double-post, …)
  • Content item


The points represent "on" or "off" or "inherited" or "n/a" permissions.

We currently allow choosing of a content item plane and then setting a usergroup/permission matrix from it.

This new feature would allow choosing of a usergroup plane and then setting a permission/content-item matrix from it.

Hello, hoping this issue can include ability to allow a specific usergroup to log in to website anonymously

Thank you for the sponsorship Rishi :).

This feature is about making permissions easier to set, not making new permissions.

There is already a feature for invisible logins, although it needs enabling via the "Enable invisible log-in" option. It won't make them anonymous though, only invisible on online-user lists.
When posting on the forum in v10+ there is an option to allow members to post in forums anonymously - this is set per-forum). There's no option on the comment form though (I'll add an issue for that).
In both these cases it's not a privilege thing, it's a choice thing. I don't think the majority of users would need to restrict invisibility/anonymous as a permission.

If you want to change your sponsorship after seeing this information let me know. You can probably adjust it yourself on here but I've not tested that.

Thanks for explaining, no need to change sponsorship
