  • Security/Privacy Conerns!

    Hello, I am one of the community managers for game developer Whitemoon Dreams. We are in the process of trying to figure out what forums we wish to use with the release of our game, Warmachine: Tactics. As a game developer, the ability to moderate content and limit privacy settings/user permissions is very important to us. I looked around the FAQs and was unable to find any details about what permissions we can allow our users and customization with privacy settings. Is there someplace I can be directed that has more information about this?

    Also, ideally we are looking to import users directly from Steam into our forums so as to not require an additional signup for activation. There are methods to do this on Steam's end, and I have found a couple modifications that would allow Steam information to be shown on the forums, but they are community created. Again, we are concerned about potential privacy threats as potentially sensitive data is posted on our servers. Initially we were going to use Steam's forums but have decided it is not going to work for our needs. Are there any vBulletin created plugins that will allow us to utilize Steam data in our forums? We are looking for the easiest way to integrate user's and their information from Steam directly into our forums.

    Permissions wise, vBulletin is 2nd to none (that I know of) I believe it has the most detailed permissions system of any forum software (opinion I suppose) but you can set almost any permission on a per usergroup AND per forum (AKA channel) basis. The best way to see them is to try our free 7 day online trial here:

    You can give or take permissions for almost anything almost anywhere.

    Unfortunately for your 2nd half, I am not aware of any Steam compatible VB add-ons/extensions. We also do not provide official support for importing data or custom coding but there is a VB5 API that can be used if someone is qualified to code what you need it can likely be done.
