I’d like users to be able to create their own “mini-forums”. It’s similar to what this user had in mind, and comparable to users being able to create channels on slack.
Just like someone who runs their own forum, it should allow the creator to post messages to the top of the “sub-forum”, and choose which other users can participate in the sub-forum.
If users could create their own categories, that would get very close to this functionality. However, from the responses to the user request linked above, it looks like that would be very resource intensive and not recommended.
I understand this is not part of core discourse functionality. Is there a way I can do this or something close?
I am posting here and not in #marketplace, because I’m looking to figure out how to do this myself (including if this means coding on top of discourse).
And if it’s just not possible with discourse, I’m open to other suggestions (though obviously I’d prefer to stick with discourse!)
