I have been overwhelmed with requests lately on what is accessible and what is not. I have all the answers, but want to really review why it is necessary in the first place and how access is derived. 

Forum permissions control what users can see and do within a forum. Here's how users may not have access to certain forum topics due to forum permissions:

  1. Restricted Access Levels:

    • Forums often have different access levels, such as "guest," "registered user," "moderator," and "administrator." Each access level has different permissions.
    • Certain topics or sections may be restricted to specific access levels. For example, a forum might have a "members-only" section that only registered users can access.
  2. Role-Based Permissions:

    • Users are assigned roles within the forum based on factors like their activity level, reputation, or privileges granted by moderators or administrators.
    • Some topics may be restricted based on a user's role. For instance, only moderators or administrators might have access to certain administrative discussions or private forums.
  3. Content Restrictions:

    • Forums may have rules or guidelines regarding the type of content that can be posted.
    • Topics that violate these rules, such as containing inappropriate content or spam, may be hidden from certain users or removed entirely.
  4. User Settings:

    • Users may have the option to customize their forum experience through settings or preferences.
    • For example, users can choose to ignore certain topics or users, effectively hiding them from their view.
  5. Special Permissions:

    • Some topics may require special permissions granted by necessity in duty, rank or position held in ONI. 
    • These topics might include sensitive discussions, classified information, or content intended for specific user groups.
  6. Forum Moderation:

    • Moderators have the authority to manage forum content, including hiding or deleting topics, and enforcing forum rules.
    • If a topic violates forum rules or guidelines, moderators may hide it from view until the issue is resolved.

In summary, forum permissions regulate access to certain topics or sections based on factors like user roles, access levels, content restrictions, and moderator actions. These permissions help maintain forum integrity, protect user privacy, and ensure a positive user experience for all members.

If you want to know why exactly do you not have access to a specific page or forum and topic please let me know below.

- Are companies like Microsoft responsible for incentivizing consumer behavior through rewards programs, or are they exploiting consumer loyalty for profit?
