    probably because vBulletin handles private forums differently (and better) than UBB.

        Maybe it isn't that easy. I don't know how UBB works but if it was that easy vB would probably have it.

        It only takes 30 seconds to make it private again anyway.

          i have 20 private forums. that would be 10 minutes with your math to make them private, plus the time i spent looking for them.

          and yes, it is that easy, and its not there

            Well how do you know how easy it is?
            There isn't simply a flag for private forums in vB. It involves various records in the permissions table among other things.

              theres only one option to make a forum private in the forums>modify>edit

              i could edit the permissions later. at least they would not be open for everyone.

                But when you make a forum private it doesn't make a change to the forum table. It changes other tables like permissions.
                If you look in the forum table's schema you will see that there is no field for "private" or similar.
