Just tested with my "no-staff"-account, and was given the possibility to add a new topic to "News and Announcements".

This is also a result from the weird permissions system from the forum setup. I can't add topics there too, this may be because Mageia helpers is my default group currently?

Isadora It should be no problem configuring the forum as I am part of the Brazilian forum admin sometimes we have to solve these problems there.

doktor5000, also can this be so, for example wobo already read the part of the group founders say they do not have certain permissions on some forums

We look forward rather Isadora, thanks for the prompt response to question.

News and announcements are OFFICIAL news and announcements.... So write access only to Mageia Founders (plus admins and global moderators off course)

If you were able to create a topic with an unprivilegied account Isadora that means there's a leak in the accesses
I'll check that out...

Thanks for reporting :-)

(if there's a need for unofficial announces week could create a subforum under the wizard's lair...

Thanks maat, is only slightly different from the Brazilian Forum, but as I said it was just a doubt which has now been clarified.
