Ah see, now were getting somewhere. You even made a seperate table for the threads, nice!
One thing that I point out is that if you are going to make a ACL, you wouldn't have is_banned in the user table. You would simply have them assigned to the 'banned' usergroup, which would restrict access to everything.
Trying to make an ACL (Access control list)? Good luck with that! I have made but very little, highly unflexiable ACL's before.
Try googleing around for ACL tutorials though, there are several tutorials out there for storing and managing ACL's. This is something I need to do myself... I've always used a pretty basic ACL (incremental), but for a forum system you need something far more complicated then that.
There are No Stupid Questions. But there a LOT of Inquisitive Idiots.
