Be able to set read only, post, vote or comment permission for a forum
Have user permissions so that where some users have access to a forum, you can either allow them to read the forum, post in the forum, vote and comment, or a combination of these, rather than Open or Closed to all users with access.

We would find this feature very useful. We have an external forum intended for client feedback and an internal forum intended for employee feedback. We need to provide our employees access to the external forum for obvious reasons, but we would like to restrict this access such that they cannot vote on the ideas. We enforce this rule verbally within our organizations, but doing this systematically would be much more efficient.
