User Role as a substitute for Groups
Thank you for this wonderful software, this has really saved us months of effort.
We would like to create private discussions for multiple groups of users who do not have any special privileges, but just so they can discuss their own topic, an user in one topic has no rights in another, after searching online, I see that the groups plugin is hosted only and I saw another discussion about being able to set custom permissions to a specific category using user roles.
The idea is now to create multiple user roles for each group and assign permission to that category only to the members of that role. Will this pose scalability challenges in the near future, or is that not an issue, i.e. if we create say 200 user roles in the system would it create any performance issues or any other kind of issue?
