OK I have a related question here.

If I use "separate groups" and I want to have a News forum for each separate groups, can I do that in Moodle 1.9.x? I remember that in 1.9.x, at some point (earlier version of 1.9.x maybe) you used to be able to use "Stanford Forum for general use" type of forum to simulate a News forum (e.g. limiting only teachers can initiate new discussion topics, etc.), but it seems that in the latest Moodle 1.9.x that feature is gone. Is there any work-around that I can set up News Forum for announcement purposes (meaning students can NOT initiate new discussion topics), but using separate groups (different groups can NOT see other groups announcements...)? Thanks!
