Hmm... perhaps you should try a babble translator, we might have better luck understanding you. :?

All groups are permission controlled, so yes, you can disable guest access to whatever forums you like.
Yes, you can disable the use of emails, see ACP > Email settings
Yes, you can disable user registration, look in the ACP under Board Configuration

Maybe you can try posting a message in me_09's native language and see how you manage?

In phpBB3 you can, without any MODs :
- Make a forum totally invisible for guests
- Make a forum visible but not accessible for guests until login.

phpBB3 has a very powerful permission system, you can set permissions (view, read, new topic, reply, poll...) for each user group (guests group, registered users group, administrators groups, groups created by the admin...) and for each forum.

If this was my own board, I would certainly try (and would fair well if it was Spanish or German), but this is a strictly English board, and it’s not my own.
I would still be willing to try, but perhaps you missed the fact that I was trying to offer a friendly suggestion so that WE could understand him better and therefore offer HIM better support. :roll: -- it’s for his benefit.

Okay, yes... that’s what I was getting at...
Go to ACP > Permissions [Tab] > Forum Permissions > (select all) > in the manage groups select box, click on GUESTS and click [remove permissions]
This should achieve the desired function.

Let us know if that helps. :D

Oh well... make a page where you ask for a password, and if the users knows it then he's readdressed to the page where the forum is, otherwise there is no way to access it.
Then make this forum unsearcheable to search engines ("robots.txt").
Still, if someone knows the real forum address he will be able to see the index, but if all permissions are of for guests, he won't be able to do anything.
I can't see any more protected way to do this, without over-complicating things.
