Admin Requests Part Quatre

I'm planning on using the Printing Press subforum for the newspaper, is it publicly viewable or is there a mask that controls access to it?

Unrelated edit: I was looking around on other regions' forums to see what kinds of things they're doing, and I noticed that a number of them have built-in application forms that automatically create a post from the response—is there something like that that we have access to? I grabbed a screenshot from Laz if that helps get across what I'm talking about:

 

Even with that picture, I don't know what you mean.  What kind of post are you talking about?  Are you talking about integrating the Google forms thingy (technical term) that you are using for the citizenship applications?  If so, that is a @Winnipeg question.  My question would be: If you want it to be a post in the forum, why not put it there in the first place?  Are you making a simple thing complex?  If there is real value to it, I get it.  I only use google forms when I am forced to do so, therefore I am not familiar with any advantage it may give us.  However, that doesn't mean we can't do it or that there is some great advantage to it. 

We can add a restriction to the masking, if you want to do so.  But masking remains in control of the Admin team and won't be given to moderator level masks.

If you could restrict the Printing Press to the newspaper mask (and higher ranking masks like minister/guardian/delegate as well, I assume), I would be greatly appreciative! The folks who should have newspaper mask are:

@Aelitia @Dilber @Mia @Dalimbar @Reçueçn @Sensorland @Giovanniland @Darkesia @de la Fuentana @Boda @Podium @Teralyon

On the form subject, it was a little more curiosity of what was possible. Laz was using a form stored directly on their forums (not embedded in a post), that, once someone fills it out, it creates a post by them with their responses in a specific subforum. I can do ministry apps pretty easy in a single thread, so it's not of as much use to me personally, but @Overthinkers may or may not find it intriguing for citizenship apps.

Sorry it's taken so long.  I will get to work on this soon.  However, I am still working a regular, office based full time schedule and have a side gig in high gear this time of year.  I don't anticipate having time to work on it until Friday after 5pm.

I hate to be a bother (and double-poster), but I had incorrectly assumed that the HoN mask had access to the printing press subforum, so even though the newspaper mask hasn't been created, my staff can't access it yet and we need to be able to finalize planning as soon as we can. If there's any way this could be expedited I would be extremely grateful!

I don't think we had one because our last minister has Admin masking.  Let's put it on the Cabinet agenda for tomorrow.  Think about what forums you need access to etc.
