3 - You would need to create a new usergroup, give that usergroup permissions to the gallery, and use the promotions system in vBulletin to move them to that group when they have met the criteria.

Also, I think a Global On/Off switch would be a nice addition to the Gallery. Makes it easy to turn it off when doing upgrades, maintenance, etc.

You don't add a link to the gallery until you get it set up and you're ready for your users to see it.

I think he means more for after the install. For example, PhotoPost has an on/off option, and a text field where you can put a message to be displayed when the gallery is turned off. (Like the On/Off switch for vBulletin itself.)

my own personal case is similar to your 3rd question. I have initially installed Gallery on a test location, work my way through it and after everything was fine, installed on my live site where it has been for 2 or 3 days without my users knowing it because it's not ready to go live yet.
