[For 1.8] How To: Remove/Disable/Hide unnecessary MyBB features

I'm new here and want to make a small and modest contribution.

This tutorial is for guys, like me, who like simplicity or run small boards and don't need all the features activated by default. The goal is to disable / hide / remove unnecessary features so that the user can experience a streamlined and uncluttered interface. Focus is on user features that can be disabled through the Admin CP without editing code or adding a plugin. So this is what I have found during the recent process of setting up my fresh new installed board:

Disable Portal
ACP > Configurations > Portal Settings > Enable Portal = No

Disable Calendar
ACP > Configuration > Calendar > Enable Calendar Functionality = No

Disable "Send this user an email"
ACP > Users & Groups > Registered > Options > Edit Group > Tab Miscellaneous > Miscellaneous >  Can send threads to friends and email users? = No

Disable "Delete Thread / Post"
ACP > Users & Groups > Groups > eg: Registered Users > Options > Edit > Tab: Forums and Posts > Editing / Deleting Options
