Dumb question about board privacy
« on: September 12, 2016, 11:48:41 AM »
OK, I've been around for aaaaages on -and-off, but suddenly, when I really need to know , I can neither recall nor figure out which bits of this board are hidden from non-members?     It's the submissions sub-forum  that interests me in particular right now, but it's worth asking as a general question for future reference.

To be a bit more specific: suppose I post exerpts from an unpublished (and even unfinished) book there, I don't think that counts as "publication" not if it's "members only". I might be wrong about that though.   Clarification on either point, from anybody in the know, would be welcome

Thanks,

-Walkie

cheers! That's more like it.  Now,  I wonder if Admin might consider  making some notes to that effect on the index?

Some of the boards already say, members hidden; not sure why they aren't all noted.

The only hidden board that isn't marked as members, is AS Advocacy. The whole section, Continue Here: members of the community, is for members of the community, so that's clear enough. The Management section is also members only. Everything else is clear enough, so maybe only AS Advocacy needs to be marked as members only.

Bugger that. He reads everything else, doesn't he? Even the mind-numbingly tedious arguments! Is he gonna pretend to not notice it here. just to keep things tidy?

You might not believe this, Jack, but I find the term "members hidden" ambiguous.   Especially round here  :LOL:

In 5 more posts, you can become an elder and have access to the most private board here.

Just spam senseless shit like the rest of us do.
