I've been playing on the Admin panel....

I have been a bit concerned for a while about how some things discussed are seen by all - so I've hidden some areas from those not logged in.

The areas only visible when logged in are:
The Blog Area
The Bear Pit
The Prayer Room
Coffee Lounge
News

Some of this is because of the sensitive nature of some of what is posted, some is because areas like the Coffee Lounge should be somewhere we can relax, without feeling that everyone on the internet can see what is written.

Why are you concerned by this?

I'm sorry - I wasn't aware I was required to answer.

I am concerned. People post things in the Bear Pit which can be abusive. I don't think that portrays the forum in a good light, so I'm not happy that was available for anyone on the internet to see.

The Prayer Room is a place where people sometimes choose to post quite private things. I felt it might be useful to give more privacy for that.

The Blog Area already was hidden from the outside. The Coffee Lounge should be a place for people to relax.

We have had cases where people have copied information from this site and posted it on other sites. I wanted to restrict some of that, particularly from those who are not members.

You, of course, are welcome to disagree with this. But I think I will leave it as it is now.

There had been some private things posted.

Look - I don't care if you don't agree. This place was wide open for people anywhere to read everything. I've tightened that up a bit. My experience on other forums suggests that this does enable people to relax more, and builds a better community.
