    How about we make the forum private?

    Maybe we could make the forum more private.
    So, if anyone wants to see the topics, they have to join first. We all have our works here, and I wouldn't want for anything of that to be copied. I wouldn't want for anyone to have to go trough what I've gone through with my friend.

    The Critique centre is private Smile The main place where we have our works. If you're logged in into the forum, then you can see it. Try logging out now and you'll see Smile

    D'you mean the other topics like the Character interviews and stuff? Or the site forum? Or chat?

    Oh, yeah, I didn't notice that.
    On one of Maris's forums there's one topic for introductions, and even if you're joined, you still have to post there before you get to see all the topics. I think that's a great idea, since anyone can join and never post, while they have all access to our stories.

    I agree with Lizzie on this. About not being able to see any forums before making an introduction. It sounds awesome, and safer. As for making the forum private entirely, I’m neutral. However you guys want. I'm already joined anyway XD

    What, so you have to post in the introductions? Wow that's really clever Very Happy

    Private entirely? Well... it's always great when we get new members but how many of these new members joined without seeing the Yahoo Question? I'd think 0. All these random guests are people who might've seen this through the up-your website while searching through forums.

    If we get new members, they'd preferably be people who are our friends and we trust and not some random dude who has never heard of copyright. Now that we all know each other, we can trust each other that we won't plagiarise. I remember looking for writing Forums back in May and although I did find one (The Writer's beat) I hated it. I've only posted 3 times there XD At least we know everyone here Very Happy

    Yeah, but there can always be someone who just joins, sets their status to always appear offline, and starts skimming through our stuff taking our ideas. I mean, that happened to me with my friend. Who knows what can happen with some random person who we don't even know!

    Good point. But how would they know about this place? In the meantime, Joce will probably see this and change a setting or something. Maybe the Character Interviews forum should be private as well because that also needs copyright. Well... maybe.

    --EDIT--

    Talking of Character interviews, that reminded me to post on your thread there and now it's gone XD

    The way I see it, the only section that should be private are the Character Interviews and the actual pieces of writing. Possibly the On Writing section as well. They can't really steal anything from the other sections... We just veer off topic anyway XD Books and Readings is about school now, for example.

    This feels like we're talking about a code of conduct for the forum:
    1. No plagiarising.
    2. Once you join, you must introduce yourself.
    3. Do not get angry if there is a veering off-topic. It is natural.

    XD

    The on Writing section, private? Hm... oh yeah. I have a plot spoiler up there. And if I was trying to come up with a new plot (I've got a new idea... but I'm leaving it. Must. Finish. Current. Novel.) and had a possible summary, I would post it there.

    Umm...okay first of all Lizzie, the critique center is private. Second, you do have to be logged in to post anywhere. I think we should agree on something, really.
