Hi I just noticed that heading the new section for members recent writings and publications there is a notice that says

>> Forum rulesIf it isn't writing-related, please use the 'Off Topic' section.
Posts in this section are only visible to forum members.>>


Is this correct that Guests can't access this section?

Opening up previously private areas is something I wouldn't recommend unless EVERYONE who's posted in there has agreed, or their posts have been removed.

Warning icons and messages need to be consistent with the actual privacy level.

Isn't this thread private and only Current Writing Projects & Published Works to be made public? Bit confused...

That's what I thought, and it was my original suggestion that the area for Current Writing Projects etc be open for Guests. Hopefully, to be an advert' of the benefits of membership of the Forum.

Why can't the 'Current Projects' be a stand-alone item open to the public, or a thread connected to an area that is already a public area not a private one?
