Forum should be visible/accessible for registered forum users only

Let’s keep it more secret and discreet. People reveal here kinda personal stories and I wish it was more private.

Also, @Taher how do you deal with bots, adware and trolls?

I would love to do that at some point however currently it’s important to keep forum open for attracting new members.

Most get filtered by the 2 step verification process, those who pass that get flagged by the automated spam filters, and finally the remaining few get flagged/reported by some user sooner or later.

Im also open to alternatives like:

  • making some sections private like Diary, Confession, Need an Advice, Stories etc.
  • let users with certain trust level mark their topics as private to users with similar privilege

For now I will request to delete my personal input on this forum.

I do agree with the point that some areas of the forum should only be accessible to registered users however I don’t think the whole forum should be like that, purely because alot of people on this planet find inspiration/answers to the problems they’re having through forums like this one.

There is a lounge section for higher trust levels if you wanna use it.

I had access, but I lost it for some reason.

When will someone get lounge access?

#9

When you increase your “trust level”. Both of us are members right now. I dunno tho how to increase it.

I just read this and now even I’m feeling concerned because I spit out personal stuff on forum. I think we can’t open up 100% on forums because non-members can read everything. Thanks for posting this BTW.
