Laughing The hosts I had talked with earlier said they thought it would be helpful to allow other to read the posts so they could see how players behaved in that game.

I know that I have received some useful insights from people reading the posts about games I was involved in and providing suggestions.

IMHO Angel the whole private thing has been a misnomer from the start, there would have been less confusion if they were just listed as being seperate from the rest of the topics.

Greetings all,

I thought the idea of having everybody being able to read the posts would provide a good resource for players interested in the game as well as a good way for replacement players to know not only the position of the player they are replacing as well as some insights to that players diplomacy.

If any questions regarding the game arise, rather than posting on the forum players can e-mail the host exclusively, there is no need to ask a question that is off topic in a Forum relating to the game.

I would vote for anonymous users able to view, only players able to post.

I suppose there could be an option for "secret" posts in a game related forum if all the players/members want it that way, but then some folks might try to persuade private forum members to go that route as a price of getting in. The real question is: why would anyone want that much privacy? Sad
