    OK - Done.

    The forums are now private forums and not viewable by guests. Thank you everyone for your feedback.

    Keep an eye out on the site development threads for more information about future plans for BCB Forums.

    Why private? I wonder do people use their real names. I guess it's safer.

    I think sometimes some members may say something about their life in general on some of the different groups that they don't wish for just anyone to see and get upset. Like daily life and problems

    This was done many moons ago

    The forums were never really made 'private' per se. We are still open to the public and any human is free to join in.

    Only the 'Buddy Groups' were made "Private" - which simply means the threads require you to log in before viewing the contents, and therefore are not indexed in search engines or subject to automatic data-mining, spammers, internet robots, or anonymous users. We also included the requirement to make a couple valid posts, since some spammers and robots could simply join and start scraping group content.

    It allows our members to freely chit-chat in the groups with each other about their daily lives(sometimes health related), without posting it to the whole world.

    All other parts of the forum are completely open, and posts are view-able by anyone at anytime.

    *edit: I also just edited this threads title, to be more descriptive.
