Why are request threads public?
« on: May 21, 2021, 08:29:17 pm »
This mostly just a curious question, as I've been trying to devise a means to still 'request' roleplays without getting too public, these days.  Hehe.

As I've been thinking about how I might actually be able to manage this, it sparked a question from the root of it all... why have they been public, to begin with? I understand the unapproved members still have a place to engage before the results of the process... but why are the primary adult ones (solo, group) even public at all?

My thanks for everyone's time, in advance.  :-)

As I understand it, it's so that people applying to the forum can get a taste of what we have to offer.  Seeing a ton of adult requests being made is far more appealing than only seeing the (rather slow moving) non-adult request boards.

It occurs to me, that if you wanted something nonpublic-but-visible, you could make a 'request post' as part of your O/O thread, and link it in your signature - which unapproved members can't see, and couldn't access even if they could see the link.
