Think what you want about "private", but I'll say it again. People (at least some) made posts in the OTC forum with the expectation that those posts wouldn't be picked up by Google, cached and be fodder for search results.

People being able to create a login and view things in a restricted forum is one thing. Pictures of Wedge's kid popping up in a search for "Jack-o-Lantern" because some dick said his kid looked like a pumpkin is another.

I'm going to guess that quite a few regular members posted pictures of or said things that they'd prefer to remain "restricted" and not pop up in Google search results. That needs to be respected.

I think we all agree that things said in a forum that isn't indexed by Google should stay that way. I certainly wouldn't call something that hundreds, if not thousands, of people can read any time they want "private." Nor would I consider information "private" if it can be uncovered in 15 seconds by registering for the forum.

If this is a concern for some I'd suggest reevaluation the information put on an open forum.

Fine. Call it what it is: Restricted. It needs to remain so.

I think everyone is in agreement that it not be opened up. But threads like this for example:

The Perfect Man Cave

which you and I both have numerous posts in can certainly be moved into the OTD which unregistered guests can view.

As a forum owner, and as the forum members trying to attract traffic, this is EXACTLY the kind of content you want to show up in google. Stuff that may bring someone in to the forum that otherwise wouldn't have even known it existed.

Hey there

I moved the Better Call Saul thread to the OTD.

Still working with the current team on mod offers. Hang tight for some changes.
