  • This is strange...Private

    Unless I sign on, every forum is PRIVATE.

    I am having the same problem which is odd since it has never happened before.

      Me too - maybe they have changed some settings so it will work this way. I, for one, think it is a good idea - that way if people are going to read our most private thoughts and feelings they at least have to sign up as members! What do you guys think?

        What I think is strange is at the top of the page it says how many members and guests are on - how can there be guests on if it says private on all the posts?

          Me too, I thought maybe it was something new that was done.

            I just sent Jill a PM to ask if something changed.

              Something DID change. Check out the ICN announcement forum. The whole explanation is there. It's not just you guys, and it's for the good of the board.

              04/17/09 Crohn's disease almost killed me with a combo of extreme constipation from pain medications. My bowel ruptured, I almost died from peritonitis and spent several days in the ICU then more in a private room on the floor. If you have any questions about severe constipation from pain meds please don't hesitate to send me a message.

                Yeah, we had to make the change to focus on safety. Yes, "guests" can still see the front page of the forum.. they just can't read anything.

                I want to try this out and see what happens doing it this way. Appreciate all of your comments and suggestions.
