Is there good stuff I'm missing?

I found this message while looking for something else, and thought I'd revive it.

There's a note at the bottom of the search page that gives a link to click on in order to search "private forums".

So, what is a private forum, and what are you hiding in there?

Or is it built into the UBB software, and not a part of TFL?

Sorry, I didn't see the original thread, Walkin' Man. Thanks for the revive, boing.

The system does allow for the setup of private forums. We have none. I'm not sure if private Forums would show on the Forum listing or not. Perhaps Spark can tell us on his return from the Blade Show in Atlanta.

Over on Bladeforums.com they have a "private forum" exclusively for manufacturers, dealers, etc so they may discuss aspects of the biz..Spark or Mike must edit a person's permissions so they may participate

Thanks, DC. I never realized that one was private.

There's your answer, boing. If private Forums are set up, they will show on the Forum list.

Thanks, DC and Rich.

Is a private forum being considered? Now I remember some discussion awhile back about setting up an LEO forum, and the possibility of making it private for the protection of sensitive tactics, etc... The consensus seemed to be that such an arrangement would further the "Us vs. Them" syndrome. I'd agree.

No private forums are planned.
