Suggestion: *Private Threads*
Ok I know I'm not the first to suggest this.

Private threads: users have the option to make their threads visible ONLY to forum members who are signed in OR request that admin adjusts thread permissions to enable the same result. Otherwise, the thread appears as blank or with a message indicating that you must be signed in.

Franky, I don't understand why this isn't a thing here on a forum where people disclose sensitive information in the interest of personal growth. Yes, members have been journaling all this time without private threads, but it would be considerate and encouraging and could mean the difference between writing something or writing nothing at all.

I have seen private threads on other forums using the MyBB platform, therefore it is definitely possible.

I encourage anybody who supports this idea to chime in with a like and/or a comment, as it seems that this needs to gain traction to be taken under serious consideration.

Under heaven all can see beauty as beauty only because there is ugliness.
All can know good as good only because there is evil.

I think that as the forum is setup not only for r&d but as advertisement that it would detract from it's purpose, though this is an opinion and a guess.

In that case, each thread would have to be public, but we could make it so certain posts inside are private. Users would keep the majority of their progress updates as public posts and only a few as private to give members on the forum more details.

There'd probably have to be basic "must be public" posts like the first post in the thread.

Users here have anonymity so I don't see the need for private threads.

Also, we are able to send a private message - PM or email if we prefer discretion.
