I'll fix the formatting thing in due time. It's not meant to strikethrough unless there's white-space on either side so that you can still have a double-dash.

So, this is a question re: public/private topics. This topic is public, right... but if there's a link in here to another thread that's in the private area, what happens when non-members click on that link?

is there only a "Public" "introduce yourself" topic. Perhaps a private one would be good?

In reply to Margot Roth's post on Thu 13 Sep 2007 :

If Enthusiasts visit a link to a Members-only topic they will not be allowed in.

Chris - Two "Introduce Yourself" topics would be too confusing for everyone. That's what we agreed on back in March when we discussed the specs with the community. And I think it works really well the way it is now.

Having said this, we didn't just merge the Intro topics of the previous Forum and Community conferences and made it public. We've always said that everything that was originally posted in a private topic will stay private. So if you need to access the old "private" Intros, they are here: OLD D-Word Community: Introduce (members-only link)

Are you all aware of the My Topics options? You can totally customise your D-Word experience now by having an individual selection of topics and receiving email disgests (which still look a bit rough right now but we'll improve that).

Awesome that links automatically get created, without having to do this anymore: <link>. Well done!
