from what i remember....chat clubs were opened so that members could go and talk about random stuff there....which would be considered spam on other sections...

and if you are seriously (argh!...i need to stop watching grey's anatomy!) talking about something you don't want anyone else to read....well then use PMs i guess....or MSN or yahoo or AIM....


hi mango..thanx for taking out time to read and post here.lets just say we are discussing an episode of the latest show,and laughing our heads off at how much the show has degraded from what it was originally.some fan of the show,who loves every episode,decides to take out their personal vendetta for not agreeing to their views about the show,and report the post.it happens,quite a few number of times.in fact,its a little tiresome to post politically correct statements on the ccs at times.one way or the other,the posts might offend a section of the fan group.most of the moderators we know are cool with it,since we are not fighting amongst ourselves or flaming for that matter.let me just say that we stopped posting our opinions on the main forum and resorted to the chat clubs for this very reason.how would anyone feel if  we have a moderator's note next day asking us not to discuss other shows on the chat clubs?the worst case happened with another chat club i know.these stalkers actually pressed on the like button before reporting the posts.LOL.just to let them know that they were being stalked.if u read dudu's post on the first page,it says that one of them reads the post...then invites their friend,who takes a look at the "offensive" post...then they collectively pm the mods and report the posts.can we just have some rule in which no person is allowed to report posts from a cc  /post on the cc on which they are not a member?please?

as for the personal stuff, i really need to edit out some of my previous posts in which iv unwittingly given out my age,profession,etc etc.. *sigh*

It is not about concealing 'Secret things', it is about not wanting other people to stalk our CC. The feeling is familiar to a sense of foreboding when someone peeks inside your home. We simply wish to not feel that. Trust me, I don't think someone here will disagree with me when I say that we have alot of stalkers. Stalking seems to have become the hottest pass time activity.
 
If transparency is valued so much, let me ask you a question - Why is the Moderators/Viewbies section restricted ? Don't the members deserve to know how you all function? Afterall, your decisions have a direct effect on IF members.
 
Coming back to the topic, like I said before, Mods will have access to the all Invite only CCs, so they can keep an eye on the members, and the front page will be accessible to everyone so they can see who to PM incase they wish to be members. I think it's fair enough.
 
Only a suggestion though :)

With the current BB coding (or phpBB but I'm sure it's the former) on IF, I don't think it's possible to keep other members from specific topic (in this case, the invite only chat club or whatever that is). The "Members only" tag that is already implemented can keep people who aren't members of IF away but it doesn't work for those who are members. I'm not sure that  the "Members only" tag can be further modified, though. You'd need a unique collective group or "status" (e.g. Viewbie, Goldie, IF-Dazzler etc.) for every invite only chat club to allow only members of that chat club access to their topic. Even then, I'm not sure you can do that for a topic - because you can do it for a section/sub-forum - on a personal home page Bulletin Board-/Bulletin Board-coded forum like IF.

i dont understand much of these technical details about coding coz im not a tecchie,but if it is not possible to do it,in that case,can some new rules be implemented on the cc section by the mods that anyone quoting from the ccs on another forum/cc or reporting posts from an "invite only" cc which they arent part of or posting in that cc gets reported?somehow it makes it more valid if this rule is introduced by the moderators.we are sick of this stalker problem and would love to have some help on this matter
