Complaint: Restricted Posts

Postby sekotsjds Mon Sep 09, 2013 5:59 pm

Admins,

I just wanted to voice a complaint I have had for a long time now. There seems to be a lot of conversations that are restricted to certain users (Admins primarily) that get listed that when a user clicks on it they cannot see the post. I see this a lot and it gets irritating when I click on something to read and it is yet again another restricted post.

I have a suggested solution. Make an area that does not show these posts to us general users. There are a lot of side conversations amongst the Admins that this applies to.

Just a thought.

Point well taken. Our chatter in the Restricted and Moderator forums has it's peaks and valleys. Now there's a few conversation going on.

In the LT Social Club we post "LT Social Club" and then the thread title, maybe we should do the same for the Restricted and Admin forums.

Just an idea. It seems like these days each time I click on a topic it is restricted. I guess us regular ones are not privy to the good stuff! Just kidding.

Thanks for the consideration.

We'll ask CPT SotR if he can do anything about that. He's our resident technical guru when it comes to the actual site.

Actually, the Restricted Forum does not appear on the homepage. Just like you, the mods use the homepage to learn what new posts exist. You want us to do more extra work. :D

You'd know if it was you.
