    I also have this when newbies post health threads in the mane forum and things like that. Often you just see the title and are "blissfully" unaware that it is on a public forum they posted. Mistakes are often faster made than you think!
    People use the forum in different ways. I access the individual boards via their links from the forum 'home' page, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. You're of course not the only one to just look at the new posts (I think I've seen you mention that before?) But if you're concerned about personal info, a quick glance to the top of the page will tell you exactly where you're posting. People absolutely have a right to be cautious about posting more personal stuff but really the onus is on each of us to exercise that caution. Yes it's easy to make mistakes, but this type of mistake is easily prevented - and posts can of course easily be edited if need be

    Edit: and the newbies posting those threads in the mane forum obviously don't have a problem with them being public, otherwise they wouldn't start them

    I have gotten much more careful in recent years! Thanks for the tip!

    I had been a member here for a long time before even realizing that some parts of the forum wasn't public. When posting antyhing on the internet, I always assume that everything can be seen by anyone, so I never post anything too private.

    Personally I don't care if the swap board is visible or not

    I can currently see the banner while logged in. While I see how it could be distracting to some, I find it helpful. I spent a lot of time hunting down those resources in different parts of the site before!

    I think the best thing for the seasonal swap threads, would be a seperate sub forum under the selling board I personally feel like it fits better there, and the criteria for the meet-up board is too strict It makes the swap board less cluttered too, and makes it easier for people to snoop their giftee in older swaps too

    That is such a good point.

    Third-ed! (Second seconded?) It seems to be a big enough part of LHC culture that it merits a subforum. When active it basically sits at the top of the swap forum anyway for months at a time, might as well move it up a centimeter into its own category. Meet-ups have a sub-forum, and they seem to occur less frequently/draw less participation than swaps. What a great idea Pixie!

    I don't see a banner but I have adblock activated.

    The swapboard has always been public as far as I know.
    Not a problem.
