To be Googled or to not be Googled

As Google News has been googling our site for news for a while now...

I've made the decision to make FYM and War available to registered members only. This will keep these two forums from being googled.

Will it tell them that when they try to access the forum?

Lurkers wont know its members only now since they cant read this thread.

Unfortunately, having a Moore thread googled... and end up on the main Google News page... isn't good for this server.

I would like to see It's Official, Zoo Confessionals, and Journals restricted to members only, because it's pretty personal.... then there's the pictures posted in Lemonade Stand, which I think should be restricted as well....

but that's just my $0.02


I thought FYM was the reason why Interference were being Googled.

I agree with soulfo. Those three places tend to be private. Not something we should be sharing with...you know...the others.

PM = PRIVATE Message


anyway... only threads are googled, no PMs, or journals.

if the whole forum is for members only, then we'll never get any new members...some of the forum has to be visible so people will want to join.

and if you really want certain things to be completely *private* then certain things shouldn't be posted on a message board...anyone can pay to join and read anything they want

nothing on the internet is completely private whether it be here at interference, PMs, aim, msn, or emails

with some of the arguing (not very newsworthy) I see in FYM, I think it's a good thing for it not to be googled

Can't you just set it up to Googlize the U2 News Forum?

I really don't think we should shut the forums down to lurkers

This could really shrink the pool of people posting in FYM.
