Doug and I have gone through all the forum topics tonight and re-set some of their permissions. This means that non-registered users (visitors) can see every single topic heading within TWI but most of the threads within are then unavailable to them for reading. They must register in order to read any further.

We'd like to be welcoming to potential new members but we also want to protect the writing and works-in-progress that are contained within many of our topics. Hopefully, this will let visitors see the diversity of our activities but not give everything away! We'd like to encourage new interest and future participation whilst protecting individual copyright.

Here's how all the topics are now set:

TOPICS VISIBLE IN THEIR ENTIRETY BY VISITORS --
About Us
Becoming a Member
Buy Our Books
Announcements
Welcome Mat
Recommendations
Crowing Corner
Members' Writing Guidelines

TOPICS RESTRICTED TO FULL VIEWING BY MEMBERS ONLY --
General Chat
Spam & Off Topic
Competitions
Short Stories
Novels
Non-Fiction
Poetry
The Play Pen

Miscellaneous
The New Curiosity Shop
TWITYWAC
TWITS
Bridport Bootcamp
Dave's Pit of Pondering
The Word of the Day Haiku
Poet of the Month
The Fortnightly Form
The Monday Flash
Missy's Tuesday Flash
Donna's Flash Fiction Workshop
OU Courses
Other Courses
SPAG
The Reading Room

(visitors can see the topic headings but are unable to read any of the threads within)

If anyone has any further suggestions or thinks a specific topic should have different permissions, please let Flirtybee or I know by PM. Thanks!
