Most people seem to not be so keen on the idea of small boards.
It has been suggested that people might be better able to deal with them (seeing as it looks like they are going to happen at any rate) if they were not publicly viewable.
The thought is that only members would be able to read the posts.
That way people who couldn't post to them wouldn't be able to read them either.
I guess people would be kind of 'taking their chances' in signing up. But they could wait a couple of weeks and then sign up to a different one if they liked...
That way there wouldn't be the 'outside looking in effect'.
What do people think?
Would this make the notion of small boards more palatable?????
