kazukidevnull Posted November 7, 2022 Share Posted November 7, 2022 I know that the plan is to just keep it to invited members only or ones joined trough the Champaign code during the beta, but what is the thoughts in regards to keeping it that way such that everyone who wanted to join had to have a invite code? i know it's something that likely will be not done since we want as many people as possible to join which invite only schemes have a negative affect on, but i also feel that with as many invites each user gets, it shouldn't really have that much a impact on amount of people joining. then again, i just realised that this may prevent people who are totally new from joining due to lack of invites, but then again, if a person are new and but truly want to learn and get a career within the industry, the person will likely join various other social networks such as discord servers, mastodon servers, following people on twitter, etc related to such which will likely quickly provide them with multiple people with invites to give out. Reason for this is that i feel it could reduce the possibilities of things such as bot signups and reduce the amount chance of people double-accounting, sock accs(for whatever reason) and other negative problems forums often have as well as making the forum feel more trustworthy . but as i mention, this is something i can understand if decide not to do, but wanted to mention for hearing at the very least. Regardless of the things mentioned about, from what i can see at the moment, the forum is publicly visible, and while i do understand the reason behind it, i also wondering about the thoughts on making it visible for signed in people only as doing that reduces what sites like waybackmachine, google cache and other scrapping/indexing tools and services(including OSINT related ones) can get access to easily and thus is better for members privacy and possible making it easier to talk about things without worrying it getting instantly indexed/scraped by something and pulled out of context. if combined with invites only, even better if it was combined with invites only, although i doubt that is going to happen🤔 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
