Anecdotally, I lurked on the forum for a year or two before making an account, and then I was actually confused by the sudden existence of forum games. A while after that, I wanted to play. I may have made an account sooner if I had access to forum games and could have read them while I was lurking.

1 - are there things that people posted with an expectation of privacy that I'd be violating now if I made it all public?

2 - what benefit are we aiming for, given that you still will need to register an account to post and play?

3 - would your purposes be served if I created a wrapper public forum that people could chat in, but kept this as the subforum of that?  Or would that be too complicated?

I don't actually care one way or the other, just wanted to make sure we thought through everything.
1 - it is not a concern for forum games I think, but currently the Post Your Picture thread is here and likely should be moved.
2 - what iguana said.
3 - I think people are more likely to try mafia games if they were able to read through some games, so I personally would prefer everything to be public. But some people (still a minority) have voted to keep the subforums (i.e. Mafia/Non-Mafia Games Threads) private.

I will make this forum and the game threads public, and I will create a separate forum for Post Your Picture and make it accessible to members only.  Thanks for your feedback.

The change to this subforum seems to have messed up some special settings concerning ability to lock thread and modify posts here. I have contacted theory about it.

I can still modify posts.

Yes, the issue is that I think everyone can now edit their own posts.

It looks like my ability to edit within topics I created is gone, which I need for modding.

I too can not change the number of the day or any of my posts really; this is quite inconvenient

I think it's because you're a mod.

I see that Forum Games is now public, while Post Your Picture is members-only... but are you still going to move Post Your Picture somewhere else? It seems really weird to have it under Forum Games. It seems like it would be nice just to have a sub-forum called Members Only in general, and Post Your Picture can just be a regular thread under that.
