I just realized something and I'm not sure what to think about it. Anyone - strangers, creepers, and the general public, can view the stories posted here without being a member. Now I suppose that wouldn't bother many, but I for one am not too keen on just any random person stopping by for a read. Heck, anyone could come on here, and read and "borrow" ideas from all the wonderful authors here. (Not saying that's happened, but you never know.) Having "member-only" viewing can help keep track of such things. Also, a lot of publisher's don't want stories that have been previously put on the web. They allow for "writing groups" but that is because there is member-only access, so instead of ten thousand people reading the story, maybe only a possible thousand have read it. I'm hoping, please, that this option can come up for consideration. I'm all for guests browsing the forums, but is it possible to put "member-only" access on the threads containing stories/poetry? Thanks.
