I'm not part of the 500, but I can see everything in here... shouldn't it be for 500 members only? Or would that be just too crazy to try and attempt?

There used to be a whole 'nother page with 500 Message Boards, but they were rarely visited. They were moved here fairly recently, in hopes of increasing traffic and visibility.

But I don't think there's a problem with letting everyone see the 500 boards. It's not like we have any evil secrets. Well, not many evil secrets, anyway. And maybe someone will read something here and decide they'll want to join the 500...

Someone correct me if I got this wrong.

I have an evil secret that involves duct tape and a mold spores, but I'll only share it with 500 members.








Ok - I have no secret. :mrgreen:

LOL. Yes, Glenn is the one we have to watch. He keeps giving all the secret stuff away.

Glenn! I said don't bring up the duct tape thing!

There really isn't anything secret in the 500 anyway. There just needed to be a convenient forum to communicate information to them. Also, the public nature of it lets other members see what is available to 500 members--and that's a good thing too.

The private forum really never took off. Dividing time between two forums with basically the same people was counter-productive.

My evil secret is that everytime I believe that something new may be on the 500 thread it ends up being a stupid spammer who somehow has infiltrated what used to a spamless board :x What is it that they are hoping to accomplish? I just don't get the bombarding a Christian board with smut as far as that goes I don't get the flooding my inbox with spam considering that it goes directly into the spam folder and gets deleted without so much as a tickle from me. It is just another task- glance over titles of spam to see if anything not spam slipped through check all- delete grrrrrrr :x

I know :) I've started collection the IP info for Deb, too (her suggestion - wish I'd thought about it sooner!) That may help slow down the flood.

For meself, I like having it this way, it does let others see what they could have as a 500 member. Myself I did just as a means to support the site. Everything else is just added blessing as I see it.

I don't now about that, I can be rather productive with counters. Cabinets too..
