Hello OGM Folks!
As you probably already know, OGM does much of its work in public view. Our regular meetings, for instance, are recorded and posted and made available for anyone to view on YouTube.
Similarly, Jerry and Pete always intended OGM Forum posts to be viewable to anybody (and any search engine) on the web, without any sign-in required. It’s not that way right now, just for the simple reason that the right switch didn’t get flipped during setup.
We would like to flip that switch now, and make all the posts that regular forum members can see viewable by anybody on the web, without sign-in. By making the Forum public, outsiders could view the Forum content, but they could not post unless they were invited or registered and approved to do so.
Any attachments to posts would also be visible. The user information pages, however, would not be visible.
Timeline-wise, we would make the change around the end of November 2020.
Does that all sound okay? Please share your thoughts by replying to this topic, or ping Jerry or Pete.

Thanks for using OGM Forum!
