We can do that.

"The Fireplace" - I saw someone say in another thread that they had wanted <snip>

There are two ways to combat that which I know of.... Either change the structure... Like, maybe create subforums under The Fireplace for various non-poly specific subjects like "Home Life", "Parenting", "Family", "Entertainment", etc. so people know those are totally acceptable thingsto be talking about here, OR the active members need to be more proactive about posting in the Fireplace on a regular basis.
Hmm. We could set it off as its own set of boards and offer three to five more boards. Or set it off as a general section with but one board until we have need for others.

And, yeah, I can set Life Stories and the Fireplace to be non-readable to guests.

(EDIT: Those boards have been set to non-readable by guests.)
When speaking of various forms of ain't poly if you're just fucking around.

While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
