We aren't closing DDCs. They stay open now under the Group feature. I have been planning on suggesting to everyone that we change the title of the group after everyone delivers so that we can shift gears once everyone's babies are born.
Today we placed our top priorities on the table for platform features. Number one and two on the list is Groups and Photos privacy settings. I'm hoping that will come about fairly quickly but until it does we can set up private forums. We really want to keep you all here with us and hate to see you move out of Mothering to keep in touch. So if it's something you want to try, by all means we can do it.
