Um yes you do.
It was listed as private (in the box where it detail the most recent post) like the abuse forum is or talk amongst yourselves when you aren't logged in. i was logged in and it said "private" so i couldn't access it. later on that day it was back to normal.
Um, yes we do. LOL! We changed things awhile back and I totally forgot (and didn't even check). Deepest apologies. But not an actual forum. Just a category title.
So it's open now? Perhaps something occurred when some settings were being worked on and it was reverted back.
Sometimes it shows up as Private for me, even when I'm logged in (it says "Private" in the second column...the one that says "would you be upset, posted by..." on the screen-grab posted by limette above). If I click on the subforums, it lets me view them like normal.
It seems pretty random as to when this occurs, but I have noticed it maybe 25% of the time when I come to MDC.
I can access it. I don't think I've ever posted there, but it seems like I'd be able to just fine. It just lists it as Private (for me...not sure if this is the same problem the OP is having).
