So, it was brought to my attention today that some people are curious as to the plans for forum visibility going forward:
Membership on Tarotsphere is free.
As of right now, many are migrating out of AT and on to this forum (or others), with new layouts, and new software. To some, that is a struggle. Change is often hard, and if you're not technologically inclined, it's even harder.
Because of this, I've had all areas of this forum visible to all. Members and Guests alike.
I just want to make sure everyone has a smooth transition and a chance to discover what an awesome community we've built.
The exchange boards are visible to non-members but you have to be a member and signed in to start a thread, post, etc. If memory serves, the marketplace forums are also visible, but you need to be a member to post.
Guests can see everything post in almost all areas as guests. I've had some ATers use that feature to help with signing up / logging in problems.
As soon as the mass exodus is over and everyone is settled, I'll revisit guest permissions, including making the exchange boards (and some others) completely members only. This will likely be done July 31st.
Again, membership here will remain free. I do not plan on adding subscriber content.
If you have any questions or concerns, please PM me.

Holly: We'll work on getting spammers out of here, and hopefully we can make it a nice forum again. I still haven't abandoned the grand plan, but COVID put a monkey wrench in the works

Holly: Hey everyone! Please take a moment to check out the new blog topics. I'll be using this feature to turn content from our humble forum into a community driven blog and eventually a digital magazine.

wildrosespeonies: It's been breathtaking and wonderful to see Black Lives Matter have such an impact in such a short period of time. Although the movement has been happening for several years, but it is nice to see long overdue results starting to come in. We need change.

wildrosespeonies: I think we also need a topic to address racism in tarot decks as there are quit a few decks that been called out for featuring racist depictions. I'm talking about ones made in the last few years not 100 years ago.

wildrosespeonies: See for example: both of PixieCurio's decks. JonausJaus's first deck. And several others. (Nobody is saying you can't own these decks but do own up they have harmful depictions of POC.)

Holly: Hi WRP, maybe start a thread to get the discussion going?

wildrosespeonies: I will start a thread on Monday when I'm off.

wildrosespeonies: It's Friday instead of Monday but I made the thread. I think it is in the right spot. Feel free to move it if it is not.

wildrosespeonies: Exactly how long does it take to put together a Black Lives Matter statement? Just curious since it really shouldn't be that hard for the mods to say the forum doesn't tolerate racism and is working on being anti racist.
