    What is a private group ... ?!?!?!

    Just wanted to let y'all know about a pm I just received. So just be aware .... Private isn't so private!

    "Just wanted to let you know that your post is visible by anyone who goes to the retreat group and reads the messages. If you have not joined, you cannot comment or make a new post, but you can read what is there."

    There aren't any "private" groups. Like you said, anyone can read anything written in any group. Unless they are a member, they can't see pictures or make comments. This group is an "invite only" group, meaning you have to be invited to become a member. By setting this group up this way, it limits the discussions to those people participating in the retreat, which cuts down on outside opinions when something is being decided.

    Once the retreat is over, it may be opened to everyone so that they might see any pictures that have been posted.
    K is for Karen 😊​..................
    Cremation - My last hope for a smokin' hot body.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?


      Thanks for explaining that Karen. For some reason I thought that others could read the Thread Title but not the content. I don't think I need to remove my foot from my mouth just yet. I may change my forum name to Clueless in Carolina.

      I thought it was nice to get that pm; it's a good feeling to know that someone is watching out for me!



        I figured that out when I looked at the group before I registered and got my invite to join. I was surprised that I could see it without being a part of the group yet!
