    Hey @twiggyleaf, there's a beta feature called "public forums" that lets the GM choose specific forum threads to make public.  It's sort of tailor made for play by post games.

    We're using it here for the Fat Pig campaign:

    https://tobuyafatpig.obsidianportal.com/public-forum

    Let me know if you want to try it out on your campaign, and I'll add you to the beta.

    Thanks @thaen, that's good to know  I'm not sure we want it to be public at this stage.  I'll see how it runs for a bit, and also speak to the others to see how they feel.  If we decide to "GO FOR IT", I will be in touch with you and also look again at the "Fat Pig" example.

    I must also really commend your active participation on these "forums", or as is now the preferred nomenclature, within the "community".  (I didn't see anyone commenting on the change to the campaign page links, but I thought it was a good change.)

    @twiggyleaf, sounds great, whatever works for y'all.  No pressure.

    Thanks for the commendation!

    Haha!  I made that change from "Forums" to "Community" to satisfy my need for consistency.  On the Support page, the same link was referred to as "Community", but in the Quick Links and in the Footer it was called "Forums".  And "Community" seemed like a good way to differentiate it from the "Campaign Forums".  So I standardized on "Community" in the site navigation...but feel free to call it whatever you want.

    The best part of it being online is the influx of people from your region of the world participating- Lots of people from Great Britain and Europe.

    Well, we finished off the first mini session of the MYSTERIA Play by Post adventure.  You can find the latest log in "JAILHOUSE ROCK".  It was a good little session but only three of us took part.  We used the "brackets dice bracket ENTER 1d-whatever brackets end-dice brackets" TOOL SYSTEM available for private forums on ASCENDANT sites, and I have to report that it worked out really well.

    But the main reason I am including it in this thread was that I was once again reminded how the Covid-19 situation still has its restrictions.  Of the six of us in the group, one was not involved due to needing a break, one not involved due to vision/print/tech details and one not involved due to mental stress related to the Covid-19 situation.  I believe all of these are Covid-19 related, in actual fact.

    We are used to playing actual TABLE TOP games at a LOCAL AUTHORITY venue that is currently closed.  I suspect it will be some time before we are permitted to "get back to normal", if that status is even something we can look forward to.  At the moment, we are all adapting, and carrying on as best we can.

    I look forward to hearing other views...
