Stupid question about private topics

Recommended Posts

Okay, I know everyone but me knows how to do this and I'm just a moron, but would someone be willing to share the secret of adding participants to a private topic in these here forums?

You can add individuals to one-on-one private topics from the dropdown you get when you click on their names. To create a roundtable-type discussion, yeah, they need to be in your contacts. The question is, once a discussion like that is going, how can I invite more people?

I've only had one private topic crop up and it took me about 3 weeks to notice it.

If memory serves correctly, that problem came to light about 1-1/2 years ago and I believe at the time someone from TPTB replied that a fix was underway by the Infopop(?) folks and would be out soon. I guess they forgot about it.

The answer I got from the Infopop people was that removing people from private topics is in the help but not in the actual forums, which is apparently the documentation getting ahead of the implementation.

 

As for *adding* people to an existing private topic, they said it was one of their most requested features (um, *duh*), and they were looking into it for a future version.

 

So, to sum up, the Private Topics thing is a completely worthless feature when it comes to any practical application. Infopop would do better to expunge it from the application until such point as you can add and remove people from private topics, since all it shows now is that they have distanced themselves from the users so far as to be batting at third base.

 

(They apparently *have* heard enough to put it on the list, but it's apparently not at the top.)
