It's January 1st 2004, Happy New Year. The forum is just gettings started so there's not much here yet.

It's all pretty easy to use, just click the Help link at the top if you are not sure of anything.

I just enjoyed your article 'Building a Strong Visual Identity for your Website', which I found on the website.  It was great.  I look forward to participating in your forum.  Thanks, again.

I can only wonder why Google didn't show me this a long time ago; I've been reading the site since a few months back - this forum should get some extra traffic coming in -- and a better hotspot on Google, one could hope!

Google didn't show the forum because it's only just started on Jan 1. It hasn't been made 'public' yet, it's only been announced in the WPDFD newsletter.

Should I keep it 'private' or throw it open to the Web at large? What do you think?

I believe you should convince more people to sign up for the newsletter, in turn informing them of the forum, rather than just opening it up on the front page. This would create a sort of filter for the posters, but at the same time it does not limit the potential activity that can happen here on the forum.

Great website. Glad you started a forum. It was a little hard to find the forum from the website though. I had to use search to find it. Good luck. Hope a little of designers join the forum.

Keep the forum 'private'. This may go against the idea of the web being an 'open community' but it should help to keep the forum focused. It will be a lot more useful for designers (for me at least).

Several things -forums among them- tends to became worse while getting bigger. There are already huge forums over there. Why not to choose to maintain this forum 'private'?
