    It's empathetic to both sides of the coin.

    I think the TTC thread needs to be somewhere that those still TTC can feel completely comfortable being negative, hopeless & sad whenever they need to. Bcos I think at the end of the day that's when we all MOST need the thread, and the support of others. I know that sounds awfully pessimistic! But if I'm honest I know sometimes when there's a few bfp's & lots of cheerfulness I feel less inclined to share a crappy day, or a hopeless feeling. And recently we've had lots of sadness AND lots of bfp's. So I think it's probably highlighted the need to maybe discreetly figure out something that works for both sides.

    I also definitely think a second thread is a really great idea- Bcos the girls with bfp's need somewhere that they can be completely free to be bloody ecstatic & excited and not have to worry that they might upset anyone. That's the last thing I would want- for someone else's joy to be dampened in any way Bcos they are trying to protect those of us still trying.
    I agree with @Charlie74 :thumbup:

    Other members who want to share their private information can do so openly on other areas of the site anyway, but once personal information is out there, it's out there forever. Everyone is entitled to privacy, and I'd hate to think someone might feel they can't partake in the Pregnancy Graduates thread openly and honestly purely because they're worried about 'strangers' reading about their private life.

    As new members come through the TTC thread we can always invite them up to the Graduates thread once we're comfortable with them.

    Sorry F,H&L - we're not making this easy on you!
    Isn't this the status quo? There is a closed thread, but it's lapsed?

    There is a gap at the moment. There are due in groups for IVFers, but that includes the whole age range, people with first time IVF success, a freezer full of frosties etc. If somebody has a problem or miscarriage people try to be supportive, but they don't get it...

    Maybe we could start with an open thread and see how it goes and move to a private thread if needed further down the track? I'm not sure that trouble makers coming into the thread is too much of a concern - it doesn't seem to happen on this thread so I'm not sure why it would happen on a BFP thread...

    Yep...then another thread would have to be started should that option be chosen Luv😊

    The closed group used to be open but we wanted more privacy so asked for it to be closed.

    When a Lovely graduated from here either @emski72 or myself PM'd an invite to the group.

    If the invite was accepted...the password was then sent. That's how it worked before "the issue" happened.

    Other members of the Group could request for other BH's from different IVF threads (Wazza's for eg) to become members of the private group too.

    That thread is still active hence my & @emski72's offer to hand over the Admin reigns to 2 new Girls.

    I think private, I wouldn't feel comfortable posting pics on an open thread. I'd still contribute but no pics

    I'm not sure what the issue was on the private thread was but what's to prevent it happening again on a private thread where everyone is lulled into a false sense of security and has let their guard down, shared really personal stuff because they felt like it was a secure environment and then further down the track had their trust violated... invitation only is good but it doesn't really help those that haven't graduated and lurkers who may want to pop in and out unnoticed....
