  1. even if once a year or something we made the site “open” for a month, or something like that, or even advertised on other forums, we would have enough of an influx to likely sustain the growth rate we currently have if we suddenly had no members.

    but ofc this is just my opinion and speculation coming from someone who has essentially been active every single day for roughly four months, I really haven’t been here that long.
     
  2. It does feel a bit sad having the site closed off like this :(
    I know we're aiming to steer some of the associated crap and risks of this away from Pancake but I found MPA 1 from ED related Google searches, and it was weirdly reassuring to know if I could Google 'myproana *insert ED topic* and dig something up from somewhere in it's past! I think it was nice to see the community growing too (even if we weren't always super happy with the people joining, I feel like Pancake is going to kind of stagnate sooner or later if we stay walled off like this :(
     
  3. Rn Pancake hasn’t showed any signs of stagnation (: and Anama can always open it back up if it suddenly does. This isn’t necessarily permanent.
     
  4. i think it would be cool to have it private and only known by word of mouth! thats how i found it!

    but i don't know, i'm a new user so :)
     
  5. I have no problem whatsoever requiring people to join to have access and gradually opening more to the newbies as they meet various requirements...hey...it has worked fine for Facebook for over a decade. :)
     
  6. I voted ''yes'' to be completly private.
    80/100 of the people here voted ''yes'' too,
    this shows that people need to feel safer and that they have more privacy.

    I really like the fact that the moderators are concerned, and their trying their best to keep people safe
    Good work guys :)

  7. That way we won't get shut down for someone claiming that we're baiting their children into this lifestyle, it should be completely private. That way we will have no trolls.
