I’m getting close to wanting to get my Inform game into Beta test, but I would like to be able to set up a private forum so that we can all of us (Beta testers and myself) communicate together.
Is this something that I can do here, or does anyone know of anywhere where I could set such at thing up?
All the best
Nowadays, I’d say the easiest way to do something like this is probably Discord, although that’s more of an instant messenger than a “true” forum.
I am a retired school teacher. I still maintain a website that I used back in the day. It contains a commercial Xenforo based discussion forum that has been dormant since I retired. I have maintained the site and and the discussion forum software. It is operational, secure and up to date.
If you would be interested in a private discussion area dedicated to your beta test I could set that up for you. You would be the moderator and no one would be allowed to access the area without your permission.
There would be no cost involved. I keep it for nostalgic reasons and may use it again sometime in the future.
If interested, send me a private message.
PS. I have no intention to step on this forum’s administrators. If they would like to facilitate the service or feel that this offer is improper, it will be withdrawn. Thank you.
Easiest thing would be to start a group message here. You can add as many people as you like.
Yes, what Dannii said. You can invite multiple users to a private message, and it will behave just like a forum topic, only just visible to invitees. You can also add and remove people from the group message at any time.
