The Discourse is Public (Again)

After incorporating some feedback on member privacy, the Pumping Station: One Discourse is now public again.

The only publicly visible sections are Announcements along with a new Events subcategory. Any member can post into these and now they can be easily shared externally with non-members.

There is also a new Getting Started category that I hope new members will find helpful when trying to understand how to get into Discourse or other systems.

All historical announcements have been moved to an members-only archive folder to limit access to old discussions.

All discussions in Announcements and the associated subcategories will be public moving forward.

I’ll add that user profiles and the directory are private on the public facing site, although if you post in Announcements your username will be publicly visible.
