Want the ability to make a tread private, maybe I'll have to leave nofap to get it.

    I've got no response to a tread that reports an actual bug on this site. The bug has not been fixed either.

    So I don't know how fast they are going to implement a new feature. But the feature is well needed.

    I think I might be faster building a website and doing it myself.

    What do you mean by "make a thread private"? We can send private messages, which often become lengthy threads.

    If you honestly believe it will be simple to build a forum supporting 370,000 porn addicts then go for it. Even through failure you will learn tons, not just technical stuff but also about humility and about how annoying your users' sense of entitlement can be.

    Like when you create a tread in any section e.g. The Journal section and relapse report section.

    I never said it would be simple it's obvious it's no simple task to replicate this site, all I wanted was a site with privacy could have it ruining in an hour with wix, but that wasn't my point, my point was they are very slow, I've already said they still haven't fixed the bug I reported and haven't even got a response so it's obvious that I meant they are slow

    Sorry I still do not understand. What's the difference between a private post in your journal section and a paragraph in a google doc? In the first no-one but you can read it, and in the second no-one but you can read it.

    If you are really desperate to write private stuff in this site (and I do not understand why yet, please explain) the you could set up a second account and send private messages to that.

    Did you read this thread? https://forum.nofap.com/index.php?threads/is-there-a-place-where-i-can-write-privately.253167/

    That's funny so your asking me to explain the private stuff I want to keep private and implying I'm desparate if I want to do that, if that's not trolling I don't know what is

    Not at all, I'm not asking you to explain the stuff you want to keep private, I am asking you why you want to keep private stuff here. Do you see the difference? I have lots of things I want to keep private, but I tend to put them somewhere private and not on an internet forum. Why do you want to keep private things on an internet forum? Can you explain please.

    Because they have sections for it already, I'm just asking them for a private option so i don't have people interfering and so I can speak freely. Also its got to do with sexual health so better to have it on this platform.

    I wouldn't want to keep a hard copy for someone close to find it. Forms seems like a good place for it if they had that feature.

    Sorry, I still do not see why a google doc does not give you the functionality you want.

    I may be imagining things, but you appear to be sidestepping answering my question. There are a million places on the internet to store private thoughts. Why should NoFap be one of them. It seems a totally unexpected feature for an internet forum to provide. Can you give a more detailed 'use case' to explain your feature suggestion?

    The goal of the forums are to share information and experiences with others in recovery. While I cannot say we’ll never have a private journal feature, it would go against the principle of a public forum. I would suggest encryptable apps such as OneNote if you want a private journal.

    Other social platforms like Facebook allows you to lock anything you post to only yourself if you want. it's doesn't change what the platfrum is about people don't use it and people who do don't use it all the time

    Not everyone will use the feature but I know I would be better off with it. And it's not going against what nofap is about people will still share expeiances just the experiences the odd ones like me wouldn't share anyways, will have a place so we can voice our shit and get better nofap for everyone is about improving their sexual health that's the big picture everyone's here for, I know this will help me and people will still get the benefits of post than are not private.

    Awyways thanks for your response :)

    a diary is not a forum neither is a replase report!

    I already answered you and I'm not going to repeat myself.

    I think we already talked about this topic in a different thread.

    It doesn't look like the feature you're asking for is coming to the official package:
    https://xenforo.com/community/threads/allow-sending-conversation-to-yourself.116297/

    As a workaround, you can create a second account (allowed as per nofap rules) and direct message it to get as many private threads as you like. Or just start a regular thread and encrypt the contents...
