Lightbulb Hiding Housez + Contest Threads from Non-WI Members

I was wondering if there was a way to "hide" Housez threads (+ WI member contest ones, since a lot are room decorating ones) from visitors. Kind of like how the Gift Exchange is not visible to those that are not Gifted (or Gift Gurus), it would help to make Housez + contest threads viewable only by, say, Webkinz members + above.

Reason I would love to see this put in place is due to the problem with housez rooms being entered into the Kinzville Newz contests by those that did not make them. I know Grandmai's was proven to Ganz, and hopefully Newsboy's will be too !!

Granted, if one creates a housez room for the contest, it is best to not share it until the contest is over, but some people may already have rooms that they decide will work for entering into a contest. In this case they may forget to go back + temporarily delete their rooms from view.

I know that this will not prevent unscrupulous people from entering housez rooms that they did not enter, but it will cut down on the entire internet population from being able to do so.

Pictures that are saved as attachments can only be viewed by members.

Pictures that are posted using tinypic or photobucket, etc, are viewable to guests too.

hmm, good idea. it seems like that is happening on most of the decorating contests. it could be some unfailtful WI member too, since you don't put usernames(I AM NOT ACCUSING ANYONE. JUST A POSSIBILITY!! )

Oh that is so sad that it had to be a member that stole that one then

What about pictures that are saved to our WI albums, then posted to our threads using this Click the image to open in full size....

Can non-WI members see those ?

That's a good idea! But that's pretty sad that a member would steal someone's room design.

The problem with that is that this is a website where anyone can join (and I'm glad it is). All you need is an email address. It wouldn't prevent anyone from joining and stealing a room.

Ya I know. I just looked at the forum statistics + we have close to 190,000 members !!

I was just saying that the odds of one of 190,000 members stealing it is lower than the odds of the billions of internet users doing so. And even though it's just, what, an extra step or two to become a member, some people are that lazy * I hope *

the best thing anyone can do is not post their contest pictures until after the contest ends. then they can share on a thread of this 'WAS' my room entry... but that is my opinion. hope it helps someone. I live in FL so none of our 5 accounts are eligible to enter any of the contests. I put mine on mypage in WW

---------- a3doglife added 2 Minutes and 21 Seconds later ----------

Some are not creative so it is easier to copy. I'm sure you'd have to cover your paper in school too.

I think that's a good idea, but it would be hard to follow through. As AnthonysMommy said, anyone can join. Maybe people with more than a certain number of posts would help? Maybe some people only join to get rooms or join contests (I'm not sure about that, but there has to be some people that do that).

One of the reasons I joined WI was because I wanted to be able to view the rooms in the "That's So Posh!" sub-forum. I couldn't see them as a Guest. I didn't know there was a difference between Attachments and other pictures. Huh.
