I highly doubt that it's being employed here, as I've never seen or heard of an access-denied landing page.
Its may employed here. I think I've seen hints of it in the RSS feed.
And you dont see it if you dont have access, it wont be in any feeds.
They probably have threads for moderators only.
I'm not who you think I am.

What do you mean by "hints"?

And is it really possible that they're so careful not to post links from a hidden forum into a public one?

I've seen things that where worded in normal sentences that didnt have a location on the forums. Could be just coding though...

Yes, it could be in a separate topic.

Wasn't there a time where Dan offered if you send him a copy of your drivers license he'd give access to certain threads... seem to remember hearing something like that from an original ddfer. ..

I see, though it's always useful to check the status of the poster. IMO your status is technically high enough to land you into one of those groups if they exist. If you're not par of one, I'd bet that they either don't exist or are for special groups handpicked by mods.

Whatever the truth is, the mods are definitely getting a good laugh out of this thread. Maybe they even have a thread where they laugh about us.  ::)

It's actually very easy to tell.

Just take a random high poster and count their posts and compare to their official post count.  I'm sure the post count would count all posts.

Sure, I'll do that next time I'm on a flight with bad wifi.

Are you kidding? There's got to be a better way.

There also may be a dead zone where deleted threads end up and still be included in the post count. I would also imaginge that such a section could be set similar to JS that it would not be part of post count.

Interesting... I remember getting mobile notifications that updates were posted to the "AA auditing/shutting down accounts" (or however it was called) thread, long after the thread went missing..

Hey mods! I'll be checking my PMs, I believe i should be eligible for an invite, seriously, PM me.

Many forums have restricted areas and there is no way you can tell.

Hmmm. Maybe only some of us can tell.
