    OK, we're probably going to end up making IS public (going by the PR thread). However, many people have expressed disagreement at making every IS thread public; there's a few threads (like this one) that aren't particularly appropriate for the wider community to see.
    So, which threads do we hide, and which do we keep? Obviously we need to keep this thread hidden, for one.
    I'm in favour of all our financial threads staying hidden (we don't want to panic our userbase by revealing our huge debts and/or bonuses). Same for our 'agreements', like this one; again, we need to keep the trust of our members.
    If we show the Wi-Fi thread, I propose banning WildEep to set an example for members trading hacks. It's fine when we do it (site staff deserve the right to use WonderTomb and other Pokémon of dubious legality), but we don't want the Wi-Fi forum to follow our example and degenerate even further (if it's even possible at this stage).
    Keeping the April Fools' thread hidden would also be a good idea; we don't want whatever happens to get out early.

    We should, however, keep the PO bans thread - our users need to know what kind of behaviour is unacceptable (plus having a 'Hall of Shame' is great; we need to have a good laugh at someone's expense every so often).

    So, which threads do you guys think we should show/hide?
