I just tried to post a song, but it would only allow a public post which I don't wish to do. Help?

@kc5, you might want to ask @Eric Distad but I don't recall having a private option here at 50/90. I could be wrong though.

If you cannot set it as private why not just post the title or a placeholder title with explanation in the liner notes that you are not seeking comments? Then, when you decide to share you can simply edit the details. If you don't plan to ever make it public I'm not even clear as to why you'd wanna post it here.

Perhaps I am thinking of FAWM, but I thought there was an option for members viewing only vs. public. Am I confusing that with FAWM?

Maybe. I do know that FAWM has the option to post private song placeholders.

Not as a placeholder. The option is for only those logged in to be able to view. Anyway, thanks for the attempt to help, @johnstaples.

@kc5 After you post the song if you go to the song page (not the edit page) there is an option under the player to "make this song private." But I'm pretty sure that locks the song so no-one can see it but the person who posted it.

And, yes, I think FAWM has the option to have it for logged in folks only. But honestly, who else is gonna come by and take the time to listen to a song? If you're going through the trouble to do that you might as well just sign up for an account.

Yeah making something private only to those who are logged in seems kinda useless. I'd bet 99.9% of all traffic here and at FAWM are from account holders. No one is just randomly checking out songs here or on FAWM.

To be fair, I have some family members who will stop by my profile to listen to my stuff but I'm pretty sure they don't randomly surf the rest of 50/90 to see what's out there.
