I don't know if such a thing is possible, but I'd like to have some sort of private thread on here for design notes. It seems like the best ideas and solutions hit while I'm reading BGG, and it would be nice to have something where I could post notes for myself without worrying about other people seeing them. I'm not worried about people stealing my ideas or anything like that; it's more just not wanting my immature rough drafts out there in public.

I could create a Google document for this sort of thing, true, but the thought of keeping things here appeals to me.

So, any thoughts on how I could do this?

Just be careful. You delete a "draft" of a geekmail and it's gone. There is no retrieval.

A private geeklist.

Depends on how certain you want to be. AFAIK private geeklist is only hidden from the geeklist listings, but is still readable by anyone if they know the id.

That's the "No Publish" flag.

This is a private, not submitted geeklist. Can you see it? [geeklist=186198][/geeklist]

Thanks for the answers, all! It does look like an unpublished geeklist is the way to go.
