Forum / How to Send a Story to a Group Only?

    I wrote a couple of pieces for Groups only. I marked them private and sent them to the group. Of course since the groups were public they then could not read them.

    When I mark the pieces public I cannot send a story to a second group until the first story clears the front page.

    Is there a way to give an 'anyone can read' story to a group only?

    Hi Larry -- there isn't. We figured that a public story should always appear on the front page. We figured the community would fragment too much if public stories bypassed the front altogether. Hope that makes sense.

    i had considered to make the paddy day challenge group 'private' but for a challenge group, privacy doesnt make sense because then you get zero visibility. i suppose larry, you can only hope for pieces to come in at the speed they're coming. which looks good at the rate the stories are pouring out of the community...

    Larry, you could send the story as a "message" to the group members individually, I guess. Not quite the same as having it appear only in the group, but it would by-pass the front page.
