Subscriptions - spoiling the surprise. (Hey, Rachel!)

Yes, I know this is, technically, feedback, but I thought other people might want to know about it as well.

Did you know that anybody that subscribes to you can see all your projects, not just the published ones?

If you did, good for you. I didn't, and now it turns out that quite a few people have been peeping at projects that I may not finish for some time, if at all, and all without me knowing. One recent planned project I had high hopes for has just had a setback today, and now may not happen. Subscribers may have been looking forward to it, and I may now be disappointing people without being able to prevent it.

I'm not saying that anybody who subscribes to me at the moment would spoil the surprise for other members, but there is always the chance that somebody could spoil things. I think many of you reading this will know the kind of person I mean, even an actual example.

That means that there is at least one surprise project out there (not one of mine) that could be spoiled by what is probably just a line of dodgy script.

So, if you are planning any surprise projects, don't start writing them up yet, unless you have no subscribers, and if you are reading this and able to fix the bug, please, fix it quickly.

UPDATE: Link to proper "feedback" thread

Kiteman, shame you can't tell, as far as I know it's only ones you made since they subscribed because I was suddenly getting comments on unpublished 'ibles, thankfully the top secret ones are hidden for now, I'm not completely sure about it all though since there was a comment made on a test 'ible but only by one subscriber of mine who may have been on before then...

I've just had a look around my existing subscriptions, and I can't see things I used to. I wonder if it's fixed?
. Now all the iBles showing up in my subs are published.

Seems so, I asked Adrian to have a look at mine, all the unfinished projects are invisible again.

Ah safety at last...

I don't subscribe to people. This is ibles, not myspace
I feel it makes it easier to keep up with friends projects....
So bitter for being so young! :P
Hehe, your not the only one that says that
This is Kiteman. How can you not subscribe?
