I create an unlisted post about once a week. Right after I schedule the next blog post for publishing, I create an unlisted post in our Discource community promoting the post & then cross-link from the blog for discussion after reading. Four times out of five, one or more of my fellow moderators contacts me to tell me the link to the blog is broken. They don’t realize the post is unlisted pending blog publication.
I’ve gone as far as demonstrating the creation of an unlisted post in front of the entire company. Still I get these frantic pings that I’ve posted a broken link.
When I whisper, it’s quite obvious to those who can see it that they’re looking at something most people can’t see: the text is grey and italic. Super-obvious.
When I make a post unlisted, there’s a crossed-out eyeball next to the title and that’s it. It otherwise looks perfectly normal.
Please consider updating the styling of unlisted posts to make it more obvious that you’re looking at something most people can’t see.
