After my last announcement regarding the Color Collections forum being made member-only we, Specktra administration, kept our thinking hats on and decided that we wanted to do MORE to keep the information protected. We think that we made a step forward with closing the Color Collections forum to the public. We also felt that if we kept at it we could figure out a elegant solution that allowed us to still share and be a resource for OLD (think, released collections) MAC Color Collection information for both forum members AND random internet guests.
After working closely together, taking into consideration your feedback from the last change we made, and thinking of what we could do to make the NEW information safe and allow the OLD information to be shared freely - we've decided to add a sub-forum to Color Collections "The Scoop" and place all NEW color collection threads there. This forum will be for logged in users only who have a minimum of 10 posts. We heard you when you said that simply having the forum closed to the public wasn't enough of a deterrent.
Beginning this week, you will want to visit The Scoop as your primary Specktra resource for NEW unreleased MAC Color Collection information.This forum will be visible to logged in members only, will require a minimum of 10 posts to access, and will be tightly moderated and curated by our MAC Chat Forum Moderators. Once a collection has been released to counters the collection thread will be moved to the Color Collection forum. Please note that this does mean we will be making the Color Collection sub-forum of MAC Chat visible to the public again (AFTER we have moved all of the pre-release threads).
We're EXCITED for this change and it's positive impact on both you and our community. As always, we welcome your feedback.

Yay! Great news
Great news! Thank you!!
Haven't visited in a month or so (so I was really confused. Lol.), but this is awesome! Ty!
It says I don't have permission to view The Scoop thread even though I have more than 10 posts.
Ok, so it's not just me? I came here to see if increased the post count, but it doesn't look like it.
There seems to be a technical issue going on since it affects several members. I already notified the staff, so hopefully we'll solve this soon. Thanks for your patience, guys!

Hmm, this is good news, but seeming as I'm a really new member, I'm not sure where I'm supposed to post to reach my minimum of 10. I'm excited over future posts, not so much the old ones (I moved on to the next collection, like everyone else). Time for me to read up on all the other brand threads!
I was wondering why it had changed I should of read this thread first! before emailing naynadine (sorry).
Ok that explains a lot. I haven't been here in about a week.
i love this most especially cos i dont have to be looking for unreleased collection post among other old posts
This sounds a great idea.......guess i need to get posting then
glad I read this.. I thought I was going crazy for a second lol
sounds like a great idea....silent supporter and stalker here so....hi everyone!
I've always been a little too shy to actually post on here so I think this is a great idea! It's an opportunity for people who are passionate about makeup and interested in upcoming collections but may be too shy to speak to that passion to really get their feet wet and join this welcoming and resourceful community!
I too am a silent stalker - so here I am guys! I love this site & love the information I get here. I totally understand and support the decision. =)
