Creating and Playing Cards — Community vs. Private Content
When you create a deck of cards, you have two choices to make about how public or private you want your content to be.
The first choice relates to who can PLAY the deck. The most exclusive option is to publish for personal use by you and the creative team. This is the default sharing selection. The next level allows you to define a Special Guest List (identified by email address) that is allowed to access and play the deck. The Team Up option allows the deck to be played by anyone with a Diamondtime* account, and the Anyone option allows anyone to play your deck (in demo mode), even if they are not registered or logged in.
The second choice determines who can CREATE from your decks. In other words, whether other people can use your creative content in the making of their own cards. If you check the box below the audience choice, all card content uploaded will become a part of the Community Resources, and others will be able to reuse it, provided they are included in your PLAY setting. For example, if you only allow Special Guest List to play, then only Special Guest List can copy your cards and images when you check the box. If you do not want the contents of your cards (illustrations, audio, text) to be accessible by anyone but you and your team, then do not check the box.
Note: if you are a member of a creative team, everyone on that team will have access to the cards and creative assets published by the team. Also, everyone on your team will have access to your email address.
‘Listing’ Your Deck in Team Up Community
If you make your deck available to the community, you also have the option to include it in the Team Up directory. Check this box to include your deck in the Team Competitions and to have it display in the Power Spheres ‘Add Decks’ menu.
If you want to restrict access and visibility of your deck to only those people who access it through a deck link, do not check the box, and share the deck link directly with the communities of your choice.
