[Metaculus] When will the feature to share private questions go live?

Question

In the discussion thread posted 27th May 2018, a feature is noted as being in the works "Invite people to predict on your private questions, on a per-question basis." Similarly, a comment from 25th June 2020 saying this feature is highly desirable has +5. Thus, it would appear that the feature is highly sought and already noted as being in development for more than 2 years. So the question is:

When will the feature to share a private question go live?

  • The feature must be available to online on the live version of the website, not a beta or private version.

  • The feature must be available to regular users, not some small fraction of users on a test basis.

  • It must be possible to have designated users join in a given forecast and the summary statistics shown, the same way as public questions.
