Option combination[ 10 vote(s) ]
1.Keep as it is 0 / 0%
2.Combine options 10 / 100%

I want to suggest to combine these two options:
1a. Only for myself
1b. Available to all
2a. Show only
2b. Show and allow ordering

3a. Private
3b. Public, show only
3c. Public, show and allow ordering

The current option set allows 2x2=4 different settings, but with only 3 unique results. That's why I propose to merge them into a single option with 3 settings. Besides that it's a little confusing that while you select "Only for myself" you still have to choose whether you just want to show your model to everybody or whether you want to show it and allow ordering.

Besides that, I always want to check the printed model myself before I allow ordering. Just to make sure things work the way they should. Right now the option defaults when uploading are to show and allow ordering. I understand this helps filling the public model database, but up to now I have always selected private mode when uploading. And this seems a more logical default value to me.
