Want to make my tree public but not sure how or if it is. I think it is and would like to make additions to others as well.

Hopefully, this link will help you:

At the bottom of the page is a link for the bulk privacy tool, here you can select all profiles of one privacy setting and change it to another. It will not change settings for profiles that cannot be changed according to the rules, so anyone the system thinks might still be alive cannot be set to public or open but they can be set to private with public Bio and family tree.

With any that you think should be open but are not you may need to check the profile edit page radio buttons next to the death date to mark them definatly not living even if you do not know the date.

Each profile you create has a separate privacy setting.  After the profile is created you can click on the edit tab, then at the very bottom of the page is the option to change the privacy setting.  Or you can click on the privacy tab and make the change that way.  Remember to "save" after making your choice.

Yes, the pale yellow privacy setting allows your family tree to be displayed:  http://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/x-Family-Tree-6929
