    Is there a way to opt out of Politics-Religion-Global Warming in the "New Posts"

    As the title says, is there any way to not have the cave show up in the "New Posts" section? It's really annoying to have those threads crowd out worthwhile ones when I'm just wanting to see what's been talked about since the last time I visited.

    You mean like the way it was on the old boards?

    Just click the Forums tab at the top of the page instead of the New Posts link in the drop down.

    Actually, forums that are opted into (politics, gaming/hobbies, rivals) always have shown up in the new posts section, regardless of if you are opted in or not. I think it's harder to get those out of New Posts than off of the front page.

    Thanks...I am still trying to get used to the "new & improved" forums.

    (I only knew that because I didn't like certain things in New Posts, either. )

    Thank you for asking. I have the same question. How can I view Threads and exclude politics?

    I'm interested in Cyclone sports, not politics.

    Just click the Forums tab at the top of the page instead of the New Posts link in the drop down.

    I sense that you're trying to communicate something here....


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
