    Question User Ability To Hide Threads From Selected Forums

    A long requested feature has been to have the ability to hide certain forums from showing up in various parts of the site (i.e. don't show Politics or Gaming threads on the Recent Posts list); with that in mind, I'm putting the finishing touches on some coding to provide that capability and need final feedback.

    Right now you can get to a list of recent posts a few different ways..

    1) Clicking on Forum in the navbar
    2) Clicking on What's New? in the navbar
    3) Clicking on New Posts in the subnavbar

    Ideally you'd have the capability to drive all three functions off of the same preferences, but I have to implement it in stages to get the functionality in production sooner rather than later. With that in mind, please vote on the included poll as to which of the three areas you'd first like to see the ability to hide posts from certain forums. To be selfish, #2 and #3 are the easiest based on the code I've already produced.

    I hope to have code implemented by the weekend for at least one of the sections, and will release the other sections once I'm comfortable in the load impact from the additional queries and have fully tested all the various scenarios.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    I have no idea what you're asking me, but I'm going to go with yes.

    I think it is a good option that people will like, but i voted no preference, as long as it can be done, and people know how to do it, I think they will be happy

    All I know is, do whatever the "Recent" threads used to do. This applies to the mobile version too! Recent used to exclude the cave and Iowa (in-state) threads. "Recent" was perfect!

    Anything that allows the site users to determine what their site viewing experience looks like, rather than have it dictated to them, is a good thing.

    I like seeing the threads with the newest posts no matter what forum category its in, I can go look for a certain thread if I'm looking for any new info if its not on the first page pretty easily
