Would it be nicer for the user to let the user set which sub-forums they wish to see in "new posts"?
I’d love to shut off the classified ads for the new posts button. At times the first two pages are nothing but one guys ads.

I don’t mind not seeing certain sections pop up on the new posts section. Just threw me off when I thought I replied to a thread in the off topic and never saw it again. It wad a good, non political thread, yet it didn’t populate in the new posts area.

...And please bring back the 'off topics' posts in the new posts.

This area helps us also keep up with what's going in the world besides guns and ammo.
Not going to happen. It’s available to those whom have an interest.

We're adults.
Many are, it’s the some whom aren’t which cause major problems...
 
Not gonna happen, We are a GUN forum, and that's out #1 focus! With all the negative news, rona, masks, racism, BLM, and other Non Gun related topics, the system is completely flooded with crap threads which seriously detracts from what this sight is all about! Think of it this way, doing a google search, do you want one of the B.S topics to come up and bring people here, or only Gun topics? You need to look at the big picture of this sight's mission, not your personal tastes! We staff have enough on our plates chasing all the Crap threads and keeping things in check largely because new folks joining are brought here for off topic crap and they dive right in to the discussions, often with out even a cursory read of the rules!

I can understand not wanting off-topics or another sub-forum to show up in google/et. al.

Just saying, for the purpose of letting the user see new threads/posts, which I think should be a separate issue (I could be wrong, I have little insight into how the forum s/w is setup/written), it would be nice to give the user the choice of which forums should showup in that view, for that user.

Just a thought. Maybe the forum s/w developers could put that on their list of improvements without it affecting what shows up in a search bot?

That is an interesting idea. Off the top of my head I don't recall their being a way to do that with the standard XF system. Though a plugin, etc., might exist. When I dig my way out of the Monday morning avalanche, I'll see if that is even possible. :)

KJ,

I thought this thread is now considered a 'discussion'...no?

We, the folks who like and support this site have to meekly accept...whatever or we're some sort of ingrates?

Those who participate here do so voluntarily for fun and education.

If it's no longer fun because as it exists, it's burdensome on the folks who help run it and who then introduce changes the subscribers find un-fun, if you will, then sure they can migrant away...

How is it not a discussion? Because I posted my own opinions?

Shame on me, I guess mine don't count. Blah, I don't care. Not possible to keep everyone happy so why worry about it?
