Can the politics forum be hidden from guests or even better removed?

Dude your first comment in here was political.

 

You keep using that word like it has some relevance or is an insult.

 

You can sing it if you want to. Go ahead.

My first comment in here was political? Uh,LOL.

Not really. The forums here are like most sites; money sinks. The front page articles are what really matter. Only one has been political so far--hopefully that never happens again. 

 

What really hurts Neowin is the lower quality articles of late along with the apathy towards fixing the commenting system. Their loss I guess. 

Maybe you just don't know what he word political means in the context it is being used.

I announced it and everything! 

 

 

Any ideas how we can adjust it to make it more discoverable would be greatly received though!

To be completely honest, I'm following the instructions in that post, but none of the filter stuff is there.  Does it only appear on the light theme by any chance?

NSFW Filter Enabled is white text like everything else on the page, it blends in. Probably after 100 years I wouldn't of noticed it there by myself.

 

Needs a different color. Maybe just the text in Red. But if Black/white or Blue/white are the color scheme, it needs to be neither of those.

That's the NSFW filter - which won't hide the off-topic threads. If you see the thread I linked to in my previous posts, there's an icon on each forum listing, underneath the post count for that forum, which enables you to completely customise which forums you see in the MiniSpy area.

You didn't come here to advance the understanding of this topic.

 

 

 

At least Gary7 has a purpose. He usually has the most effective point against mine even if I disagree, but it still gets respect.

 

You are just a troll. Up until now I thought you might actually have an altruistic goal. But you don't. You came here to attack me, with literally no other purpose.

I was in this thread conversing with others before you  so don't think you are special enough to warrant me coming to a thread just for you. 

 

Nice deflection after claiming I was making political comments and having nothing to back it up:laugh:

Ok, I'll get that sorted this weekend! In the mean time, you can switch to the regular theme, set your filters, and switch back I guess. I'll get it sorted though!

 

Edit: Toggle is now present on Darkside!

I do not need the filter anyway.. Thanks But I am sure others using the DS do. I can see the green eye now.:)

It is called not giving a crap about your point.

 

Since you have to have the last words, I will bow out now.

 

Have fun with whatever seemingly perfect point you have to make.

I wasn't talking to you in that post.  You already made the hypocrisy of your stance in this thread clear enough that there is nothing else to say. Thank you for the last word, yep I will take it knowing that I'm done making my point with you.

If you get quoted in a thread you have disabled viability for, it gives you a notification.

 

Seems logical to me that is I disable a part of the forum, people quoting me inside it shouldn't notify me at all.

It's a filter for the minispy, nothing more than that. The mini spy is something we've added to the forums ourselves, and is easy for us to customise in this manner. Disabling notifications for quotes and things like that would mean making changes to the core of the forum software - something we try to avoid as much as possible, as doing so makes upgrades between versions much more painful

The change is in the JS, which is shared between the two. You probably just need to ctrl+f5 (I've checked, it does appear on Darkside)

I'm going to clean this thread. Can we please stay to the topic at hand rather than taking jabs at one another?

 

I know that the darkside theme has been missing the ability to ignore sections, but DaveLegg is on it. While we appreciate the feedback, there's no need to take digs at one another at the same time.

I see it know but I wonder if you can do one more thing. When I click on a thread in the mini spy it takes me to the first page, can you change that so it goes to the last page. This is particularly annoying when one is trying to get to the Funndy Pictures thread...ETC. Thanks.
