 Can we remove BOTD and HOTD threads from "Active Topics" ?

Ive seen three threads where people complain about Rictus threads being at the top of Active topics all the time. It seems to bother some people.

I think it would be for the best if both of those forums just wouldnt come up in Active Topics. At first all the BOTD threads were just allowed in Team, and then they got their own forum to keep it contained. WellI figure that if a guy wants to see some skin he's browsing the BOTD forum without a notice that something new and interesting has been posted in that forum.

That might be a good idea.

Although....it will allow the people who have a problem with it to believe all is actually right with their very small-minded world....yaknow?

Then again, considering the General Discussion mentality of most of these folks, perhaps that does work after all.

I wouldn't mind being able to block them also.

But not HOTD

I dont know why, but complete deja vu with the post above me. The words, and even the damn time look like I read it several times in the last few days yet it was just posted!

As much as I enjoy spreading the Gospel of the Rictii, I support this idea.

I am also for this idea.

I have wondered into some threads in either BOTD or HOTD not noticing what forum it was.
If I want to look at those threads I can go the forum directly and not have an "oops" moment.

THIS! I browse primarily from the Active Topics tab. A lot of times, I don't even look at what forum it is posted in. I will see a non BOTD thread title, click on it, only to see a thong or naked ass while at work.

I'd rather have it that I physically have to go to BOTD to see any threads there to avoid the oops.. but it isn't my website. Just voicing my opinion.

How interesting that all these people think we're talking about BOTD only.

Maybe a good reason to make this so.

Edited for spelling and clarification.

Right, but its entire Communities as a whole. You would have to block everything in the "General Community" not specific forums in those communities.

99% of what I read is in general, so is BOTD and HOTD

Meh. I don't really know because nothing actually blocks for me. It just resets.

You don't see that on jobrelatedstuff.com, and I surf JRS while at work. I have to be very careful about what threads I open.

And spare me the talk about not surfing while at work. The boss allows surfing.

Same boat here, it would be nice that those areas don't show up.

Please yes, I'm sick of the Rictus threads. I don't want any of them to show up, but those are everywhere.

(ya ya I know my Team membership expired, I'll be back soon enough, and when I do I'll be very happy if I never have to see another BOTD/HOTD in Active Topics)

I don't pay attention to them, since I'm much more interested in the BOTD.


If HOTD posts keep overriding GD posts in the Active search, I guess the problem is lack of interest in GD topics.

Welcome to the world of jobrelatedstuff.com, which I mention earlier. As you can see, there is no section stating WHERE the threads are from.

I like having everything come up in active topics. BOTD, HOTD, reloading, ham radio.... everything. The threads picking on the whole Obama family for retarded petty reasons, the threads on Dancing with the Stars and Idol, I can do without, but you know what? I just ignore them like a big girl.

HTF threads don't pop up in Active Topics, and I would personally be on board for having the same with HOTD/BOTD threads. I browse through JRS. 'nuff said.
