Thread: Request to Filter "What's New" view

  1. #1

    Default Request to Filter "What's New" view

    I'd love the option to select folders within the PC to hide / filter from the What's New view. I like reading about the game, but 90% of what you see in this view is Politics. This means I have to go hunting through each game-related folder for new dates to read about the game on a forum that is primarily designed to support a game community.

    Much appreciated if there's any way this could be implemented!

    Why not just use New Posts?

    >ask clerk about citizen
    The clerk says, "Hrrrm, Mogonis, you do seem to be eligible for full citizenship. Just WRITE your name in the book if you wish to make it official."

    >write book
    You sign your name into the citizenship registration book, fully agreeing to the duties and privileges full citizenship provides you.

    New Posts does not show me replies to threads that were created less recently. It only shows newly created posts. Also, if you open up the New Posts section, it too is riddled with non-stop Politics topics.

    The What's New view is a more "live feed" view.

    I agree. But get ready to be trolled, and red repped. Easier just to ignore the 40 or so people who post most often in the politics folder.

    New Posts should show all posts since your last visit.

    This is a much-desired feature that Whirlin has been trying to implement. However, it requires installation of a thingamajig by the Administrator, and the Administrator has thus far been unwilling to do it.

    I also really enjoy being able to scan the actual post from the What's New view, instead of just reading the title of the thread that was recently updated.

    That's good then. Hopefully some more people showing support / interest can strike a chord with the Admin. The PC is a great resource for the game, and I also feel newer users will benefit from being able to filter out the noise in this view.

    Shoot Kranar a PM and ask that he install a few plugins when he gets the chance. When/if he does the PC will be far more customizable to one's liking.

    Why does everyone want to make their PC experience so boring?

    If you cut out politics all you would be left with is like 100 different merchant threads to every one thread that talks about GS.

    Yeah, filtering politics would be great.
