Ignoring threads

Postby Baliset » 18 Sep 2009 04:58

I'd like to ask if this forum supports the option to ignore some threads or subcategories, so that they don't appear in "View new posts".

For example I am not interested in world politics and I see daily many such posts in the subforum intended for these discussions. :oops:

Please don't get me wrong. I don't intend to insult the forum topics or those who are interested in politics. It's just that not everybody shares the same interests and would require some individual convenience :D

Maybe if you were actually an active member here you'd know this has been discussed before. :roll:

So? Just means the onus is on YOU to catch up.

You could also try the bloody search function. :roll:

Either way, Dumb Novels is back up, so you can run back and preeq-wank yourself silly over there again.

Sandchigger lack patience much recently?
I don't think the author should make the reader do that much work - Kevin J. Anderson
We think we've updated 'Dune' for a modern readership without dumbing it down.- Brian Herbert
There’s an unwritten compact between you and the reader. If someone enters a bookstore and sets down hard earned money(energy) for your book, you owe that person some entertainment and as much more as you can give. - Frank Herbert

I end up reading every thread regardless of whether or not the topic interests me because I'm compulsive about the orange "new post" icons.

I go thorough phases. Sometimes I can't get enough of this place and read everything new. Sometimes I could care less, but I can't stop visiting so I'll look down the list of new posts and say " ah, fuck this; off to T(A)U." :lol:

I've complained about this before, but I have to read all the new posts,
because you Off-Topic ADHD motherfuckers might derail some boring
Dune Discussion with some of the good entertainment ... and also,
the cross-thread postings ...

but seriously, what precautions are we taking against the Charwood Zombie ?

Everything but "Politics" for me. I don't even look inside there any longer.

And, rarely, I'll just skip a thread that has gotten insanely boring. It really is fairly rare, though, because most of the conversation around here is pretty good.

The Return of Harwood would be glorious. As a skilled dramatist, he must know that he should return and add a few chapters to this epic tale. He can't let the story end on the cliffhanger bequeefing of the blog. We must have The Revenge of Frank Walden.

I know the first three (maybe four, by now) books, and am in the process of learning about Heretics and Chapterhouse, and I try to read everything. And you never know when an Onasander is going to pop up.

I searched Twitter a bit yesterday for accounts having to do with Norman, Oklahoma. ;)

I know he's out there, somewhere.

I can feel him. :D

I just HAVE to read everything because you never know where some great entertainment might pop up.

Huh? What are those? I'm not familiar with that concept.

I mean, I read the words and understand what they mean, but I have no personal experiential referents. Ugly ... girlfriend? Get OUT of here! :hand:
