Filter out random posts
« on: August 31, 2017, 08:52:52 pm »

Are you guys able to filter the posts out, which originate in Random Chat, so they do not show up in the 'Recent Posts' chain.

I understand Random chat has no rules, but walls of text and vaguely connected conversations kind of mess with the 'Recent Posts' page. Real posts get lost in the shit heap of posts that originate in random chat. Also 99% of random posts are basically shit.

When you just want to find out what everyone else has posted in relevant areas of the forum, your unable to because recent posts is full of random shit.

Edit - or even box the posts in so that you can quickly scan through them or whatever.

Basically, instead of flag to watch, flag to ignore.

Something like that, a button on the left which just hides it will work.

We could use this Forum Mod http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1193
Although it's compatible with SMF 2.0.4 so it might not work. Also if we had a bigger member count this would decrease forum performance

I've activated an SMF option that allows you to ignore boards:

Quote
This page lets you ignore particular boards. When a board is ignored, the new post indicator will not show up on the board index. New posts will not show up using the "unread post" search link (when searching it will not look in those boards) however, ignored boards will still appear on the board index and upon entering will show which topics have new posts. When using the "unread replies" link, new posts in an ignored board will still be shown.

You should find it in your Profile, under Modify Profile -> Ignore Boards Options. Please see if that does what you want.
