OK, I'm not trying to be a p.i.t.a., OK?

I avoid posting in the political forums (not that there's anything wrong with posting there--just not my thing).

Anyway, some of the discussions there get pretty heated (I read them now and again).....

so, would it make sense to make it a sub-forum in the Sports Bar, instead?

Why? So we can REALLY cuss at each other, Lou? Stop being such a sh*t-disturber. I'm tired of you constantly ripping people apart and causing trouble. :eek: :D ;)

:lol: :lol: :lol:

It's a "Lou is being a lazy sod--again" thing really. I get a JC has a new post indication, and it's a political thread...

Again, I'm not saying there's anything wrong with posting there--it's just not my thing.

Some of the titles are Sports Bar material, too--IMHO :)

Keeping it in JC probably keeps it more civil than it would be in the Sports bar. Not to mention you have to suscribe to the Sports Bar, which some people don't want to do.

The non-subscriber part is exactly my point.....you don't have to see titles like "Democrats/Republicans have child sex slaves" stuff.

But you might be right. :)

Why not just make it it's own forum, that you have to suscribe to, to see?

Exactly--that's why I suggested we put it in the Sports Bar :)

Yeah, but why put it as part of the Sports Bar, when it can be its own Forum? Maybe some people don't want to see the Political Forum, but want to see the Sports Bar, or vice versa. :)

It's all good, whatever it is.

I think everyone who participates in Political Soapbox should be given a dollar.

Just sayin.

I think everyone who ocassionally posts in there (like twice a year) should get two dollars.

If you don't post in there or read it on a regular basis then why does it matter?

Well, if the Republicans would just lay off the child sex slaves, the problem wouldn't exist. ;)

Because on the start page it shows a new post, so I go to look, only to find that it's in the Political Forum.*




*unless there's a way of telling that from the start page :o

unless there's a way of telling that from the start page :oYou can see what the title of the most recent post is... if it looks like one about political sex slaves, you know not to worry about it ;).

Any chance we could get more topics like this? It would definitely boost involvement in the Political Soapbox. :evil:

I still don't get why if you don't post there it matters? Ignore the topics then.

I still don't get why if you don't post there it matters? Ignore the topics then.If you've read all the posts in the forum, it clears the "New Post" indicator from the forum home page. His issue is that if a new post is made within the PS forum, the "New Post" indicator for the JC forum on the forum home page is active, which makes it seem as if there is a new post in JC. But when you go into JC to read the alleged "new post", you find that there isn't a new post within JC itself, but within the PS.

It's a convenience thing.

He's saying that if there are no new posts in JC itself, he doesn't want to see the "New Post" indicator active for JC.

Make sense?

Yes it makes sense, and I know what he was saying. :) It's still not necessary.

What would be a very nice enhancement is for the ability for a user to "hide" a certain forum from their view.

Kind of a "I don't want to be bothered with this ................" choice to be made :)
