Hey guys!

So I have a an idea that I personally believe is considered to be a "killer idea!"

What if we had the option to hide threads we don't want to see? This would be a great idea because I know many people are sick of seeing these game threads and I believe it would be a convenient idea.

The way this works is that if you don't want to see a thread, you simply click on the thread and click "hide thread." And then there could be another link for a "hidden thread" section. Where it says "My," there could be a drop down box that says "hidden threads" and "followed threads."

What do you all think?

Interesting idea. It's actually the reversed of the favorites, or "non-favorites". It's a lot of work to implement this feature into the site. So there need to be some support from other members even to reach the stage when I'll add it to the to-do list

I think it's a good idea. Maybe even a feature to hide total categories. Like the games. Obviously not for forum mods though, which sucks for me.

That's also a good idea!

Yeah, as a mod I like to keep track of all the threads, but non-mods might appreciate the feature. Personally I don't think it's a huge deal just to click on page 2 or 3 when game threads are bumped, but I guess some might?

For as long as I've been here, it's never been a problem just skipping over threads that I didn't want to read (except for that short while that the song comments threads showed up in the forum.) I don't see the necessity in being able to hide a thread, just skip it if you don't want to read it. However, the idea of being able to hide the games category (or another category you're not interested in) I like. Sort of like blocking game requests on Facebook, that could be convenient for those who never use that category.

This idea is a lot of work. The work vs reward balance has to be good. I don't see people go wild on this idea so far. So I'll put it on hold for now, but it gets a place on the idea list. A plan?

I say we at least give it a go and if no one liked it, we can throw it away!

LSI is also a music site vs a site where we want to hide threads of the Forum social media part of the site.....if Ray has better improvements to the music side of the site that would be impacted, or slowed down while he worked on this particular idea, I say I'm in favor of tipping the balance to do interesting new things to keep the site number one in Lyrics and other features take a back seat to achieving that goal.

Ok?

Basically, if someone wants to see one specific category of a thread but they don't want to see others, they can hide them from the active topics. So, if someone is only here for the music section of the forum and they don't wanna see any other category, hiding the topic would be useful.

They could look at the music related categories instead of going to the Active Threads section.

Can we still make this a thing, Ray? I'm getting pretty tired of seeing the same useless topics being bumped.

Some of us wish to only see the threads we post in, not these other threads because again, they're useless and irrelevant.
