I'd love if there was a way we could customize our forum views to not see topical categories that we are not interested in reading. That way people could focus on reading that which they find relevant and eliminate those subjects they find extraneous.
Would be good to have the ability to block hubbers whose posts we are not interested in reading either
I am liking this idea. Although I think I would end up doing a "Jerrico Usher" (new term) and speaking to myself in vast posts.........
It's just called "sock puppeting", Mark and since you only have the one account here, it's unlikely you would start to act that way.
I think he meant that everyone would block him, and therefore nobody would read what he had to say.
He's probably got a good point
Well then I guess it would just be Mark and I talking in threads, as I don't seem to have problems with what he says.
But really, I find that blocking individuals makes for some repetitive and fragmented threads, as users say things that people they can no longer see have already said.
I just want to block subjective topics that I find really irrelevant to my HubPages experience so that the forums are less cluttered and messy to navigate. I frequently miss announcements from admin the day they are posted due to so much forum noise.
I get frustrated in the forums. I'd really like to be a more active participant both to build my hubscore and to gain knowledge. I find some great information in the forums to help me learn, but I also find that I frequently have to wade through the puddles created by pissing contests between hubbers to find the gems. There are cases where I'd like to ask questions, but I don't want to get dragged into the fray.
I don't necessarily believe that there is a solution for this, aside from staying out of the forums, which I won't do.
Just wanted to vent.
We'll put this into the feature wishlist, but I can't promise when we'll get to it.
yes please to that Relache.
In my opinion, blocking users means ugly post confusion, as people ask idiot questions already sorted out in posts they can no longer see because they have blocked someone.
But I would LOVE to be able to eliminate all the religion, philosophy and what's your favourite politician type forums from my viewing lists.

We now can limit the feed, through the feed filter, to one thing--Hubs, etc. But there is no way, from what I can tell, to just exclude one thing from the feed--specifically, forum threads, which was what I was trying...

Okay this is great! I downloaded it this morning, and it's really working wonderfully. We all know Edweirdo, a very clever and useful hubber who created the HubDefender tool for us all which detects hub-theft and...

I have noticed that an increasing number of people seem to have joined this site merely to spam religion on the forum. This would be okay if it was not for the fact that this is a forum for writers, not theists.I am all...

I've come to the conclusion that in order to get people to even look at your hubs, you must post in these forums. It may help get a few more fans, but if it doesn't, what have you lost. I've come here to hubber's...
