I just can't seem to figure it out. Specifically I want to stop seeing Politics, Religion, and Family and Gender. I thought there was a way to do this. But I can't find it. Am I wrong?
may be if hub editor notices this forum, they'll think of adding a tool for doing that.
Thanks Relache, I like to keep an eye on the other topics though. Every so often someone puts an adult topic in the Fashion or Home category and that ends up on my hubs. And I have to ask HP to move it.
If I don't have to look at politics, religion and sex (I'm careful never to write hubs in those categories) I could care less.
I think you can modify your home page. But you have to add a widget for everything you want to see very time consuming. I wish HP would do this. I'm so tired of the need to discuss adult topics in the forums. HP got rid of adult hubs, I wish they would segregate them, so that we aren't bombarded with them. I don't usually spend this much time in the forums, but with the photo capsule issue I've been wading around all of the nonsense for a few days.
I think it would be helpful to be able to limit the forum topics you can see as well.
I think both of you need to re-read my previous post, as I just described how you can do that.
I will say I don't like how the custom home page truncates post titles. That's frustrating.
It is a good thing for you as a writer to know a bit of each and everything... that way when writing about something you love you could use what you have no interest in as a way of comparison... or even just relating to that issue that rattles you, no?
This on my wish list too! Same, same as you. Would love that option.
I get your post Relache, making a home page with everything but those three topics seems to be a large task. Or perhaps I'm not getting it.
Sadly, you are getting it, and it isn't something that's got an easy fix.
Personally, I too would prefer to be able to block just a few topics on the forum end of things and have access to the rest. However this was what admin produced when people requested the ability to block specific forum topics, and that seems to be the extent of their interest in dealing with it.

New people are always welcome on this site, but they need to understand that this is not a site like Facebook. HP is a community of writers who have come here to hone their skills and perhaps earn a few dollars.If...

Whenever I open the forums, I see countless threads by the same people, many of them unanswered or with only a couple of comments. I would love to see a limit on how many threads the same person can open...

I believe this has been addressed before but can we please revisit it. I have very little interest in the religion and political forum threads yet they seem to occupy 75%+ of the latest activity. It's an inconvenience...

Perhaps to strike a balance between what one portion of HP users want and the rest of us...maybe we could start up a "Newcomer Thread - Q&A" that has equal staying power to some of our popular word...

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent...
