I think a better solution here is to have a ''hide thread'' option, just like they do on ''HUKD pick'' threads. If you create a seperate section where do you draw the line? people will then say have a separate one for sports,religion etc... they take up more if not the same amount of space.


EDIT: Just to add, having a quick scroll through the front of misc there does seem to be an unnecessary amount of quiz/game related threads.

I would welcome a 'hide thread' feature if HUKD was able to create the option. I know what you are saying regarding other subjects, but my specific issue is as follows. These quiz threads invariably require a one word post, and as such are easily added to, leading to long-term occupation of the most recently updated threads as they are set up to be infinite. Other subjects tend to be different, as posts are more varied and involve more input from members. They are also more topical, so come and go, keeping Misc fresh for discussion. It would be the same if the 'Competition' tab sat within Misc, which is why I think there could be a similar case for a Quiz specific tab.

10 current examples listed below. As they are so easy to add a post to, a single member can update 6-8 threads in a couple of minutes, immediately taking over the front page. Other Misc threads are (mostly) based on topical discussion, so will come and go after a reasonable length of time . These quiz threads are infinite, and will continue to regularly dominate the front page as interested members tend to update most / all of their favourites at the same time. Not seeking to spoil the fun for people who enjoy these, but a dedicated 'Quiz' tab would seem a good option for all concerned if HUKD are able to create under 'Menu'.

Hide thread is definitely needed. Seeing the same crap every day in misc or deals in general becomes a bore.

My input to that thread (comment #4):

I was going to suggest additional categories ("Topics") for "Misc" threads (such as "Quiz", "Word Game", "Photo Thread", & so on) & an extension to the "Custom" view settings to remove certain "Topics" from view until you mentioned that you may wish to see some of these threads.

The problem with having the option to remove a thread from view is that you will then need a new facility to bring those threads back into view (if you hide one accidentally, or find a reason to see any one of the threads again). So, it isn't just a simple "check-box" you tick next to each thread as an additional Profile-based page is needed to "untick" ("uncheck") one/more threads.

This, obviously, increases the (development, & dare I say, testing) time to implement such a request.

Far from impossible; just not trivial.

It would just be like viewing your block list on facebook. Having the option to ''unblock'' or in this case ''unhide''. Not sure how hard that would be. The only solution to unhide a hidden ''hukd pick'' seems to be clearing cache/cookies so agree it isn't ideal.
