Make Party Alliance Forum private
« : July 24, 2013, 11:19:24 PM »
I have no interest in the Party Alliance and I'm not a member of any of the parties involved so why have I had the Party Alliance Forum inflicted on me?

Please restrict it to the nonentities in members of the parties involved

Oh hey look, I insulted an admin despite the fact that he blatantly abuses his powers all the time, like putting my name back to normal! Oh gee willikers, I wish I'd thought this through!

Yours sincerely,

There were calls to make it transparent, considering it's nature. I wanted to see if it was possible to make the main board simply viewable to general members with no posting rights. Complete success.

Anyway, the vote is running now, if none of the three options are selected as a majority I'll run a new poll to see which option comes out on top. At any rate, I'll set it to hide it from unread posts, like we do with BBH, which should please everyone I hope?

Hidden from unread before now. If it goes total private I'll remove that option, we'll try this out for now. The private sub boards are not hidden though, so people should be able to get to those threads pretty easily, it also convinces people to post them in the proper categories

From whom? The people in the parties? Well they can see it anyway.

The poll takes no input from the people with no interest in the boy's clubs political parties. If we are likely to have this inflicted on us then at least we ought to get a say.


Why not treat it like all the political forums and hide it?

Why do you say it's "inflicted" on people? If you've no interest in the political parties use the minimise function on the forum page.

I asked that they be made public as a matter of good practice.

Maybe allowing non-members to sign up and request access or something to see the forum group might be a better idea if it's bothering ppl.

So you're really going as far to say that seeing a subforum you have no personal interest in as an individual user of the forum and are perfectly capable of clicking a single button to not see it is something that's inflicted on you?

I'd suggest it was moved under Party Forums (to Butjam) and then you could simply minimise it to avoid any lasting damage to your eyes or soul or whatever.

Basically what everyone else said - being able to see it shouldn't be a damn issue, this is just Sexagenarian being his normal self. Loads of people have a category or forum they might not want to see but they just put up with it.
