Seems like a pointless board. Political dastardly is fun, but you don't use a forum to do it!

How do I hide it?

A political party is not a party. There are no crisps, jelly or ice cream.

But that hides all the super impotent TUP stuff.

Just don't see the point in having a cross party we're joing together 'cos we're worried about Goku & Co board being made public.
Another needless set of unread posts.

It was a request from members for a bit of transparency to what could be seen as some sort of cabal and dastardly politicking. There is a vote going on now that will have closed by this time tomorrow. If they want it shut it will close and the problem is solved, if not then I'll try and figure something out to please as many as I can.

We have a mod installed that hides things from unread, with any luck there is one that allows users to customise it. This would be handy not just for this, but also the BBH and Minecraft that people don't wanna sew

About half of the board is a needless set of unread posts to me*, but I don't see any need to hide it or have it rid of.

Leave it and mark as read if you don't want to read it. It's at least under the Party tab it's where people like looking at similar/relevant things (ie if you like party stuff you'll probably like cross-party stuff).

Ugh if people keep moaning just make an open group that anyone can join, which hides it. Hardly rocket science and takes like 2 minutes.

I don't know why that should have to be done, though. It would be like whining about having to see the sports sub-forum if you're not interested in sports.

I totally agree, but it will shut them up.

I tend to agree that we shouldn't all have to see it.  Didn't care enough to make a thread about it though.

Really don't understand the need to have it visible or what that's supposed to achieve but whatever.

I think it's p pointless if there's no moderated reply function, people seem to have changed their minds and looks like it's gonna' be hidden anyway

Having it public doesn't change that perception.  People would naturally assume you're just not running a cabal where everyone can see it.

Fair point, was one of the reasons I changed my mind personally.
