I'm happy to stop back in and see that this has garnered some attention after all.
I feel that this is a good idea and something that ATS should consider. It's nice when you can subscribe to a thread, then when you aren't
interested in it anymore, you can X it from your list in your ATS account, but I'm wanting to take this one step further.
Yes, I wrote this in regards to the threads about a certain topic that Springer just created a thread about. Although I'm no longer interested in
viewing the discussions about this case, I don't even want to see it crossing the board when I'm searching Recent Topics. It doesn't even matter
that I'm able to avoid clicking on the thread. I really don't even want to be reminded that this case is becoming a huge topic for discussion and
distraction. Basicly, I'd like to subscribe to the old adage "Out of sight, out of mind." It is stressing me out that racism is rearing its ugly
head in the 21st century and I simply don't want to have these threads cluttering up my Recent Topics board. Being able to make such threads
invisible would greatly increase my viewing pleasure. If I want updates on racism in America, I'll turn on the TV or visit my usual MSM news
The fact that this case has caused me to address this issue is not to say that I haven't felt this way about other threads in the past. Maybe I'm
tired of seeing a thread titled "I'm an alien and I can prove it".,or what if I'm interested in the spiritual aspect of 2012 and desire updates
about the secret government (NWO), but I have no interest or belief that the government is building FEMA camps for everyone. As soon as I see these
types of threads on the board, I can click a button and make them invisible, yet I can still see other threads in the 2012 and New World Order forums.
So, ATS Admin and Mods, is it ever going to be possible to make a thread invisible on the Recent Topics board?
Thanks in advance for considering this action.
Also, thanks to those who are supporting this idea.
