Make P&R an opt-in Group Membership?
 
Over @ r3d, the P&R is big like it is over here. But if you're not inclined to be a part of it (many aren't just as many are), you can simply not select to join it. Just go to User CP, group memberships, and there's a check box for P&R forum. If checked, you can see it, if not, you can't. It's really simple and easy.

I'd like to see that implemented here, not because of dislike for our P&R forum, but because r3d demonstrates that it can be a simply executed Choice, and I like that.

Your thoughts?

I feel like people who don't want to be involved in it just don't go in there. If you notice, there really are only a handful of people who regularly post in the P&R section.

I agree with ViN. If you don't wanna take part, stay away (as, I think, most do :p)

Like I said though, over @ r3d it's a nice and seamless opt in/opt out, using probably the same vbulletin we use here. Plus it gives uses the option to actually not have to see the P&R stuff if they don't want to.

I'm just throwin' it out there, as it seems so dang easy, simple and right how they're doing this over @ r3d, as their P&R section just like here is loosely moderated, inflammatory and controversial.

And it's not just a handful of posters here posting in our P&R forum, sometimes P&R posts end up making up a majority of the new posts list. :p

Anyway, I've made my point about this, I don't think this idea is a bad one, and I wanted to let people know that within vbulletin there is a choice to configure things like this.

I'd like to see this for the Testing forum at times. I hate that when you're viewing the top level forum that the Testing posts usually show up as the new thread instead of something more legitimate from the Open Forum.

I would say yes it would be nice to be able to not see Obama crying threads in the new posts search for the next few years. :D

Because I know what the say. They all say "John, please forgive my conduct. I suxx0rz, j00 r0xx0rz."

While I appreciate these repeated apologies, they're clogging up my inbox. 5 per day is getting out of hand, you spammer. :bleh:



:p

I'd like to see DD be more partisan. Is there a vbulletin setting for that?
