DOWN WITH NEWS FEEDS!
« on: January 25, 2008, 11:41:37 am »
Enough of the News Feeds already.  Okay who is going to read all that crap.  Is this some sort of sick experiment? I cant have a Mac feed because its to much trouble but I have to sort through all this crap.

Show unread posts since last visit is now a joke because of them. If you go to the news feed page and click mark all read, it all marks the main page read, all individual topics still have to be opened and each page marked read before they disappear from the "Show unread posts since last visit."

Its a PITA.  Will anyone read these? I think its really slowing down the forum too.

Well. I don't like it either!
But, could it at least make less posts?
I mean, there's already like 98478923759 from it.
I always use the Show Unread Posts. Then there's like 18 freaking pages I have to sort through because I don't feel like reading all this.
Yeah but Pinkie types faster than the hispanic people talk on the spanish channel and that's almost impossible. - TeXaS

If we can find a way to keep them out of Show Unread Posts, I'd really like to keep them.  Many are very interesting.  But I agree with everyone else.  The amount of them that you have to filter through to try and read unread posts from actual forum members is a bigger pain in the ass than it's worth.

Not keeping them, getting them.  Had no idea it would be this bad.
