January 18, 2011Is there a purpose to them? I have certain forums filtered out of my list. With the icons in there, the forums I have filtered show up. (i.e. Politics)
January 18, 2011Those are the sponsors maybe?
January 18, 2011Looks like another lovely addition to a dieing site.
January 18, 2011SuperCrutyPS,
Let me make sure tat I understand you correctly. You have filtered out Politics, but it is now showing up?
We are trying to rid our community of ads once and for all. The forum sponsors can help us reach this goal. They are currently a work in progress.
If forums are showing up without you wanting them to, then this is a bug that needs to be fixed.
Thanks for bringing it up.
January 18, 2011Peter, I have the same problem. Forums I have filtered out still show up on the active topics page. Was not like that yesterday.
January 18, 2011Peter, That is correct. When I click on the "Active Forums", like normal, I get the list. But in it is "Politics" with the UltraStreet icon next to it. I revisited my `filtered` list and Politics is still NOT checked.
I understand the goal you described. I like your idea.
Just letting you know - I didn`t know if it was a bug or something else.
January 18, 2011may I also add that the sponsors icon next to the forum name as it was this morning was distracting and annoying the sponsered by banner in the forum page wasnt to bad
January 19, 2011IS something happening to slow the site down so much? Meaning, I am used to a 5-10 second wait for pages to load but all day has been 5 minute wait. I have finally had to reinstall long forgotten addons to firefox to block the damn ads. And they STILL load. If I am in a Ford forum, I do NOT want to see Heep Liberties and Dodge`s latest screwup idea of a full size truck with a dana 35 front axle plastered all over the place. If the wrong ads are going to mess up the Ford experience, at least let it be from a company the government didn`t bolster, say Toyota?
January 20, 2011K - I see the sponsor icons got moved, but the filtered forums are still showing.
Just passing it on.
January 20, 2011I am also getting forums that I have filtered out. The site is also extremely slow to load.
January 20, 2011Peter, Don`t know what ya did, but the filters are working again. I`m not seeing the ones I have filtered.
Thanks a bunch!
January 20, 2011All, read the notice in the yellow area at the top of every page. The sites may experience a slow down or outage until the fix is complete.
