    Is there some way of me excluding the massive volume of posts from Forum Spy for Mac Community forums.

    Or perhaps we could give the players their own sub-forum within the Community??

    Perhaps this would also work for NFL/NHL/MLB player draft games too?

    Anyone??

    Click on Preferences for Forum Spy and uncheck any forums you don't want to see.

    Ah, but I already have Community Discussion checked, because I want to see general topics being discussed.

    If there was a play-time forum within Mac Community, then I could un-check that one.

    Is there some way I can keep from seeing these massive amounts of iJohnHenry posts? :)

    Yes, I believe it's called Ignore, though I have yet to use it, even for you. :p

    Even if I could block threads starting with "[" that would be a good thing. :D

    iJohn, I think the problem may be that you haven't actually participated in one.

    I, too, used to feel a bit like you, up to around a year or so ago, and wonder what this stuff was all about and why so many posts flooded into my inbox. Then, nursing a wicked head cold, and thus, confined to the house early last summer, I actually followed one from beginning to end. By the time the next one started, I had become a participant.....and, by and large, I have participated in almost all (not quite all due to work related travels) of them since then. Believe me, they are great fun and strangely addictive....

    However, a dedicated sub-forum might not be a bad idea......but, you know, you are always welcome to join the marauders and murderers in this parallel universe of MRville....

    This is true, but then I always lost at Clue. :eek:

    And I say enjoy.

    Thank you. :)

    Now you went and spoiled it. :(

    I have no need of these pseudo-urges.

    :p

    I realize I am slightly late to this thread, but I think this seems like a really good ideas. We can stay out of peoples way, and still be part of this community. I was also thinking (oh no) that if we were in our own sub-forum, a friendly MR god could allow our Game Gods to be made moderators of just that one forum. Then, if/when a players post needed to be removed/edited, we don't need to interrupt the other normal Mods. Thoughts?

    All I heard was "I'm iJohnHenry and I'm in." We'll note that for the next game. :D

    I'd like to ignore these games, too. Maybe a sub forum of Community Games? I guess I'd still see them because I play in other games, but yeah, it'd be nice to turn them off at will. Sometimes they're just a bit overwhelming.

    Nothing against the games or players, like I said, I participate in some. Just be nice if they had a home that Forum Spy could ignore.

    I am late to this thread,But I don't think its a good idea because then we wouldn't get any new players.

    You could join a [ww] game is what he said, however, he just sounded slightly insane.
