Why is all the garbage in the off topic forum now appearing when I search for new posts? It never used to and I didn’t even know it existed.

I was thinking of renewing my membership but the hate I see posted in there has convinced me not to. That crap does not belong anywhere on a car form imho....

I thought there was an option to see it or not in your profile (or other settings) or something like that.

Don, please expound on what you are seeing. I searched the site for "EFI" and this is what I got back;


But maybe you weren't talking about this kind of search. Then I clicked on "New Posts" and all I got back were new posts on this forum. I don't see what you are seeing. I am using Google Chrome. Maybe it is not the forum. Maybe it is your internet browser.

I am referring to the “New Posts” feature. I select 24 hours and I have started seeing Off Topic threads appear within the past couple of days. Never used to. I can’t find a way to stop it. Reflects badly on this forum imho....

I clicked on "New Posts 24 Hours" and got this;
I don't see what your getting. Are you sure the "Forum" is responsible?

Yes I am since someone else is reporting it above. It may have something to do with my paid membership expiring....

Same here. Never saw anything in “new posts” from OffTopic before a couple of days ago, and that’s on multiple different browsers and computers.

Someone flipped a master switch somewhere on the forum control panel.

Really don’t want to read that crap here, was disappointed to see it was lurking here all along. I stopped reading silver bullet because of that sort of stuff.

Your right. Too much negativity and shoving opinions. I have the ability to watch CNN or FOX if I need to get that information.

Well, there was that notice about some changes to the forum about 4 or 5 days ago. Probably reset some things and now that filters through. I am seeing this morning threads on Trump, Hillary and one other that I have never seen. I am going to follow Brett's lead and make sure I am unsubscribed from that group. Frankly, not even sure why it exists to begin with. You want to rant politics, go on a political forum.

As a follow up, that info in settings is just to join the group, you can't block the group from showing up. So I surmise this is something the administrators need to address rather than controlled by the UI. Either was, the recent discussion panel to the right of my screen has a total of 10 topics with 2 being off topic political ranting. Not my cup of tea.

It has always showed up on my New Post search.

You can read but can not post unless you join the group.

I thought/think there is a setting to allow you to block it.

I'll see what I can find out.

Brett, Look at the 4th post down from the top on your snap shot.
Al,
Yes I'm understanding now what he is talking about. I actually was thinking that those posts are of the type that the moderators would delete because it is not appropriate for this site. Initially, I thought he was talking about pop-up advertising that was invading the site.

Off Topic is not Moderated by us. It's enter at your own risk.

I agree I don't know why we even have it.

Friday night (about the same time all HELL started breaking loose around the Country) it started showing up for me and I use the classic version here TC. Was a little surprised at what (and who) all takes place in that forum.....


EDIT; BTW, someone must govern it as there was some bashing going on Friday night and the entire thread was GONE the next day (I couldn't resist checking). lol
