Thanks, Max et al!

A nice feature at another forum is a boxed "Unanswered" thread list that appears alongside the regular forum list. That box makes it easy to zoom in on things that need to be researched or FAQ-linked.

It also has a boxed "My Discussions" list to easily transfer the eye to things one is already caught up in.

And.... :~) both help with member time management. Like Mudcat, each of these boxes shows newest items at the top.

Hard though it may be , I HAVE to agree with Kevin (Sorry Mate ! Tongue in cheek there) but splitting the site into fragments will just make it harder to find what MAY be of interest ! Keep the Music together and leave the B S to be read or ignored on what the Title says .

Personally I'm about as interested generally in folk activities in Maine or Queensland as I am in activities in Yorkshire. I'm not likely to get along in either case (leaving aside say Whitby Folk Week), but if the thread is about the ins and outs of how things work, and about how they could work better etc, that's all relevant to me. If it's just about who's on next week, it's not really.

So long as the thread heading indicates that kind of stuff, that's all I ask of it, and I think that can be done easily enough. I see no value in filtering out the threads I am probably not going to open, because I can't see any realistic way of doing that without filtering out threads I would be interested in opening. Still, if people wish to do that, so long as the thread titles contain the necessary information, we already have the facility to do it.

Personally I would prefer a colour (or color) coded system that showed functions like Announcements and date sensitive information, or US and ROW (because it is a US site first and formost).
The BS and Music separation works but I am always interested in a wide variety of things and colour coding allows us to scan and decide, whereas a system that hides sections would not be inclusive and Folk is epitomised by inclusivity. We are a broad church. The problem with sections is not as bad as a filter but colour is immediate. Background and font colour allows for combinatorial representation (and affords many shades (of opinion?). Maybe a <DIV> layer that can be shown when hovering over an "explanation" area/link.

It can be done even with links CSS and HTML tags allow for it in all browsers. We could still call them blickies because it would not affect thread look and feel, only the list of threads.

I know Max's philosophy is to not be too clever because there are many luddites out there with legacy equipment (And the dreaded IE7 that does thing differently because Bill Gates can). And a few webmeisters follow the same logic. We want to reach everyone we can. Inclusivity again!

Another 2¢ worth:

I don't want to banish announcements to a ghetto. I like McGrath of Harlow's suggestion of a tag to allow them to be filtered, and I like Barbara's ANN (Announce) prefix very much. I think it sounds more pleasant and useful than EPH (Ephemera), TEMP (Temporary), P&E (People and Events), CUR (Current), or any other label I could think up.

Thanks to all those who've helped this thicko - it's obvious if you think about it, isn't it?

An 'ANN:' (Announce) pre-fix would work for notification of events, special club nights, tour listings or whatever, wouldn't it? I agree with the use of an abbreviation indicating the country in which it's to take place.

BB - go to the top of a page. Just below where it says "Mudcat Cafe" there is a line of clickies starting with "Lyrics & Knowledge" and finishing with "Help". If you click the one that says "Membership" it takes you to a page, which if you are logged in as a member contains a number of boxes with your details. Below all of these are (currently) three extra option choices.
One says "BS Filter" - if the YES button is selected, when you look at the forum, it hides all the contents of the BS section. It sounds as if you have this one selected.
Another button says "Mix Music & Non-music". If this is YES all threads are listed together regardless of whether they are "BS" or not. If you choose NO the BS appears as a separate section below the "serious" section.
Of course. if you have already ticked the do not show BS, then the second button doesn't have any BS to mix in with the serious stuff.
NOTE - the BS filters only work if you are a member and logged in. If you are a guest, the BS is by default there as a separate section.
Quack!
GtD.
