New Update about the Black Hole....

This is just an FYI to the members who post in threads within the Black Hole. For those who don't know about this sub forum, the Black Hole contains threads that discuss topics that may be viewed as offensive or inappropriate to this forum. This includes topics about sex, topics with "adult themed" pictures, or any other thread that administrators may consider to be adult-oriented.

We have created the sub forum so that the normal member will not "stumble upon" Black Hole topics unless he or she chooses to enter the sub forum. Obviously, you should not browse any of the Black Hole threads while you are at work.

Anyway, I just did a modification to the site. Now, you must enter the Black Hole to see any new posts or view the topics. Black Hole threads do not appear in any type of search. If you do a search for keywords, do an author search, do a "view posts since last visit," or do a "view your posts" no Black Hole threads will appear.

Also, if you browse the Lounge, the sub-forum info at the top of the screen regarding the Black Hole will read "No Posts" even though there are posts inside.

This Announcement is to let users know that the Black Hole still exists, but you must now manually enter it. Users who relied upon the "view posts since last visit" option may be confused to see no activity inside the Black Hole. Also, if you create a thread that is deemed to be adult-oriented, an administrator may move your thread into the Black Hole, but that thread will not be deleted (unless it really deserves to be deleted versus moved).

This modification was done so that the thread titles within the Black Hole will remain invisible to any user until they choose to enter the Black Hole.

Please PM me if you notice anything strange as a result of this, the functionality of creating posts within the Black Hole should be unchanged.

i like the changes, it makes the forum more professional while still being fun for people who just want to chat about "things".

^^^ Yeah, and it should let people at work (I mean, people taking a break at work) browse the forums without fear that some co-worker is going to see weird thread titles or "NWS" all over the place... Browsing about cars seems innocuous

Good work, donut. I see the suggestion I made to Dan made it to you (if not, I guess great minds think alike.)

Yep JT I'd been thinking the same thing before you'd even mentioned it to me, but holey was the one that found the mod after I/you asked about it.
