Proposal: Get political threads off the front page

Forums - Website Topics - Proposal: Get political threads off the front page

This is a gaming forum first and foremost.
If people are interested in those discussions they can always go to the subforum.
I, for one, am sick of consistently seeing Donald Trump or whatever on the front page almost every day.

I need to add, it's always the same people. Always the same bunch dragging down discussion to the dirt.

This.

 

It's a gaming forum primarily and that's what the site in general is for and about, not for Pol talks, not for clickbait Trump articles and the usual IS talk. I've been seeing more and more pol threads cropping up over time and they usually end up with some people banned in them.

You want pol threads?, go to the sub forum and keep it there.


Also yes, it is always the same people posting the same type of pol topics over and over and it's mostly used to drive some personal point home that serves no purpose.

Am I missing something? If you see a thread you're NOT interested in, just ignore it. It's not that difficult. Just comment on the ones you DO like.

You realize you're talking about censorship, right? Some people on this site DO care about these kinds of things. Let them comment on the threads, while you comment on whatever gaming related threads you like.

Easy peasy. Everyone's happy.

I can never tell if the "you" is supposed to be directed at me, or if it's supposed to be a general statement.



Ok.

I had no access to a desktop browser for a while and I couldn't browse VGC, because it's fucking PAIN on mobile devices.

What does that have to do with the topic at hand? Lack of mobile friendly version is an ANNOYANCE to all members, unlike political threads, which doesn't bother everyone, and not to mention, threads can be avoided entirely if you aren't a lazy person.

If you guys are serious about changing the front page then you might as well prioritize and start with the more important problems, like introducing the mobile friendly version, the one we were promised ages ago

Do any of you guys read my OP? I'm fine with political threads, but I know that others aren't.

Then removing hot topics is still the best way to remedy the situation.

I personally don't want them gone. It's the easiest and fastest way to get morons banned on here.

Actually the best way to fix the issue is to allow people the ability to add a filter to the hot topics.  Make the hot topics more personal by tying it to a person profile.  Yes it can be code intensive depending on how the site is already created but its something that the developers can throw in the hat when they do another major update.

They do seem odd on this site, but I've just kept ignoring them till now



Take everything off the front page except Sales and Latest Charts.
