Suggestion: News Only Category

Maybe this defeats the idea of this forum but I would like to see a news only category or channel or whatever. HGN, staff and maybe a few others would be allowed to post news but other members would not be able to post responses. Getting news is the only reason I pay for VIP access. It gets really tiresome to have to read through a bunch of threads to find the few tidbits of real news. Based on comments posted over the however many months I have been (or was) a VIP member I don’t think I am the only one that feels that way.



@OscarR This is possible without creating a new category… mods and admins can still post on closed threads…

We could experiment with this… but would have to figure out the right flow to do this…

Love this idea.

Or adding a feature where someone can enter a thread and jump right to HGN’s posts in the thread


You can already do this… just enter a thread and search HoozGotNext while checking “search this topic”… it’ll just cycle through those posts


Interesting. I did not know that



I want a thread where i can talk about my life… who do i talk to bout setting that up?


I want this thread to close automatically in 3 months


You can also tap on someone’s icon, and if they’ve posted more than once in the current thread it’ll bring up a button that’ll filter to just their comments in that thread. Example, I clicked on jazznut; that “2 posts in topic” button is the one you want.

That said, a news only feed would be fine, I can understand the desire for it.


I mean, we get the emailed news posts from HGN. The fun part is immediately running over here to see how people are misinterpreting, overreacting, etc. I guess if we’re talking about “actual news” from any source (kind of like thesabre’s news link), then someone would have to curate those feeds…

Now I know that WFS_Hoo was not replying directly to BDragon . . .

. . . but damn, that’s a pretty good TWILIGHT ZONE episode right there


So are you all thinking it would just be an HGN feed? Look at what I put together quickly… something like that?

That looks great. However, it looks like only a couple of people (on this thread) have expressed interest besides me so I don’t want to create more work for anyone. Sorry if I have wasted your time. I appreciate the efforts of ALL moderators and admins.

@OscarR Did you see the hacks in how to only see certain poster’s posts?

See how it hides everyone else’s posts?
