I think this site should be renamed ‘GAMESNET’ - I have literally just hidden 15 games threads.

And they all come out at night?
It’s actually putting me off coming here.

There does seem to be a lot on here tonight Kandinsky! I aren't really interested, I just skip past them. They do seem to be popular though! I didn't know you could hide threads, thanks for the tip!

Callistemon Fri 16-Oct-20 21:06:15

How did you do that?

Doodledog Fri 16-Oct-20 21:06:22

How do you hide them, please?

HAZBEEN Fri 16-Oct-20 21:09:20

Go to the mobile site, click on a games thread, at the top is a red arrow, click. then click hide discussion. When you go back to desktop they are gone!

I wish they wouldn’t come up on the Active Threads at all.
Anyone who’s interested in them (obviously some people are) could just go straight to the Games forum.

Click on the actual thread and where you see the little circle ( top right ) click on that & you’re given a range of options - one of which is to hide the thread, only thing is you have to hide each thread individually.

So many of them I agree, I would enjoy some of the games but find it tedious going through pages of responses to make sure I am not duplicating an answer.

Callistemon Fri 16-Oct-20 21:33:20

Amazing!

Mostly I can find the mobile site, but not just now when I need it!

Callistemon scroll down to bottom of the page.

Doodledog Fri 16-Oct-20 22:18:44

Thank you, HAZBEEN and Kandinsky smile

merlotgran Fri 16-Oct-20 22:20:45

Yep! I hid twelve last night.

I cannot see a little circle

Well, I didn’t know it was possible to hide threads. Thank you for the tips. Do they need to be selected and hidden daily or are they gone forever?

BlueBelle Fri 16-Oct-20 22:38:20

Floradora if you’re on the desktop site you have to change to mobile to do it If you use the mobile site you have to change to desktop site
Yes, I know makes complete sense (I don’t think)

Grannynannywammydone every day 😴

Maggiemaybe Fri 16-Oct-20 22:41:54

Really, Bluebelle? So that’s 5 minutes I won’t get back. sad

Maggiemaybe Fri 16-Oct-20 22:44:39

Really, with all due respect to the members who like the Games threads, wouldn’t it be so much better if those of us who don’t could just hide the whole forum? It’d be no big deal then to have to do it every day.

Grannynannywanny Fri 16-Oct-20 22:45:24

Thanks BlueBelle. I’m thinking with all the faffing about involved I might just continue scrolling by

BlueBelle Fri 16-Oct-20 22:45:58

Yes there ll be even more tomorrow maggie We have asked for ever for there to be a different contained area for the games but nooooooo how dare we try to improve the site

Esspee Fri 16-Oct-20 22:50:46

Drives me nuts too.

Charleygirl5 Fri 16-Oct-20 22:52:45

Bluebelle that is such a good idea separating the games from the rest. I may have played two games since joining many moons ago but they are taking over now in my opinion.

ditto.
anyone at GNHQ, please ?

BlueBelle Sat 17-Oct-20 06:01:30

welbeck we ve asked many times over the years and the answer is always a very polite no

Marmight Sat 17-Oct-20 06:49:00

Really? Complaining about Games? Unbelievable! Why do I feel this undercurrent of superiority from this thread? I’ve just counted 202 threads on ‘Active’ to choose from. Why not, like I do, just scroll past the subjects you don’t like and ignore them? Why should they be separated just because a minority don’t agree with them or are annoyed by them? Could say the same about Politics or Knitting - or anything else for that matter.
