A new site feature has been recently launched that allows you to better tailor your news experience. Are you tired of reading rumors? Want less of a certain analyst in your life? Maybe you really really don't want to see comics from this one place in your feed? Now, you have some control.
While editing your user profile, you will notice a new option on the left menu bar called "Custom Filters."
Clicking on that will bring you to a form where you can customize your news experience while logged in. You can have the main page filter by categories, tags, games, and title content. You'll even have your own custom RSS feed.
Couple things to note:
* This feature is still relatively new. Most, if not all, bugs should be sorted out, but some could still creep up. I'm notified on any critical site errors and will try to fix them as soon as I get the time to do so.
* Your filters only apply to your special RSS feed and the main page of the site. They will not apply to forum topics, notifications, or viewing stories by category, tags, games, etc via other methods.
* You will always be able to view any story if you know the URL.
* False positives and negatives can happen. What you see or don't see is completely reliant on the story author properly naming stories, setting categories, tags, games, etc.
Thoughts? Comments? Complaints? Let me know here or shoot me a PM.
Finally, a quick PSA:
Did you know? - If you're tired of seeing comments from certain users, you can make them never show up again for you! Just click the little eye icon with a slash through it on a comment and that user won't show up anymore! The user will also not be able to reply to any of your comments or send you PMs. You cannot use this feature on moderators, story authors, or cortjezter (pro-tip: While I do have admin powers on the site, I am in neither of those groups... hint hint).
