Filtering on "View new posts" via user defined filters

Postby  kw1k000000 » Tue Jun 06, 2017 1:19 pm

The "View new posts" option at top is great for browsing this forum. That is first thing I do after logging in and I presume most people do that. However the new posts list gets flooded by recorded games posts and sometimes you have to go 2nd-3rd page to see actual new posts.

Is there a way to filter out posts certain forums or particular type of posts from appearing in "View new posts" lists so that actual posts can be read and discussed. Nothing wrong with people posting recorded games but I presume its not something which most people are interested in, considering there is almost no discussion happening in most of them.

In my view, Live spectating and streams have really killed the appeal of recorded games which is quite clear by lack of participation in those posts.

kinda related, but would be great if you could sort View new posts by amount of replies since you were gone, so you know what the most active topics were

Of course, a server side solution would be best. Until then, I have quickly written a script which hides recorded games from being shown on the View new posts page. Feel free to use or improve it: AoCZone Cleaner

INSTALL

    1.1 Firefox: Install the Greasemonkey add-on
    1.2 Chromium/Chrome: Install the Tampermonkey extension

    Install one of the three AoC Cleaner versions:
    (installing more than one is possible. Make sure to enable only one in *monkey)

    2.1 AoCZone Cleaner
    -> hides topics from most of the Recorded Games sections (look into the code to see which forums are hidden)
    -> doesn't hide topics from the tournament sections since there are useful topics sometimes

    2.2 AoCZone Cleaner Strict
    -> additionally hides all Recorded Games sections of the board
    -> well, actually, it hides a topic if the corresponding list element contains the string "Recorded Games"

    2.3 AoCZone Cleaner Strict (+ Scheduling)
    -> additionally hides all Scheduling topics
    -> careful: a topic is hidden if it contains the string "Scheduling"

    Upon clicking one of the three links, an install dialog should open.

If you want to disable the script temporarily, just hit the monkey button on the top right and refresh the website.

I think it could be good to have this option available. Although on the other hand it does slightly take the credit away from the recorded game posters... In this scenario there will be even less comments on RG posts.

best would be to be able to tick those post from the view new posts, because i often like to go through the scores between the most interesting matchups/players but ignore about half of the other posted recs
