This issue is resolved, you can view the new posts page (excluding member forums) or use a greasemonkey script to filter posts in the member forums in the spy.
Also consider using this greasemonkey script to enhance the usability of the new posts page a bit.
---

If people keep bringing threads up, that you just don't care about, there should be a button to ignore those threads. Forever. Across all of your computers.

There should also be a button to ignore specific people.

There already is an ignore list for people. Threads on the other hand... not so much.
Owns, no particular order:
Ricercar SPOS (Variable Force Mod number 3), 122-key IBM terminal board (future project to learn a Teensy), 1993 IBM Model M, Dell AT101W, 3x Cherry G80-8200LPBUS (2 in pieces, 1 modded to Ghetto Reds), Cherry G80-1190HRMIT(Variable Force Mod), Wang 724 Terminal Keyboard (Pink Alps), Cherry G84-4100, Cherry G81-LUMUS, a pile of random old ALPS Macintosh boards in poor condition.
Wants:
Odd keyswitch boards for cheap (NEC sliders, space invaders, other weird stuff), Cherry Blues for cheap

If you got so many things you want to ignore on this forum. I would think twice about coming here if I were you.
\\\\ DSI Mac Modular Keyboard (Brown) w/ Leo  Blank Keycaps //
\\\\ Leopold 87keys Keyboard (Brown) w/ Black CherryCorp + SP DoubleShots //
\\\\ Filco Majestouch 2 NINJA (Black) w/ White CherryCorp + SP DoublsShots //

No need to feel offended, it's just about convenience. And I don't believe ignoring certain people is the right solution. Being able to shut that "Banned?" discussion up, is.

It can be achieved with Greasemonkey, but then you'd end up with different ignore-lists on every computer you own. Saving these lists server-side would be better.

Doesn't matter, it's just not as relevant as the main forums. Come to think of it, it probably would suffice to exclude member subforums from the new-posts page or rather make the latter customizable.

It would also be nice to know what iMav thinks of these suggestions and if they'll ever be implemented in one way or another.

any easy link like that for the spy?
or maybe we can make the mostly sane link permanent on the menu like a third option for spy or something. (too lazy to search all the time)

Just took a quick look at vaispy.php and it already has hard-coded exclude functionality, you'd just have to read which forums to exclude from the url. Or add forum-id CSS classes.

Meanwhile here's a fix that works for old spy in Firefox on Windows 7

Thanks! In Firefox 3.6.xx (on XP, but I don't think that matters), 'document.head.appendChild(s);' didn't work, but replacing it with 'document.documentElement.getElementsByTagName( "HEAD" )[0].appendChild(s);' did the trick.

I hope geekhack stops getting infected. Turning javascript off reduces the indifference level somewhat.

Geekhack Spy Shades does a great job enhancing the old spy - easily customisable to ignore any subforums and/or users you like - I'm surprised more people haven't downloaded it. Meta-indifference I guess.

The Filtered New Posts links still work regardless of javascript.

There's no reason to be, this was resolved long ago.
