MNHQ - is there any chance of a premanent hide button? It would be good to be able to get rid of irritating threads for good, rather than spend all day hiding and unhiding them!

I am a bit confused. Why are you hiding then unhiding?

Hogwash Wed 23-Apr-14 15:26:07

... or even a *permanent one

I'm a bit confused too. I thought that once you'd hidden a thread, then it was hidden?

I guess the only way it wouldn't be hidden is if you're lurking without being logged in, then that thread wouldn't be hidden (just the same way you couldn't see TIO or TIW) IYSWIM?

I am bit confused. I hide loads and they have never reappeared AFAIK.

You can go into customise and get them back at the bottom of the page.

Sparkling you don't unhide if you are sensible - but I'm not.

I spend a lot of time hiding threads, then they recur grrr!

You don't need a permanet hide button.

You need willpower.

They still come up in active threads, though, which is waaayyy too much for my willpower.

Sparklingbrook Thu 24-Apr-14 08:25:38

Ooh right Hogwash so you want to not be able to unhide them. Once I have hidden them I forget all about them. grin

Arf at dundundun

if hidden they shouldn't appear for you in active convos.

Well in the absence of a willpower button, it would be good to have a permanent delete button - not that all hidden threads are permanently deleted for you, but maybe a 'type in your password if you think you are too weak-willed to let this thread remain hidden' button.

Why on earth are you unhiding threads you've hidden? Why??!!

Hogwash Sat 26-Apr-14 21:03:55

I'm not as sensible as you Lady

I feel really confused now...

So if you hide a thread, why would you go back and unhide it? And then think that you want it hidden again?

Am I missing something?

i get the OP. I hide the MN threads pinned at the top. But as soon as I refresh they reappear. Very annoying!!

NachoAddict Sat 26-Apr-14 21:48:38

Is it threads that have enraged you?

I only use the hide for threads I'm nit interested in to get them off my active threads.

How about a customisable option on the big list of customisable options saying that you have the option to unhide hidden threads. You then turn said option off?

Or, willpower grin

Hogwash Sun 27-Apr-14 13:26:35

What is this willpower of which people speak, and where to I buy some?

fidelineish Sun 27-Apr-14 14:43:11

Hi Hogwash

Afraid we can't help you with the old willpower.

But we can probably help you with your hide/unhide thread problems - if we could just work out what you're asking for! confused

Is it that your hidden threads are still appearing in Active Convos?

Do let us know, and we'll do our best to help.
