    I don't think we are dominated by selling. It's easy, no it isn't, to not read the FS ads.

    Not all KS' are just about money. One just came in completed, where they wanted $1 or more to help fund a gunshot sound effects library. Their goal was to gather enough for ammo and gun rental. They did it cheaply and well. Now they are giving away the sound effects, to anyone!

    Those darn idealistic college students...

    Please see the revised first posting in this thread. We've added a new forum as discussed above.

    The problem is that is how spammers work; seemingly innocent initiation of discussion about things for which they have financial interest.

    It is an internet based panhandling site.

    Yes, I'm also waiting for a better solution. For now, try "Search" "Single Content Type" go to the scrolling list at the bottom and select "Subscribed forums" and select "Since Your Last Last Visit" "and Newer"

    You can choose your "Subscribed Forums" in "Forum" View by clicking on the green dot for each forum you like (these are saved between visits, that is one good thing).

    The problem is that even though you can click "Save Search Preferences" at the bottom, each time you come back to the search screen you are in "Search Multiple Content" (whatever the heck that is) and when you click to "Search Single Content" your "Subscribed Forums" preference has been ignored.

    The other problem is that the menu option under "Quick Links" that says "Subscribed Threads" is NOT the same as "Subscribed Forums"

    For example whenever I post helpful hints like "...be a man and get an enlarger..." in the DIGITAL section those darn threads keep showing up as "Subscribed Thread" under the quicklink menu whereas the DIGITAL forums are not on my "Subscribed Forum" list.

    Bob,

    Use "Unified View". By default it filters out classifieds, lounge, and a couple other things.

    Cheers,
    Keith
