    Clarification From Admins

    It appears that Boiler Room forums/threads now appear in New Posts.
    Am I seeing this correctly?

    I'm not an admin but I'm pretty sure I saw a post from BeerHunter that said the modification was such that the Boiler Room topics would show up in new posts *if* you have joined that group. So people who don't want to see that stuff (and haven't joined the group) won't, and those who have will.

    Correct. The Admins listened to the request but implementation took too long for some.

    As someone who does this sort of thing for a living I appreciate how long it can take. Especially when dealing with software written by someone else, making a modification like this without breaking a half-dozen other things, or accidentally creating a bunch of security holes in the process, is no simple task.

    Back in the day I used to make lots of modifications to Ikonboard (another popular forum software). It's tricky business because it's not like there is documentation for the source code. You dig in and you figure it out and you make your changes and see what you broke in the process.

    Excellent; would be nice if admins could post a notice advising of the change.
