Hey, Cameraderie Bot, you need to check your circuits a little bit better there, my friend, games aren't of interest. :p


On a serious note, just items related to photography should be getting picked up automatically but some items are getting a hit on the word "camera" so they get included. Those errant posts are being manually removed for now. I'll add it to my To Do list to see what can be done.

@theoldsmithy What kind of filtering do you have in mind? Originally I was trying to filter the 'giveaway' type posts to be just photography or camera related but the initial feedback was that the misc. stuff might be interesting as well.

I thought if I clicked "Ignore Thread" at the top of the thread, I would no longer see it in the latest thread side navigation bar. But that is not the case.
Unfortunately two different items of functionality from two different vendors. :( The 'ignore' functionality should prevent the posts from showing up in "New Posts" and related but I don't think it affects the sidebar listings but it is a good point. I'll add it to the list to check out further.

I think they are easy enough to ignore.
is there a way for me to not see these altogether?
:cautious:

I did mean filtering to photography/camera related apps...but it’s not a big deal for me if the consensus is to keep it more general.

I'm thinking we should go back to trying to filter the results; I've got an idea in my head at the moment to try & make the bot' a bit more intelligent in what it grabs, I'll work on it on the test site this week.

They were easy to ignore when they were in one thread and it updated once a day. But suddenly there were three different threads bumping up every couple of hours. Since I navigate the site using the sidebar, I was missing threads. Honestly, it's no biggie for me either way. I just thought maybe there was a way for me to ignore them that i was missing.
