If you had an account on forum.suprbay.org with at least one post, you do not need to re-register. Your account is still active and your Suprbay username and password will work.

SuprBay: Make RiffTrax a custom usergroup like the void
#1
Rationale:

The void is a forum you can only see if you opt into it, and you can opt out if you don't like what you see.

It's like that because it is not really relevant to the forum main scope: TPB and piracy related stuff

OH BUT RIFFTRAX IS PIRACY AND THEY UPLOAD ON TPB

Yea sure, all of us uploaders get ONE SINGLE THREAD in the promote your warez forum

BUT THEY ARE NOT OFFENSIVE LIKE YOU VOID RETARDS

Have you ever listened to a rifftrack?

-------------------------------------

I would personally very much like to be able to OPT OUT from seeing the daily rifftrax chatter in my view today's posts results.

The void is a "hidden" usergroup not because there is a lack of relationship to piracy, but because it allows people to choose whether or not they want to opt in to seeing the large amount of garbage that goes on there.  It is not a separate community in its own right that drives people to register an account.

Doing the same to RiffTrax would require having everyone that wants to participate join the group, and that isn't terribly fair to that community.  MyBB isn't exactly user friendly in that regard.  We'd have to field the endless questions that would come from it, and there would undoubtedly be frustrated members that would just walk away.

So, the short answer is no - we won't make them jump through hoops to save you a bit of annoyance.


There is something of a solution for you though - MyBB accepts two interesting fields to the Today's Posts search:

&days=# to extend the search beyond the last 24 hours
&fids=#,# takes a comma separated list of sub forum IDs you want results from.
