Is there some way to remove the Newsgroups from my view of the "View New Posts" screen?

I know some people want them, but personally I don't.

Is there any way (other than switching from Modaco Plus to Modaco Adfree) to get rid of these posts?

i did ask for a pointer to a Pocket PC forum in the past and no-one replied, and i know someone else recently asked the same...

It's kinda relevant to have in this arena but i would prefer to have somewhere else to view the majority of the queries/posts that are appearing here.

it just feels a bit crowded in here all of a sudden...

We can always just go to the Smartphone or PPC forums, but then we miss out on the news and stuff.

The RSS feed is good, because you can choose which forums to watch (and choose several) but the info in the feed is about as basic as it's possible to get.

I want that level of "personalisation", but on the website so I can actually read the threads I want to read.

As we all know, Paul is on holiday so let's just see how we feel in a week or so when he gets back.
I'm still making my mind up over whether its a good addition to the site or whether it just clutters the place up. I've replied to a few posts in the newsgroups, as have other MoDaCo members, but I'd never visited them before and, were they to go, I doubt I'd bother to find them again.
Two things to consider :
1. Its a great way to introduce people to MoDaCo. We can reply with 'as posted on MoDaCo' :)
2. Its a way of accessing a broader knowledge base of Windows Mobile that should benefit our members.

Didn't know that

2. Its a way of accessing a broader knowledge base of Windows Mobile that should benefit our members.

IMO most of the posts in the newsgroups are junk, or "newbie" issues, or development questions on PPC
I think we have the first 2 covered by ourselves :D

some of the questions are within the scope of useful.. If the threads were the same construct as the standard Modaco ones then it would be one less bugbear...

As for getting Modaco out there, are the topics started here visible to the native area of the Newsgroups?

if not then i reckon the deal is unevenly weighted toward the new setup... Not that i'm being elitist...err, ok, yerr i am!!

I don't agree with the first part, but I am only one voice and I'm quite happy to be over-ruled by Paul and/or the community

I've got a strong opinion on it, but I don't mean to sound like I'm dictating what everyone else should see...

I find the newsgroups a bit annoying (I see them in the new threads and I'm just a bog-standard (read too cheap to pay for plus) user.

I was walking past a building and I saw a man standing high up on a ledge. “Jump! Jump!” I started yelling. What happened next would haunt me for the rest of my days: the man came down from the building and beat the living daylights out of me.

I have to admit the newsgroups are annoying me too (another cheapie like Mupwangle!) :)

I used to get between 4 and 5 pages of new posts a day when I logged on - 9 pages if I haven't logged on for a week or so. Now I get at least 9 pages per day. It's getting me down to have to sift through all those posts every day.

Sorry, I apprecite they're a good, positive move for MoDaCo but please put my name down as a strong "NAY" on the subject.

Hey, Paul, could there be a problem with your blogs RSS feed?? I only ask, as I haven't seen anything new for ages, but after your prompt to go check, I did, and it seems there's been nothing coming through to Bloglines for a while. Annoying though, but have a good hol. Ho hum.

Not sure if this falls into the same category, but how do you stop getting multiple e-mail notifications of new posts in a thread you are subscribed to?

I remember some time ago that there was an option in the 'My Modaco' settings so you only got one e-mail, but can't see it now?
