The actual search results on the old APUG started about 400 pixels down, and the new system is about 280px down from page top.
    The whole shebang is definitely an improvement.

    I always just click on the top right link to see the latest posts, so the few lines below the menu bar (Search, Latest and now exclusion list) are pretty useless to me. In the old system, I just checked my exclusion list once in a while. I doubt that I ever added back a forum that I had once 'silenced'.

    Personally, I'd like to be rid of all the envelopes and other icons. But then, I had hoped that Lynx would take over the browser market...

    It's lookin' good. Cheers, Richard

    Great feature. Even better instructions.

    fyi- There is a bug with the ignore thread tool, it removes threads from view but not from searches, we are working to fix this..

    Sean, I agree with Richard that the bar could be less obtrusive. Main problem is, there are now three brown/grey bars of the same color just below each other (the second menu bar, the search parameters bar, and the title bar of the search results all have the same color), which looks a bit confusing.

    Making the search bar another, possibly lighter color, to distinguish it from the second menu bar and the title bar of the search results, will not only make it less obtrusive, but actually also more clearly distinguish it as a separate entity / functionality. And in that sense ironically make it more visible.

    Another option is to move it below the search results.

    I also don't think the ignore forum option, although justly requested by many and missed, is something that needs to be available all the time. Once you set it a single time, you probably won't use it anymore.

    Is it possible to make any threads started by people on your user ignore list be auto thread ignored. Nice to also have any threads participated in by people on your ignore list auto ignored as soon as they post to the thread. That way I can cut them out of my life forever and don't have to suffer reading replies to posts from people on my ignore list.

    I've tried ignoring the "deleted" thread at least 3-4 times and it keeps showing up in the list of new posts.

    That is because it is trying to delete you! As long you do not sleep, you will be OK!

    Sean:

    I don't know whether this is connected, but now if you do a search that returns no results) (like a New Posts search, when there are no new posts) you just get a blank page - nothing that says there are no results.

    EDIT: this appears to happen only with the "New Posts" seach.

    Further EDIT: now it seems fine!

    Further, further EDIT: It's back!!!
