lol what?

Why does this have to be at the top of the forum list taking up space?
I'd prefer to not be able to see that forum. Could it at least be placed at the bottom, under flame wars?

Because training up new members is much more important than flaming each other.

That's a matter of opinion.

People should have the option of asking to be removed from seeing this, as nothing in it applies to them.

It's a part of the standard forum list, and will most likely remain. The Flame Wars, Off Topics Forum, Map Foundry, etc, don't appeal or apply to everyone---but they, like this forum, will most likely not have an "opt out of viewing" feature. :)

Could a script be made that would hide the parts of the forums we don't want to see?

In regards to a user-created and user-installed script for the forum, you'd have to go see the folks at the Plugin's forum.

In regards to any forum-wide modification, there is some discussion going on in the Suggestions forum.

Really? 'Cause I do a lot of new things constantly. Maybe I just don't like you?

Or maybe I don't like a random new forum to help n00bs, which has nothing to do with me, being put at the top, over other forums that are actually important (to me).

Keep your pathetic flames in flame wars, reap.

That new forum is a work-in-progress. It is currently built for cooks and new members, but it will also serve as the place to get your questions answered and learn basic strategies for a variety of maps and settings (hence the work of the Strategy Ad-hoc). This forum will benefit whomever wishes to contribute to it or learn from it.

Ever thought that some of us don't like you Kotaro.
Either stop whining and deal with it or leave, those are the only feasible options I see.

I'm glad to see the society go public (and the Strategy and Q&A be taken more seriously), and hopefully more things that help the site from usergroup state become more mainstream.

Can you see the classrooms? The players asking for advice in specific games? There's more than meets the eye....
