Generally I browse the forums by just searching the new posts. When I log in recently, I've been getting 5-6 pages of new posts. From what I can tell, this is due to increased traffic in the Off Topic Forum. And quite simply, I don't care for needless posts which quote someone and then add a simple . It achieves nothing, adds nothing to the conversation, and most of all, annoys the crap out of me cause it adds to my 5 odd pages of mixed spam and good/informative posts. So getting back to my point, is it possible with either the basic phpbb2 forum, or perhaps an addon, to hide entire forums like what can be done in vbulletin? Cause well, going through threads to try and find quality posts is becoming more and more difficult.
