Would it be possible to give users the option to Hide topics in the Forums?
This would give a bit of control on what is seen on the main “feed”, when opening the forums - since popular topics get bumped back to the top very often at each new reply.
This would really help create a pleasant and personable atmosphere.
What I have in mind is a feature similar to the Reddit “Hide” button - possibly by placing it in the “three dots” (“show more”) menu, that is at the bottom of topics, perhaps between the “Flag” and “Bookmark” buttons (for reference it currently looks like this):
I suppose that would require also to save that list somewhere in the user’s profile. And/or give a list of Hidden posts somewhere in the profile, so as to give the option to make topics visible again. I realise this may come very close to last in the global priorities of things, but still.
