I can see now that the "Last 100 posts" page was going to become pretty useless pretty quick unless I excluded the new forum's posts from it, so I changed the code to allow a forum's exclusion from the post list and changed the link on the index page to automatically exclude "One Question..." - you can still get the last 100 posts for EVERYTHING by either removing "/exclude=25" from the hyperlink, or just using the "Remove Exclusion" link after clicking onto the Last 100 posts page.

If anybody still uses this page, do you prefer it with the exclusion or without - that is, which link would you rather prefer be available from the index page?

I like it the way you have it (that is, with the link from the homepage excluding the new forum). It's easy enough to just enter the new forum from the main page if you want to see if there's anything new in it.

For an old-fashioned fart like me, I still use the "last 100 posts" page, and thank you for excluding the new forum. The other forums are of more interest to me, I don't see the appeal of the one question forum - yet, but others clearly do.

I'll probably read the stuff in the new forum, but only when I'm just killing time.

Yeah, I use the Last 100 posts page all the time, and find that it is FAR more useful with the One Question forum excluded.

I prefer the exclusion, but stupidly clicked the remove exclusion link.

Ok, I see it's back now...must resist urge to click everything...

Can you do the same for the "Threads updated in the last 24 hours" link? Because that's the one I always use.

I don't see it as big a problem on that page (yet) - I made the change on lastposts because One Question... took 70-80% of the entries there. Currently it only accounts for about a third of the rows displayed in lastthreads (9 of 32).
