    I don't have the option to exclude the Lobby. That's the one I want to exclude the most. :(

    Still not an option to exclude the Lobby. I've closed my browser and everything. Would it help if I logged out, and logged back in?

    While we're on the subject, I'd like to exclude the "Welcome" forum and "The Perfect Bass", which at this point are taking up half of my "new posts" searches. Thanks!

    Okay, it looks like The Perfect Bass Forum has been added to the list for exclusion, but the Lobby and Welcome Forums remain.

    I also noticed that "Sponsored Forums" appears twice--once with the list of forums, and again at the bottom near "Paul's Shack."


    I would really, really, really like to exclude the Lobby since I can't exclude specific annoying member(s).

    Funny, but those are all showing up on my list ( :confused: ) and have now all been excluded. :hyper:

    Maybe Paul likes you better.

    Could it be a moderator vs regular guy thing?

    I think it's a matter of you viewing an old cached page. All the forums mentioned in this thread are set to allow exclusion... Try refreshing your Edit Options page... Does that work?

    Nope. Not that. Other ideas?

    Ditto. I have firefox set to delete caches, cookies, etc when I close, anyway. I refreshed on the Options screen, and Lobby and Welcome forums are still there.

    Wait, you mean not there. Or not available to remove from "new posts" button. Right?

    Does the forum know I'm a supporting member or not when that page appears? It's not there could be somehow connected to that.

    You are correct. I had to hurry out to a gig and mistyped.
