    Thanks for the detailed answer to my poorly formed question! Having looked at the numbers in more detail, a better question would be whether the Non-Chess thread total will overtake all the other threads combined excluding Upcoming and Current Tournaments. At present I believe it's roughly a tie, so Non-Chess winning sometime this year should be a good bet.

(They can see it if they log out.) I can't do it on a thread by thread basis though - only the sections and subsections showing on the main page. As with username changes I wouldn't want posters continually asking me to change their preferences back and forth, so posters could make one request of this kind every six months. ...
    Would subscribing only to the threads you are interested in also work?

    I don't think it is roughly a tie or close to it. There are 12,682 threads of which the tournaments section has 2,422. Non-Chess as such has 2,087 but there are other non-chess sections that have another 623. The total includes 632 threads that normal posters can't see (a lot of these are non-chess too) and another 1,382 chess threads that are archived.

    It might if you wanted to use that as a substitute for reading via New Posts. I think he's getting tired of having his New Posts lists flooded with non-chess stuff.

    Interesting data, but I should have been clearer. I should have said that the total number of posts on the Non-Chess threads will overtake the total number of posts on all the other threads combined excluding the threads in Upcoming and Current Tournaments. I believe those numbers are currently almost tied.

    Total posts = 429,296
    Upcoming and Current Tournaments = 83,661
    leaving 345,635
    Non-Chess = 143,789
    other sections = 201,846
    however that includes 12,287 that are offline for non-mods and 18,445 in the other non-chess related sections (Coffee Lounge, 1337 Lounge, News, Help and Feedback)

    You can also go into a forum, Eg non-chess, on top right under "forum tools" you can click "mark forum read".

    He can't see these posts anymore, I've blocked him from Non-Chess at his request.

    Thanks again Kevin. So there is a chance that I'll live to see total posts in Non-Chess overtaking all the other posts combined excluding those in Upcoming and Current Tournaments. Although that won't be as memorable as Non-Chess being 50% of the total posts, which I won't live to see - if it ever happens.

    I think there's an Alanis Morissette song about that

    His reference in the Shoutbox to "komrad", which only appears in the 2019 Federal Election thread, would suggest that he has been reading the Non-Chess threads

    Shout in question being:
    [23-04, 20:58] jammo: Some posts use the word “komrad”. Is that how dumb people spell “comrade” these days?

    Hey, I may be dumb, but at least I'm not grammar-troll-who-can't-remember-what-threads-he's-pretending-he's-not-reading-dumb dumb.

    Antisense has not posted for ten years, maybe similar to Jono's wife - I suppose someone has to wash the dishes
    Zionism is racism as defined by the UN, Israel by every dirty means available steals land and water, kill Palestinian freedom fighters and civilians, and operates an apartheid system to drive more Palestinians off their land

    The dishwasher washes the dishes. It doesn't post here because it's worried its intellect would outshine yours.
