User customized "New Posts" listings


I was thinking that it might be helpful if users could set postive or negative keywords for the new posts searches. Say for example, I know nothing about NFS, so I would be NFS as an excluded word and if that showed up in a thread title which had a new post I wouldn't see it. And if I set mplayer as a positive key word any threads with mplayer in the title with new posts would be put first on the list. All other posts that didn't have keywords that were in the user's filters would be put behind the postive keyword threads.
I think this could help more questions get answered because people would see more of the threads on topics they know more about.

Sounds like a good idea, but who's going to write that program?

Well hopefully it wouldn't require much programming. Maybe just a place where the user enters the terms which will be put into a search and that search applied to the new posts.

The next version of the forums will have "posts with 0 replies" as a search modifier, so you could indeed search for threads with no replies and the word mplayer.
