i think forum games are ok. Maybe the humor section could be excludeded from the new posts list though, as its not really relevant.

Its useful being able to see all the new posts though. At least it is for me.
Maybe there could be a forum games section?

The only way to do this is updating to EzPortal 0.6.6 which allows admins to do so. However, by doing so, you would break the latest downloads on the front page, as well as replace the links in the Welcome user box with the avatar (linking to the buggy New posts from SMF rather than the custom one we use). Another alternative would be an admin taking the code from 6.6 and adding a custom PHP block with that code.

Also yeah Qwerty.55 if games are allowed entirely, that might be problematic because people will open Word Association, Count to 4000, ban the user above you, etc, which get quite spammish fast. Maybe limit it to certain elaborate games like the few currently active ones that aren't duplicates?

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Ah, I thought it was simply activating a setting. I thought i remembered new posts in the spam section not showing up before, but maybe that was just with the post notification in omnom.

Nah, the feature was only added in version 0.6.2 and Omni uses an unnoficial modified version of 0.4.1.

And yeah it was Omnom, but Omnom used to not show humor posts either. Else for spam it might have been due to how it was closed in July 2012.
