Before the boards were reworked, the "new posts" button would show the last 50 posts but only from threads that the user had access to. When I click on it now, a handful of threads show up as "private forum."

This honestly isn't a huge issue, but I think it'd be better if these private forums aren't displayed at all on the new posts page. The average user doesn't need to know there are forums they can't access (this is the only page where it's possible to find out there are hidden forums). And it's sometimes telling that a private issue is being discussed if there are only global mods posting in one of these threads.

This is only from my perspective, but I think it'd help the staff of Vizzed if hidden things stay hidden.

I was going to make a suggestion thread about this as well, so thanks for doing it. It's more just an ease of use kind of thing for me. There's no reason to have them cluttering up the feed for the majority of users that can't use them. I wonder if the admins were even aware that it was like this.

We are aware of this. At least it doesn't show the names of the private threads anymore

I imagine it is a lot more work for the threads to display properly depending on power level and the benefits likely aren't that big.

I don't know if David plans on fixing this or not but I don't see it as being a major issue. The average user that I know of knows about private forums. Every message board has them so trying to hide the fact seems sort of silly to me.

It can be a real pain for users who are regular members or even trusted since there would be so many more threads that they can't see, taking up the spots of threads listed. There was a time for me, when half the posts were restricted and I couldn't even get to the next page, so I could only see about 30 posts.

geeogree : Oh, okay. I don't think it's really an issue of accessibility as others are suggesting since you can just go to the next page. If it's not a simple fix to implement then I understand it being low on the priority list. 

Did it really used to show the thread names before? Now that I can imagine being a major issue. xD

Yeah, it used to show the names when David changed over the newposts code. It stayed that way until more new pages came along and now you only see restricted thread there. It would be nice if it would filter automatically by power level but I imagine that adds extra database queries that would make the page slower to load and not really worth it.

geeogree :

Of note, it still shows thread names on the index page.

For example, a weekish ago, I saw under "Latest Threads" a restricted thread called "hongree", which I can only assume was a report thread.
