    Sometimes posts get flooded with noobies asking questions which I find annoying, because you cannot find the interesting posts that you want to read.

    If there was an option to hide messages permanently (with an option to unhide it ofcourse) you can just hide posts and whenever you want to come back to that post you can read the interesting messages people commented.

    an example of a post which i find very interesting: https://gbatemp.net/threads/haxxstation-ds-download-station-exploit.473648/

    and there are lots of people contributing to it for example FIX94 made a tool to send roms to your ds but it is being drowned by people asking all sorts of questions. and i find that annoying..

    but its probably just me

    i hope not

    Filter them out in your brain. I mean, I skim through most posts when looking for something. Also, searching posts is a thing.

    The effort to go through and hide every post is way more than just skimming through as you would have to skim through and then tick 100 tick boxes to hide posts you dislike and those you do like, if there is serial offenders of people who spam up threads with silly questions just ignoring them might be a start for you as you will often notice the same people asking silly questions all over the place

    I think it would be more effort to hide the posts than to ignore them - those threads usually get less than ten replies so they are gone off the first page after a few days. It's a bit like getting rid of junk mail out of you inbox by individually moving each one to a folder. No sooner have you got rid of some but there's some more.
