Hiding specific forums

Any way to prevent specific forums from showing up in New Posts searches? Say, for instance, I don't want to see any posts from the Air Traffic Control forum in the results, how do I do that? I see by the link URL that it already excludes 3 forums, probably the newsbot ones. What's the forum ID for the ATC forum?

My JC shortcut reads the same as the 'New Post' button, like this:

http: //forums.jetcareers.com/search.php?do=getnew&exclude=86,87,88 (remove the space after http: )

(which I know you already realize, but others may not), and yes, 86, 87, and 88 are the Newsbots.

The ATC forum ID is 105.

Oh, and for a number of people who shall rename unnamed, the Lav ID is 33.

If you want to get really fancy, change the "exclude" in the URL to "include" and it will search only those forums:

http://forums.jetcareers.com/search.php?do=getnew&include=86,87,88

You can edit that URL to include only forum numbers you're interested in and then bookmark it. That essentially creates a custom "New Posts" link of only forums you specify.

I dunno how many forums you can manually include, but I think I'll go play with it now and see what I get.

Edit: Works with at least ten; my guess is that there's no limit. Neato.
