kenralph Hi Ken. I think the answer might have been given by danwillen up above. It seems that the ability to hide the games forum has been deactivated for now, but is still available to those who had the hide option chosen when the change took place. You probably don't want to try it, but dan said that he has just tried turning 'hide' off, and when he went to turn it on again, the hide option had been greyed out, and he was no longer able to hide the games forum. Obviously I can't try this out, but this answer makes some sense.
