I've made a change that is not really what Ray mentions (though I like his suggestion), but does clean up what a user sees.

Now you can toggle a setting in Configuration (for registered users) to Hide any groups not subscribed. To subscribe to a group, just enter the group from the Grouplist page, then it will show up in the corresponding section. Groups you don't read won't be visible.

Just click 'unsubscribe' to remove a group from your subscription list.

This is live now on www.novabbs.com (until someone says I broke everything, then I'll revert to backup, lol)
