New Concierge Function, please Read and provide feedback

Hey Everyone, we're going to be testing a new Concierge/Recommended For You function today. It'll be a little box that appears in the lower left corner. This will suggest other threads based on what you're reading at the time, it's also easily closed with a click in case you're not a fan. Please have a look and let us know what you think, here.

Thanks!

Not a fan is my official opinion... hahaha
Is there a way to turn it off permanently?
Despite me clicking the X to go away it is relentless in coming back every few mins.
also mine is located in the bottom right (not left).. so not sure if mines different or???

Professional Pyro..
No really; I get paid to blow stuff up...

Very intrusive, should be a way to turn it off. If something interested me I would have clicked on it, I don't need anyone or anything to tell me what interests me.

Ok, so I meant right when I posted that, mild goof moment on my part. I'll see if there's a permanent disable function to be added to it. Also it shouldn't be much bigger than the sidebar is it going beyond that?

very annoying, and recommended threads are bad recommendations. Right now I'm looking at the recommended thread "Front Seat Back Removal? (4th Gen)". I don't care about this thread at all, and don't own or frequent 4th gen anything. So, it's annoying and wrong. Useless, IMO. Very much looking forward to the OPT OUT button, same as I always OPT OUT of the "Enhanced Mobile View".

No problem. This is just IMO, of course.

+1 on the opt out button. My opinions pretty much match everyone else. The recommend thread seems to have very little relevance 95% of the time anyway (latest, napa oil filter thread when I'm browsing a highlander subforum, I haven't opened an oil thread in a long time )...

I've only seen a couple of them pop up. But I can see how that could be annoying .
I would prefer that we didn't have those.

Pretty small pop up on the desktop, but boy does it take up a lot of real estate on the phone's browser (using non-mobile view since I dislike that too for performing moderating functions). Now I have to close that too before I can moderate something when it pops up.

Just to try it out I've been going to the first half-dozen suggestions and it's pretty ridiculous. Just throws random threads I have no reason or desire to visit. I want to view threads in sections I care about. In that case, I'll go to that section and see all the threads. I don't care about motor mounts in a camry, trans rebuild in a corolla, or grease type in a land cruiser.

Can you get me a screenshot of how it looks on your phone?

It pulls based on thread tags and key words and is supposed to be related to threads you're already in.
