Contest Forum or Photography Forum?

Hello All,
This suggestion may annoy some, but here goes;
Next time there's a giveaway contest, allow some type of '1 click' bypass for anyone who doesn't want 19 out of 25 'New Posts' entries to be contest submissions.
A way to opt out of scrolling past 80% contest entries, while browsing the Forum for anything else photographic, Pentax-related or new. Like myself and I'm sure, many others do, whether there's a contest going on or not.
I'm not against contests in general, or even asking for an additional click for those who wish to SEE the entries listed;
Just an additional click for those who don't.
The K-3 giveaway is great and very popular so far. When I want to go there, I do, partly because I'm interested and also because B+H supports this site and I support them for their excellent service and contributions here.
And I'll vote, too. As fairly as I can, when I can.
All the rest of the time, I'd prefer a non-contest 'New Posts' option.
JMO,
Ron

Here's a new posts link that excludes the contest posts:
https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/search.php?do=getnew&exclude=140,141,142,143,144,145,146,174

You can also add the entire contest forum to your ignore list in the user cp.

Thanks!

Thanks for the link, Adam. I'm grateful for the contest and the interest it provides, but this gives me an option.
I appreciate your quick response!
