[You mean, if you open up WME via a link containing an "&mapUpdateRequest=" property? Yeah, I could include an option to ignore the filtering options for any UR referenced in the link URL. And even if that wasn't what you meant, it sounds like far too good an idea to ignore
Thank you for rephrasing it so succinctly, that is in fact what I was asking for

I'd love to allow the creation of more complex filtering rules (e.g. hide a UR if conditions A and either B or C are met, but only if conditions D and E are not also being met), but I can't think of a way that would allow such a rule to be defined easily within the limitations of the UI elements available to us.
Understood.. Would it make sense to add another checkbox like "Override" which would over-ride any other filter? Like basically the "override" set filters would be applied after all other filters.... So if I hide UR's with comments less than 4 days old, but I have the "If comment by me" is set to No/Override, it would un-hide because I've asked it to NOT hide and to override.
The problem is, what if you pick multiple override's... That would be a logical failure, perhaps would only honor the first... It might work to let every "over-ride" work, but it'd work in a linear fashion.. If one over-ride gets over-ridden, it just is what it is? That make any sense?
But as you said.... Confusing/complicated. But glad you like my idea of not hiding URs referenced in the URL
