I don't know how many surveys I have hidden. I use the 'hidden' selector and it shows none. I know there are a few, and I want to unhide them all. I don't even know why I have so many hidden. Some might have been accidental. A lot of selectors don't show hidden inactive surveys, even "hidden" so.... what to do?

I actually noticed this for myself just recently. I had a bunch of hidden surveys, though I had thought that I almost never hide surveys.

I think the "hidden" selector should show all hidden surveys. So, maybe I can fix that.

OK, I just made that change. The "hidden" selector will now show both active and non-active hidden surveys.

My count of hidden surveys jumped from 45 to 442 ! ... 442 seems super high and makes me worried because I really don't think I hid that many surveys. wry smile

I'm a little busy right now, but I'll try to look into it more.

Anyway, maybe try it again now and let me know what you think. It seems more correct to have "hidden" show inactive as well as active surveys. So, the change seems good. But, I'm worried that I'm missing some subtle point if I actually have 442 hidden surveys despite almost never using "hide".

I've hidden surveys by mistake in the past because the link was so close to next new. I think you've separated them out a bit more in recent years though, because I don't seem to have accidentally hidden anything in quite a while.

EDIT: Just checked, and the last survey that looks like it was accidentally hidden by me was from 2004, so I presume something changed after that. I only had six hidden surveys and the most recent three were deliberate because they had spoilers for TV shows or took forever to load.
