I made that change and added the following ID's. I still see Labeda Pharaoh's, id 1164 on the front page recent topics block.
// TPortal recent topics block
global $scripturl, $context, $settings, $txt, $modSettings, $forum_version;
// is it a number?
// leave out the recycle board, if any, to exclude certain boards put board id's in $bb array below
$bb = array($modSettings['recycle_board'],384,385,386,1164);
$bb = array(384,385,386,1164);
// to include only certain boards put board id's in array below
$include_boards = array();
