How possible would it be to have like, Kaelik, Zinegata and ubernoob automatically ignore Crissa, Ganbare and whoever elses posts and vice versa? Not showing that there is a post and letting you click to read the actual post, but not seeing that post at all? So that they have to actively log out, read it, copy and paste as needed, log back in and then reply to have an argument.

Because it seems everyone is having bullshit arguments and bringing discussion from thread to thread and shitting all over the forum.

Not permanently, just for a couple of weeks or so, since making it not worth arguing for a couple of weeks may reduce the threadshitting.

Would it be possible to expand this to an 'ignore thread' feature? This would alleviate the issue of repeatedly checking a board when a single thread that you don't care about (say, Dominions of the Den) keeps accumulating posts.

I'd like to second this idea, for the same reason.

it is possible with the software as that phpbbhack exists for this version.

likewise i would like for this feature as well...never really got why they decided to add usergroups but leave out ignore functions by default.

While we're at that, is it possible to add the "view newest post" link (what "" points at) to the thread marker ()?

After the recent rehash of the dog-rape argument. I would like to say that the ignore thread feature would be awesome.

Thanks for working on it, guys.

Sign me up for wanting to ignore any and all future dog-rape threads.

I may have missed it, but is there some way to take a user of your ignore list?

There's a link in the first post in this thread. Zherog has it in all caps and everything.

Other than that, the quick and dirty way is to put any one random person on ignore, and then follow the link on the page after that, which brings you to your ignore list. You can then remove that random person plus the other one you wanted to remove.

It's a kludge, but it works.

I wonder if it's possible to change the ignore message to "You are ignoring [Poster], Click this Schmuck Bait to read their post"

Cuz I keep clicking that box, and it never gets any better afterwards New Tongue Smilie

I'm wondering if it's possible for a person to be sent message telling them they've been ignored. Not necessarily by whom, just that another person has put them on ignore. The ignorer gets to hope the ignored is shamed into being less of an asshole, the ignored gets to giggle in their immaturity at having chased off another "idiot."

Prak, I think timing would make it patently obvious who was doing the ignoring in most such cases. And that means anonymous messages would be pointless. Unlike some others I visit, this forum doesn't have any sort of taboo against saying "I'm going to ignore <<ignoramus>> if he keeps this up" or "why the hell aren't you folks ignoring <<asshole>>, he never has anything to say" in actual posts, so if you somehow think doing so might shame someone, go nuts.

For some reason the more passive aggressive "You have been ignored" message appeals to my mind more. I don't know why, it's just a momentary whim.

The classic solution is to delay the notification long enough to make it ambiguous which argument prompted which person to ignore you.

That's true; on the other hand, someone has requested the feature, suggesting that there are people around that don't want to publicly announce their actions like that. I'd certainly appreciate the option if I had reason to ignore someone.

Probably moot anyway.

Is it possible for the boards to have a weird hickup so like80% of all prominent posters are ignored? I am totally sure I had like 2-3 people max. on my list and now when I log in, almost everyone is in there. I didn't do it.
