    Default Thanks for the ignore tip

    I have been using forums and even creating a few for a long time yet I have always totally ignored the ignore feature... until today. Today I used it for the very first time and I feel wonderful.

    Great feature and even though I doubt I will use it again, at least for a decade or so, I appreciate that it exists.

    Ah Squirrel, though you try to hide your chatter betrays you.

    Which reminds me, on a visit to Toronto. Damn they seem to have the biggest, meanest squirrels I've met so far. Black as night and twice as scary.

    I think yesterday was the first time I've ever used it; certainly the first time on this forum. I forgot to unsubscribe the thread that prompted it though; easily rectified today.

    In settings on the left side there is "edit ignore list"

    For subscriptions under settings ----> subscriptions check the thread and then there is a drop down menu that lets you delete a subscription.

    Anyone have any idea if having a person on ignore will hide any thread they start as well? Or will it show just the replies?

    It only hides posts from the ignored person. The interesting videos are still seen.

    Thank you for the tip. I've never used it before until now but I think it works quite well.

    When you reply to a topic you automatically "subscribe" to it, or at least my account is set to do that (I don't remember if I had to set that or if it was the default). If you find you no longer care to be reading that topic, just scroll to the top and use the "Thread tools" pop-up to unsub from it.

    They've filtered down into New York State.

    And elsewhere.

    Is there any way to implement a sort of 'scroll friendly' ignore option that also blanks out the quotes from users on your ignore list from people's thread replies?

    As is, I get this sort of thing:

    [this message is hidden because x is on your ignore list]

    then next thread posts will have replies with a quote that shows up from the ignored post, like

    "originally posted by x My opinions are more valid than other peoples, straw man... moving on... derail thread with cross-forum chatter"

    That's a really tricky one, and I've seen ignore functions on a lot of forums over the years and I'm not sure I've seen that successfully dealt with.
