    Just curious. How does the ignore function work on this site? Does it make it so that the specific user you ignore can't see your posts and you can't see his?

    No, just so you can't see posts or threads started by them. There is a little red note at the bottom of threads that says you are not reading all the responses because you are ignoring some people.

    Ignore is great. I put a few people on ignore for a few months until I get over it, then unignored them. Most of the time it was my own "weenie-ness" that I solved by ignoring, and you just forget about it, as it really was no big deal in the grand scheme of life (jerks will be jerks, the only thing I can control is my reaction or lack thereof).

    Ignore is the best way to keep enjoying forums like this.

    If I don't react or respond, it's either because I'm super disciplined or have you on ignore, lol. For the record, none of you azzhats are currently on ignore.:D

    Thanks for the response. Never had anyone on Ignore, but was curious how the feature worked.

    Is there an “Ignore All Alabamians” function or must I do it one person at a time?

    Just remember that you can still see the post of someone you have on ignore,
    if someone else quotes them.

    For extra credit you can be like ___ _______ and post your ignore list.

    Everyone enjoyed it. Well, except for moderators.

    Also, if/when you do start using ignore, don't like, quote, or reply to the person you are ignoring. The software will let you, but then they get the gratification that goes with:

    How about an 'unignore' function. Like the Mods suspend you. Then those that want to see you can.

    Using the “Thread Tools” to ignore idiotic threads helps streamline things as well.

    Cool, I just used it on that motorhome one that is very popular for some reason. It'd be nice if you could ignore it without having to open it, and adding to the view count(even though you don't want to view it). Its almost too much work to ignore a thread. I guess it depends on how annoying it gets.(popping up over and over on the recent list)

    If they quote using the forum functionality, the system will cut our the quoted portion. All you see is the answer. If they quote using cut+paste you are stuck seeing the quoted part.

    I didn't know that. I haven't used the ignore function in many years.

    I use that function quite a bit. I don’t have anyone personally on ignore but I have ignored countless threads. I just ignore threads in New Posts as that is where I spend all of my time. If I don’t care for the subject or have grown tired of a particular thread, it goes on ignore. Simple. Makes it so much easier.

    I haven't ignored a member in a while either.

    But I just looked and over the years my ignore list grew to nine members.

    Interestingly, all have either been banned or gone inactive.

    I like that idea. I would have used it for mscard88 a few times.

    Not on this software. At least not for me. The one poster I have on ignore no longer exists as far as I can tell. Even if they are quoted by someone else

    Isn’t the ignore function kind of like a “safe space”? I won’t participate, I’m fully capable of disregarding someone’s comments even though I’ve been exposed to them.

    Unlike this gal:

    Here you go. It's my understanding you can buy these by the thousands. That might last you a week or so.

    That was true in the old software but it not true in this software. If you ignore someone you won't see anything they post or other's quotes of them. In fact, you won't see entire threads if they start them. (Oops, I see Tarheel beat me to it).


    I used to have a few people on ignore...I don't any longer. But I might have to place one special little sawed-off individual back on that special list.

    I use that function daily. It's handy. I still don't understand the three boxes that one needs to check when using it though.

    Ignore this thread on...
    • News Feed
    • New Posts
    • Thread List

    Duhhhh...why would I want to ignore a thread but not ignore those things? Am I missing something?

    Not at all, but I've been seeing you taking regular little jabs at me for a couple of months now since I've had you off of ignore. You seem to not be able to let it go. Such a pity (or is it petty?).
