Ignore member.
01. Feb 2007 at 01:41
 
Hi.
 
I know there's an option to ignore PM's of anyone one may choose.  But I don't see an option for ignoring members' actual posts.  Are there any plans to enable this feature in the near future?  I'd personally like to see it here, and I'm sure it would be useful for at least a small fraction of the population on this board, too.

I'm sorry if I ever said anything to offend you! Please don't ignore meeee!!  cry

Seriously, though, I've been feeling like ignoring someone in particular myself but now that I calmed myself down, I think it would just be childish on my part...  lips sealed

I don't think that'd be possible, if only because people quote earlier posts - you'd need to ignore them too, if it was to be worthwhile.
 
In the mean time, you could scan down the avatars displayed next to posts, and not read the associated postings.  Mine's the green 'MofI'. Wink

Haha, I wasn't going to block any of you in particular  Tongue
 
Ministry, it's MUCH easier to ignore quotes than actual posts, maninly because, if you read a topic from the beginning onward, you never have to read any quotes.  I know you can always scroll past someone, but it's just so much more awesome and easy when the member(s)' posts are not readable in the first place.  I'm sure that, even if this forum doesn't have blocking members as a feature, hacks or add-ins could easily enable blocking members' posts as an option.

Please PM me if you feel someone is being that annoying that you want to ignore their posts - if it's an opinion shared by many others then there may be other ways to deal with problems like this.
 
Obviously if that person is me then, err... maybe don't PM me and tell me how annoying I am!!  Grin

Completely off topic, but are you guys going to be doing s little redesign around here for the new album?  Change up the color scheme or anything?

We're constantly working on new features and improvements to the forum. A major update will happen at some point in the future and a major redesign may happen at the same time. As the design of the forum has no connection to anything PT (except the spiky logo!), any redesign is unlikely to be connected with the release of the new album... But anything is possible!

Maybe I'm wrong but wouldn't it be hard to figure out whats going on in certain threads if the ignored poster posted several replies in that thread and people are responding to their posts.

In that case, the actual quotes can be read, if desired. And besides, blocking someone usually means that the person doesn't ever contribute anything worthwhile to the discussion of topics in the first place.  Tongue

I'm still wondering if this option will ever see the light of day? I, for one, would still find it useful.
 
Thanks for considering.

Me too.  I know Simon previously said we could PM him, but what annoys me will not bother others.  One poster in particular bugs me to the extent that I'm rapidly losing interest in this forum, which is a shame 'cos there are so many great posters here.
