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

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

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.

well i see your people's point but ignoring certain members posts may not work out as easily due to some practicalities brought up - if someone annoys the heck out of everyone else it might be because he/she is mucking up whole threads thereby short circuiting the whole disccussion - so if there are people deemed guilty of that an official warning and afterwards an outright ban would be the only solution
 
personally i don't mind silly posts (up to a degree) in some of the general chat sections but would like to see firm moderation in all other threads /...

Have a convo! No matter what. And if you dont like someone..  ignore them in a regular way..
But this is pathetic.
 
One posts a 1000 posts and ALL are bad? Sssuuurreee..  Plzzzzz
 
One who comes on here and wants to 'ignore' people should ignore themselves!!..

The more we're able to edit the annoyance out of our lives, the less we're able to handle it.

The problem is we've built an awesome, sprawling web of technology meant purely to let us avoid annoying people.

 
 
That was a really good read Korton. Thanks
I must say I agree with what he says!

Disagreeing with people is fine.  Actually, it's great - I think it's vital to challenge one's assumptions on a daily basis.
 
However, I have limited tolerance for people who actively seek to annoy, and those who refuse to argue the issues, instead attacking the people trying to conduct a civilised conversation.
 
Hence, an 'ignore member' feature might slightly simplify what I'm doing already.
I do slightly fear that it'd be too easy to use, though, and hence too often used - I'd only use it in extreme cases, like 1-in-6877.

If you suspect that folks may be referring to you, why not moderate some of your more 'outspoken' posts so that there's less chance of people ignoring you? You do sometimes have a tendency to fly off the handle and start attacking people in an arrogant manner - your "Sorry..  but that's sooo rubish!" post above being a reasonable example -  and if you reigned in that behaviour yourself, there may be fewer folks wondering when they would get an ignore feature (which I agree is a poor solution). If you approve of the above linked article, think of this as the honest criticism rather than simply a shrill insult.  Wink

Dutch people are the most outspoken people in the world.. and even for a Dutch' I AM VERY outspoken!
Very open and very direct. Most people are not used to that..
 
Well.. sorry.. take it or leave it. I never looked anyone up to insult them.
I don't wanne sound like a sad Voyage here, ( cry) but i had happened things in my life that most people would have driven to suicide.. 10 years ago and then some.. but i'm still trying to be nice,  altough yet cynical..
 
(Don't try to judge someone you don't know).
 
If one can't take that, too bad. Ignore me..
Not my loss..

Do you really think we care (or should care) about what has happened to you? I'm sure many people in this forum have gone through worse stories in their lives and they are no being a pest.

Agreed.  I didn't enjoy my twenties (let's leave it at that), but I feel no right to take anything out on strangers.  It's no excuse.

my life sucks, but I have no urge to seek to annoy people here to get some outlet for my annoyance for myself and the world/other people, it doesn´t do anything for you, it´s a false "release" of your tension.
I used to do it a bit in the past, I´d be really annoying at an icelandic forum I use, got a 1 month ban twice.   So to people who annoy others, don´t try to spread the negativity of your own life towards others, deal w. it yourself.
If you feel driven to be annoying, here´s another advice in the form of a picture (and remember that pic when you get the urge)

Everybody feels down now and then, and it is okay to say so, that happens, but you don't need to drag someone along with you.  It helps to talk to somebody (forum?  that are just words and isn't a conversation), get together or talk to a friend or relative, or go to see a hilarious movie.  Otherwise, get some help-everyone needs help now and then.  Smiley

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.

Thnxx for your kind words. But I don't feel down sometimes.. i'm majorly depressed for the past 12 years or so..  and been facing things all on my own. (wich also makes you tougher yes, but in the long run.. it does kinda drain you out..)
The thing is that if people did not go through something in particulair themselves, they have hard time understanding it..
And it's not easy to throw personal things in a forum..  and mine are hard to believe anyhow. Too weird to be true.. lol?
 
But hey.. i still live..  so that's something.?.

No, Treewoman, it's not you.  And I wasn't the one who said that it was definitely a cloak.  Anyway, I've decided to just get on with it and not let something so trivial bother me.  There are more important things in life to get annoyed about.
