I will write up some specifications on a comprehensive ignore system and post back shortly. Right now this seems to be a summary of things, places (and ways) you would like to ignore.

- Ability to ignore/hide threads started by people on your ignore list
- Ability to ignore/hide individual threads
- Ability to select forums to ignore/hide from New Posts and the Home "Portal" Page
- When reading through a forum by "next thread" have it skip threads if marked ignored or started by someone on your ignore list.

Is there anything else I am missing or other suggestions?

Not sure if this is included:

When reading through a forum by "next thread" have it skip threads marked ignore.

I hope everyone is at least somewhat appreciative of the humor in this thread.

Without humor, there is only death.

BTW, is there anyway that I can always have that smiling senior lady who really wants to date me on my banner ad?

Ha

I don't get that one. OTOH, at least I am no longer being bombarded by the gay & lesbian housing development in Arizona.

Ok, I have written up the specifications for a system with the features you all have requested. I also thought of a new option while I was writing that up that I thought might be of interest to some of you.

The idea is that you could set in your UserCP to ignore all the members with less then X posts. That way if you are the type of person who like things "the way it was" then you can set that number kind of high and just ignore all the threads started by new members which will reduce the amount of threads you have to read where they might be asking about a topic that was formerly covered. I am hoping that this would not be used by too many people and we would still have plenty of willing members who would interact with the newbies and help point them in the right direction.

I'll have some feedback later next week on the development of a more comprehensive add on to the ignore features and will post an update at that time.
