Forum feature - global ignore

There is a new tool available to help you ignore content you may not be interested in or which you find particularly annoying.

You can ignore a thread, an entire forum section or a member. You will not see this content once you have selected ignore.

To ignore a thread: open the thread and select ignore from the thread tools drop down menu at the top of the thread.

To ignore a forum: open that forum and select ignore from the forum tools drop down menu.

To ignore a member: In your User cp look for "ignore settings" and add the members name to the window that come up when you click on the link. Please note that you cannot ignore moderators

You can manage all your ignored content in the "ignore manager" In your user cp.

One final note - some of these features will not be available if you are still using the old forum style. (you can change this setting by scrolling all the way to bottom of the page and looking to the left - select FGRV 2.0)

Thanks Janet. I requested this feature to get rid of some of the heated towing threads.

And no, I can't drive by an accident with out rubbernecking, either.

I have a couple of opinions on this feature: 1] If I don't want to look at something I just don't click on it. 2] Since there is the probability or possibility that I may be one of those being ignored, I might as well not post anything. I will however continue to read those threads that interest me as I have found lots of useful information here that I greatly appreciate. Bob

I'm with you Bob... sorta like the channels on a television. It's about choices. I find there are nuggets of good information found on most threads. I TRY not to allow certain personalities dictate what knowledge I wish to gain.

Different strokes for different folks... I guess.

The ignore member feature has been here for awhile, what is new is the ignore thread feature. So, if a thread degrades to bickering and you just can't help but peek to read the latest fisticuffs, you can click on the thread tools and ignore the thread.

This forum is pretty well moderated, but other forums I read often stray into political stuff and I like the ignore thread feature especially well on those forums.

True, but different people have different ideas of fun and limited patience for differing opinions, often on mundane topics.

I wonder what happens if you ignore yourself?
Maybe you can't because when you send the ignore command it will ignore itself!

Bob I have been flamed on a board, ran off a board by a few people who thought their you know what didn't stink. I find everyone has something for everyone you in particular. When these sort of people can run a board they cost themselves.

I suggest you go ahead and post. Now when you see a certain signature don't even waste your time or breath with them. Which I do!

I have found some people want to drive 70-75mph on tires rated for 65 and if I point this out they become very irate I don't understand it. For safety and economy I drive 50 this is my personal preference it gives me an extra 5mpg money is important to me even though I can spare it.

I like this board it is calm I don't see any flaming I doubt if it is allowed. Each of us has different personalities and different styles. This is what makes for a great board!

I say go ahead and post away! Don't worry about it!

Perhaps it's time for a reminder that FiberglassRV.com has a tool available to help members ignore content they may not be interested in or which they find particularly annoying.

As explained in previous posts on the topic, if you ignore a member, you still see that that person has posted ( you just can't read it ). And, then you read the responses to that post. So, ignore doesn't really work. Only thing to do is not respond.

Will this "new" feature also eliminate the notice you see in the thread?
