I Can Make You All Disappear!

Recommended Posts

I don't use it. There's noone whose opinion I hate enough to use it. I skim threads as it is. I manually ignore if something gets off topic enough.

 

Will some people use it? I'm sure, and to good effect. However I have the good position to not really care what anybody says.

 

One board I was on that had the ignore feature... well, it didn't work out so well. People would see a blank post (due to being ignored) in one of their threads, so there was a lot of turning off and turning on. And of course, everyone was mature about it. B)

So, what's going to happen with the forum ignore user feature, anyone using it yet? Like it? Dislike it? How will it change the forums, if at all?

 

I have a better feature. I mentally ignore the forums when I want. No need for software crutches!

 

I'll likely not use it, since if I'm here, I'd like to read a thread uncensored. I prefer people getting banned. B)

Steps for ignoring a moderator:

 

1. Click on "My Controls" at the top right of the forums page.

2. Towards the bottom of the left-hand column, look for the "Options" menu.

3. Select "Manage Ignored Users" from that menu.

4. In one of the blank boxes, type "Keystone."

 

See the little note on that page, however, that says that some users cannot be ignored, because of the settings for the group they are in. For example, I am in the group called "Sitewide Moderators." Give it a try and report back with your findings.

 

It is quite likely that I simply cannot be ignored. Auntie, you know I'm irresistible. B)

I know this is off-topic, but since we're talking trolls, I want some clarification. I always thought the term derived from trolling, like fishing. You know, you put the lure in the water and troll along at 2-3 knots and wait for a fish to bite.

 

So is it trolling (fishing) or are you a troll (waiting under a bridge to eat billy goats and small children)?

 

On topic, if nobody answers (sees) this, I think I hate the ignore feature.

I don't think I'm going to ignore anyone, I'd much rather see their rantings, and then choose to ignore it on my own. After all, I don't think anyone really knows your ignoring them, unless you tell them.

 

Good grief, whats happening to the page layout!! Okay, it seems to be fixed now.

The biggest problem with being a troll is all the waiting under the bridge.

That's why there are so many geocaches hidden under bridges--it's the trolls.

 

Ah, in my day, I was a most excellent troll. One of my favorite pastimes was baiting people who claimed to have me on ignore. Sooner or later, they'd always break.

 

Good times, good times.

Auntie, is that a flag that your avatar weasel is wrapping herself in? If so, which one?

I am wondering if you choose to ignore your Approver/Reviewer/Documenter (Doc. for short) what happens when you submit a cache? Are you also ignored in return? Or if there a problem with said cache and you recieve an E-mail telling you what the problem is, will that also be ignored? :)

Shirley,

 

The ignore feature is only for forum posts, not for caches, cache pages, or emails.

Thank you Quiggle,

 

I will be sure to not ingnore your posts now, as you are very helpful. (I was just teasing - but, I guess someone might have thought that they could place an ignore on their "Doc's").

 

This has been a fun thread...in all honesty, I feel that the 'ignore' feature might be not used all that much.

 

Oh, wait - there is that one person....maybe...

The ignore feature works well but you still see the avatar so you know that that person posted something. Then it temps you with the link to view that post. I would have thought if you are ignoring a person then you wouldn't see anything, like they don't exist. :blink:

 

The other thing I noticed is if another person quotes your ignored person, you will see their post in their quotes.

 

So it's really not a true ignore, more like a (place fingers in ears and yell) "NANANANANANANA I'm not listening to you" thing.

I don't use it. There's noone whose opinion I hate enough to use it....

 

Ditto, there are a few people who's opinion is always on the other side of mine, but that makes for dicussion not a Bozo Bin Award Recipient Winner.

 

Anyone else worthy would not last long enough to use it.

 

Now if I showed up in someone elses Bozo Bin, that would just be cool.
