Every forum I've seen attempt an ignore user feature ends up in a lot of confusion about who is reading who's posts, and an abundance of "well I'm putting you on ignore for that!" attention whoring.

There are plug-ins you can install to accomplish the same thing, but I think anything official is just going to end in tears.

I'll look into the plugins - Thanks, I didn't know about those.

The ignore feature does work nicely over at Qt3 though :-)

Simple answer - 7 day ban for any user who does that.  Easy breezy.

The previous attempt to install the feature resulted in a retraction of it- in my opinion it caused more harm than good and broke the experience for some people. Sure, it works on other forums, but that may be an implementation issue as much as anything- We use a different software than they do. Personally, I feel that the 'ignore' function that comes with the user itself should be sufficient.

Indeed it is.

Actually, I think that's part of why the ignore feature works so well there.  It's very low key, and there's no announcement on your profile about how many people are ignoring you (like what happened here).  I think that was one of the biggest failures of the previous ignore feature here.

1) LOL YES IT IS.
2) How did I miss this entire ordeal the first time around?  I didn't post in that thread and genuinely have no recollection of it.  Maybe I was on vacation or something.
3) Who the hell thought it was a good idea to make the ignore # visible?  OF COURSE that's bad.  Why didn't we just go full bore and include the list of people who ignored people?  Go big or go home.

They're annoying when they're being good-natured with each other. They get entertaining when they start really digging at each other.  ninja

Agreed.   No need for ignore on this forum.

If you go back and look at any zeke implosion thread, you'll notice that I'm usually far from the only one going at it with him...and oftentimes i'm not even the most prolific.  i also have a soft spot for the guy and usually we end with the internet version of a handshake.  i've annoyed you before though, although i'm not sure why as i tend to go out of my way to be nice to you.   icon_confused

ah well, you can't please all of the people, all of the time.  or, in my case, the danes any of the time (that's a hidden swipe at my old nemesis DArtagnan).

Changed my mind.  I'm now with those that want an ignore user feature.  Caveat:  I want the power to force specific other forumers to ignore each other.
