Ignore User Feature on TF

The twin vs single thread prompted me to make a discovery which I would like to share with anyone else who may be unaware of its existence. On some boards the Ignore User feature is prominently displayed next to the user name in every thread. It is fairly well hidden on this board but available nonetheless.

Go to your User Control Panel and about midway down on the left hand side under "Settings and Options" you will find an option to edit your personal ignore list. Trust me, it can make your TF experience much more pleasant. And thank you to the mod who pointed this out to me.

The "ignore member" option is useful when another member's life purpose is to harass you.

I don't get it. What is the purpose?

What does it do?

I use it very rarely on any of the forums that I frequent but when I do use it I do so to avoid seeing the non-stop drabble that the occasional user seems compelled to post. I still see their nonsense if someone else quotes it but otherwise they are invisible to me. You may be able to accomplish the same thing by avoiding reading the posts from people that annoy you but I am not that disciplined.

If you add a member to your ignore list you do not see their posts and they cannot message you via PM. It's Cyber Shunning and an extremely useful tool if there is someone who gets under your skin.

You can edit your ignore list here: http://www.trawlerforum.com/forums/p...?do=ignorelist

Personally I don't see a use for it.

I am capable of ignoring thing and people myself..

Ask my wife. She thinks I ignore everything.

Either that or I'm brain dead. She asks me all the time.

Doesn't anything bother you?

I say, yep.

But I just ignore it.

I've used it once. I'm always up for a spirited discussion, especially if both parties are willing to keep their ears open and learn from each other. Close minded know-it-alls that lob antagonistic troll bomb comments get ignored.

Skipper, I've only one member on the ignore list, and it isn't you.

Thanks Bob. I too am fed up with the endless drivel in the single v twin and will now have fewer posts to troll through to see if there is anything interesting going on!

So am I, but I had to, for just one member. Using the Forum became so much better.

That's great! Can I borrow that phrase from time to time? I promise to return it untarnished.
