Ignore Button
« on: January 03, 2014, 05:29:20 PM »
You know how when you click on someone's profile it has the add to buddy list on it?  Can we get an add to ignore list button below that?
I don't even care to find out what you're doing wrong, but I'm sure you're doing something wrong.

How about a button to ignore/unignore users under their posts, next to "report to moderator"? I'm asking because there's already a working modification for that, so I could just install that and not have to do any work :P

You can already ignore users. Why do we need an extra button for those too lazy to do it the normal way? We are adding loads of great features. Lets not clutter the site up with redundant buttons.

Quick extra question.

If you go to Profile-Forum Profile-Actions there are two options. 'Delete account' and 'Check this member'. What does 'Check this member' do? It requires a password which makes me scared.

Hmm, the mod I found online adds this to the bottom:



Personally, I don't think that would contribute to the clutter. It lets you ignore people without leaving the thread, and brings you right back to where you were. I don't notice that section of posts unless I'm consciously looking for it. However, it doesn't matter to me either way, and I agree that ignoring is easy enough as it is. Anyone with opinions about this, please speak your mind.

That should not be visible to non-admins. Thanks for letting me know. It's not a big issue, given that it won't let you do anything, but we should probably hide that link at some point.

"Check this member" allows us to check a member against the StopForumSpam database - one of our lines of defence against spambots :)

Let's keep this thread on topic, shall we?
