Is there (or can there be) some function where you can choose to "ignore" a certain poster for thread notifications?

If you use the facility which emails you every time a new posting has been made to a thread that you have subscribed to, you get sent an email... could there be some way to "ignore" certain posters to your subscribed threads (so you don't get sent emails)?

(i.e. Boo Boo posts a load of rubbish on just about every thread imaginable, could there be some way to stop me receiving email EVERY time - FAR too regularly - that she does this...?)

"User CP / Edit ignore list" should hide the posts I don't know how it interacts with the mail function. (which I don't use as I was getting 100's of posts a day.

Having said that, tou still get to see that the person has posted, not the content, so it's not much of a feature.

Not having the top ten list and the number of posts visiable would probably be a better step.

Yeah, I don't suggest using email functionality for every thread. You just get spammed...

I've only subscribed to a couple of threads in the past and only for short periods of time [while I'm keeping an eye on something]. If people are posting rubbish on a thread that you are interested in then;

Click on their profille,
Look near the bottom their is an option to add them to your ignore list, click on that.

They will be added to your ignore list. There posts will still appear but the content will not be visible. You will have the option to view a post if you want but at least you can just browse past them.

Actually it would be useful to see ore than just the last poster on a thread, in case a proper discussion has been mucked up by the usual suspects.

But I suspect that's not built in to the software.

Maybe this ignoring tedious posters doesn't work?

I mean I can still see RDB11's posts! ;)

and Boo Boo's too :moon:

Craig at Fencing.net has moved the board onto the next version of VB and you can do this on that. This version doesn't support that.
