    In an attempt to stem the cat fights and some of the discontent between the members and also as some people seem to take offense at others. I have reluctantly and as a test added an "Ignore" feature to the forums.

    This adds a little link under the user profile part of each persons post which simply says "Ignore" clicking on this will hide whatever has been posted by that member from your view until you click the "unignore" link.

    You are unable to ignore Admins and mods.

    I will try to clean this up a bit and this will be a trial only for now to see if it stifles or improves conversations.

    Your feedback and ideas are always important as usual so I welcome hearing them.

    Dan

    You can check your own ignore list

    Or if you ignore someone it shows their post as "You are ignoring this user"

    There is also a feature to see who is ignoring you though I have not turned that on.

    Also just added a mood mod, but needs better images

    I won't be ignoring anyone! disagreements are part of a forum! they are a place to debate ideas and views aren't they? nothing constructive would ever happen if everyone just agreed all the time!

    Only if the post made sense in the first place, which is the reason for the Ignore button.

    I dare say it is primarily there to be used on the trolls like Mr Seagles.

    Probably worth a shot Dan. I know some sites use infractions so that if people cross the line too often they get the flick (infractions from the mods/admin etc.) That might be going too far but if you needed people to pull their heads in it could be worth it.

    Nah, I know they can be a tad over the top and too frequent. I just have a bee in my bonnet is all mate. A slice of positivity would do wonders

    In the old days when we wanted to ignore someone, we just ignored them.
