ignored threads

So, why would I ignore a thread - in Calibre there are features that I do not and will never use. Some of those features have dedicated and very busy threads, one at least is so busy it needs to be Sticky

But my request to ignore (to not know) a thread is "More honor'd in the breach than in the observance." Yes I know that's misuse of Shakespeare, but you y'all know what I mean.

I find the result of ignoring busy, no-interest-to-me, threads, even more irritating than not ignoring the same threads (Related->COPS and Plugins->FanFiction) - see screen shot.

Just saying

I can't see the point of the 'ignore thread' feature. I just take no notice of the thread, or unsub. Ignoring it just draws attention to it, making the whole thing more irritating.

I suppose this is your whole point!

I was puzzled a bit on why also until I remembered there is more than 1 way to use this board.

If you happen to use New Posts (on menu above), ignore probably has use

If you view by forum (like I do) it appears strange.

There may also be differences depending on How a thread displays (I use Linear-Display Oldest first)

and - if I used New Posts I'd have to exclude 95% of the board :lol:

I removed the ignore on the COPS & Fanfiction threads, their presence being far less intrusive on my sensibilities than was their absence.

Another new posts person here. That's how I have the forum bookmarked. I have no individually ignored threads, just entire bits I'm not interested in that I've ignored.

It is also easy to ignore certain sections of our web site. For example if you didn't want to view the non-English language section you can simple unexpand it. On the right side of every banner there is a + or - sign. Clicking - removes the section while + returns it. This is generally remembered by the browser but easy to reverse if you decide to look at it again.

In Options I have set up forums to exclude in order to make Today's Posts useful for me. I also ignore some threads for the same reason. I appreciate that this feature is available.

I want to see new posts for the Deals, Freebies, and Resources forum, but I don't want to see 15 Baen bundles threads (which were all active last year during a short period when rules were changing and those bundles were expiring). Ignoring those individual threads meant I could still see the threads that interest me in that subforum using Today's Posts without those Baen threads drowning out everything else.

In my experience, you may also have to go back in and fine-tune the selection. A subforum may be added to a non-English section, and it'll start showing up under the New Posts list. So you might have to add additional threads to ignore as time goes on.

The ignore thread feature would be much more useful if the ignored thread did not activate the forum icon indicating there are unread threads in the forum. Currently if you ignore a thread and there are new posts to the thread then the new posts icon for the forum activates.
