    Quick Ignore Button

    I wish there was a quicker way to add someone to your ignore list. Like a ignore button on their post or something. Perhaps one exists but I cannot find it...I can only do it in the user cp.

    Go to the user's profile -> User Lists drop down near the to left of the profile -> Add User to Ignore List -> "Yes". Not sure if it's any faster, but seriously, don't think adding an 'add to ignore' button next to everyone's post is a good plan either.

    I was thinking that the other day. But since the user in question doesn't show up that much, I figure I can live with it for a while longer.

    I can't believe people actually use that function.

    I can't believe people don't use it more frequently. guess it depends where on the forum you frequent.

    Why not add it to the menu that pops-up when you click on the username to the left of the post?

    That would work too, but a quick ignore button on a person's post would be much more convenient.

    I guess it would cut down on some troubles, but do people really have that much of a problem with what other people say? This is a forum, which by definition is a place for an open discussion. Why ignore anyone on here?

    How many people are you planning on ignoring?

    I think I have 4 people on my ignore list right now. I don't have a problem with what people say, but it's like why listen to negativity when you don't have to. Most of the people I ignore are from the road forum, which has a lot heavy traffic, and thus attracts the low life trolls vying for attention.

    I'll tell you what, I'll look into how much additional coding might be required, or whether it's even available as an option with the forum software.

    Wow, this could be a direct quote from George Bush.
    "Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws" - Edward Abbey

    I have about the same, although only one person on my ignore list still posts. At least one of the others is now banned.

    To be honest some people test my self-control... so might as well remove the temptation.

    vBulletin wont actually let people ignore you IIRC, I'm surprised you can even get to that page.

    Err, I put up the REMOVE from ignore list link, I fail. But you get the idea.
