Additional Thread Tool - Ignore Thread

Okay I asked for this before and I'm asking again, please can we have an additional thread tool that allows a member to add a thread to an ignore list.

In my mind all it would take is an additional field for thread id's to be ignored then alter the search string to filter out the id's in that field.

That way when I do a new posts search I don't get all that drivel in way of topic that should be in the chat room.

Additionally why don't you make the irc server address public with a MiRC/Colloquy or Snak tutorial (For mac users) because the Flash IRC client is always going to be the poorest medium for this and probably the reason why usage of the chatroom is very low.

It was available during the recent downtime but nobody was in it.



Cheers

Sean

Good suggestion.. I think Ian is busy with the tech lounge rearrangement at the moment though, but this is something I'd like to see in future as well

Re: Additional Thread Tool - Ignore Thread

You want to omit ignored threads from just searches or site wide?

For that type of service, I'd be willing to see your bribe and double it.

Re: Additional Thread Tool - Ignore Thread



I meant we should pool our resources and double the amount of the reward for getting the "ignore thread" option implemented. Maybe a thicker coating of grease would make the wheels of industry turn a little better.

Re: Additional Thread Tool - Ignore Thread

BTW seriously GD, maybe it could make it faster if you could suggest some code or whatever you Tech-type people do

I think Ian's massively snowed under.

Re: Additional Thread Tool - Ignore Thread

At a time when some new features are being designed again when Ian is less busy I think it would be great to implement this - the forum is becoming a victim of its own success!


An ignore sub-forum would be good too, but ignore thread would be a good start

Another similar idea is to handle the newbies hello posts differently.
I'm not suggesting to ignore them.
..but I think you could put a single entry at the top of the new posts list and allow that to bring you to all new posts for the introduce yourself sub-forum.

At the moment there are a huge number of introduce yourself posts each turninig up as a seperate thread. Which is great when you want to help out welcomeing the newbies, but getting totally in the way of using the new posts feature.

It takes me longer to browse the forum to find interesting things now, and I am finding myself inclined to spend less time on it as a result.

Cheers,
TB

I'm not a doctor - but I really do recommend braking later
