YES! Finally finally finally!
There is no inherent ignore function on this forum, but as @Nathan
told me several years ago, there is the option of custom scripts in greasemonkey
Yes, and I have found just a script for that:http://userscripts-mirror.org/scripts/review/174750
If you take that and put it into greasemonkey in firefox and you change it so it works on this forum - then yes
it actually does work.
For testing purposes I entered my own nick, and suddenly all of my posts were gone
That script was not written by me. Using someone else's code might be dangerous. Be aware of that.
I do not take responsibility.
Anyway, it is not "perfect" yet for this forum in the sense that a person's entire existence is not yet erased from the forum. You will still see some traces of their activity.
But the most important thing works: You do not see their posts anymore.
So that you don't see anything of that person anymore. As if they had been completely erased.
Now this thread is NOT meant to discuss the ethics of an ignore feature.
There are advantages and disadvantages. I do NOT want them to be discussed here.
Please make a seperate thread for that if you are interested in that.
I just want to make one small comment on that:
This forum has rules. And moderators. I have been here since 2012.
I have seen many times that it is very easy to annoy someone even within the forum rules.
Recently it has gotten so bad that I do not wish to be on the same forum anymore as a certain member.
And this is my solution so that I don't have to leave.
I feel like a huge burden has fallen off my chest!
Goodbye! Goodbye to those who I will put on ignore from now on.
And to those that will put me on their ignore list. Finally, goodbye!
You can find my enhanced version of that script and instructions on how to use it below
, in the thread.
