Ignore tool?
 
Is there any way to set any kind of "ignore" for a particular thread or forum? Other forums I subscribe to have an "ignore" tool, but I don't see anything here other than ignoring other members/users.

I like using the New Posts tool, but there are so many threads in which I unfortunately have no interest that it can be very frustrating. Like counting to a million, and add a word. Glad these are there, but wading through them can be time-consuming. :)

Thanks,

Roger

What do you mean "wading" through them? Just don't click on them.

I think this forum is very well organized. It is easy to skim the thread topics to choose what interests you and very easy to read a sentence or two on the threads you have picked to determine if you want to spend more time and read further.

If you are pressed for time, just don't access the forum until you feel more relaxed and less time constrained. The key is to personally take control of and ownership of your reactions and responses.

When visiting the JOF site, I use either a PC (with the quick-pick list on the right side and signatures displayed) or a tablet (no pick-list or signatures displayed). With the tablet, my default is to launch JOF FORUM where posts are grouped by topic, then dig deeper through those of interest. I am also a frequent user of ADVANCED SEARCH to hone-in on specific topics.

Interesting responses. Let me point out that if you use the New Posts function, EVERY topic stays there and bubbles up to the top of the list until you open the last page of the thread to mark it "read". You can also go to the main forums list, open individual forums, and then mark all messages in the forum as "Read", but that's kind of convoluted. I'm suggesting that an "ignore" tool might be helpful, not in a rude way, but allowing users to focus on their individual interests.

I'm guessing that if you provide the funding for your reading option, you might get some traction. Frankly, it took me longer to read your post than it took to "wade" through the handful of "recent threads" posted on the right side of my page and decide which one or two I would take a quick look at.

When you finish reading all the new posts on the right that you want, just go to the Quick Links button and select "Mark Forums Read".
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Here are the instructions from the forum usage list:

Ignore feature

You can place other forum members on an ignore list so that you can't read their posts and they cannot use the PM system to contact you.

To do this:
Click on 'usercp' on the upper blue nav bar.
Find "settings & Options" on the left side menu and select "edit ignore list"
This is useful for those members that really push your buttons, or whos' posts consistently annoy the heck out you (or if your ex posts here)

If you have a problem with another members posting style we strongly encourage you to use the ignore feature. As always, if you feel a post is inappropriate, use the report post button to report it to site staff.

I can empathize with the OP on this one. I use the "Today's Posts" feature whenever I visit to get the latest information posted. I, too get tired of seeing the same old threads recycled to the top time and time again. I'm all for the idea of an "Ignore Thread" option and would use it often if offered.

Hey, you actually READ my suggestion!!! :)

BTW, thanks for mentioning the Today's Posts feature. I had not found that yet, and it is a step in the right direction.

Thanks,

I too would like to have an "ignore" option for Recent Threads that do not interest me. I also want to comment that I'm surprised at some of the responses to rkresge's post; many of those responses border on being snide, which is odd for a group that likes to tell everyone what a friendly, helpful bunch we are. And, if you look closely, no one has actually addressed his question.
