Ignoring Members

The vBulletin software includes the ability for members to chose to ignore other, specific members. Has this ability been disabled on TFL?

I have run into a few members lately that have absolutely nothing positive to say, but the posts aren't worthy of a suspension / warning / ban. I would like to have the choice to not be tortured by their idiotic babble.

Was the -ignore- ability disabled on these forums, or did vBulletin remove it in the latest update?

go to the users profile
below their name will be a drop down menu called "user lists"
drag down to "Add to ignore list" and click

it's still there, and this is place is still running on the last version of vbulletin. the newer version adds nominal features

You can also add to your ignore list by going to your own User CP and clicking on "Edit Ignore List" in "Settings and Options".

If I ignore myself, does that put me in invisible stealth mode?

Thanks for the help.

I must have been having some kind of issue with cookies. Although logged in, my User CP has looked much different the last few days. After logging out, and back in; the option showed up.

Is there a way that I can ignore "All" (except me of course) so that I can just hear myself talk?

Excellent! With WA going invisible, I guess I can un-clutter my ignore list a bit.

Ken: Yes! Any SIG will do.


"Kin ya put mods on the ignore list?" You kin try, but I think it would be a waste of time. Seriously, let me know if it works.

My head is just swelling with authority which can't be ignored!
Ken! Be quiet! I know what you were about to say.


I thought it might say something like that, but wasn't sure.

This is the only TFL forum where things don't have to be firearms related. Obviously several of us went off the deep end with the ignoring fun, but its general theme was still board related.

(And, yes, I know you were joking. )

(Guess I'll never know if Ken saw my hidden message.)
