Ignore Topic & Ignore Forum

Recommended Posts

Customizing the way you view the forum as an individual has always been important to me (I literally make my own personal Google Chrome extensions for most of  the sites I frequent to customize how they look and behave). With that spirit in mind, we're continuing to add features to let you choose what you can see and how you see it, and today that comes in the form of the ability to just straight up ignore stuff.

I'm gonna... switch around the buttons. Looks kinda odd having them in different order for forum vs threads.

Anywho, if you go into a forum, you should now see a nice big red button which lets you ignore the ENTIRE FORUM. This will make it so ANY threads within this forum will NO LONGER SHOW UP for you in your activity feed, in your searches, or even AT ALL while browsing the forum. It'll be wholesale GONE for you. Same with Topics/threads.

Are you a homebrewer that really only cares about that section of the site and NOTHING ELSE!?!? Well, I'm kinda sad about it, but hey feel free to ignore every other section of the site and BOOM - now you'll only ever see stuff you're actually interested in. Same w/ the collectors and the players - really customize to your liking. Sick of seeing political posts? Ignore em!

 

OH NO! I accidentally Ignored a forum/thread and now it's GONE! How do I get it back!?!?

Simple! Head over to your Account Settings, and you will see options for the topics and forums that you've ignored:

As you can see above, I am ignoring Suggestions & Feedback. Typical!

Luckily, I can click on the "Stop Ignoring" button to see all your lovely comments about the site not working or whatever. Great.

One caveat - You are not able to Ignore the Announcements section of the site. It's important that we be able to communicate with you all when the need arises, so no ignoring that, ok? (Also, the Staff can't ignore the Staff section! Get back to work!)

I hope this helps you to keep using the site in a way that suits your needs! Thanks again for your continued support!

Neat feature but it’s super intrusive on mobile, any way to tone this down to something way smaller? Also just make the politics thread a club

Yeah I'll probably make the button less ginormous, as-is was just the sorta default, fastest way to get it done. 

It wasn't just the politics thread which prompted this, but as for making it a club, I believe that was already discussed by the staff and decided against.

Maybe have a green “Follow This Topic” button too instead instead of the generic placeholder one?

I kind of forget the follow option is there since it just blends into the background XD

I'll be going over the site with a fine-toothed comb with some other folks to improve the UX a bit and make it more our own, and that's good feedback on that front; noted!

If you don't want all the political stuff front and center, a simpler solution could be to just have the everything else forum not show up in the main feed.

As I say, this is just a nice added feature. Nobody messaged me asking to be able to ignore the politics thread or anything like that, I just felt like working on the site and it was on my todo list of things to add. If you wanna filter out politics specifically that's cool. Truth be told, the original inspiration according to my notes was someone said they wanted to only see the Homebrew section of the site because they don't care about people collecting games and how much they sell for.

Excellent work! 

Hopefully you won’t just vanish in a few years and we then start seeing things like...

I'm flattered you think my games would grade so highly.

Very good. Thanks for adding more features and investing more effort into this!

Edit: I think it gets a bit goofy in terms of positioning when there is more than one page (at least on desktop chrome)

Thanks Gloves!

This isn't a big deal or nuthin, but you say that an ignored thread won't be visible "AT ALL while browsing the forum. It'll be wholesale GONE for you." But I still see ignored threads previewed on the Latest Posts feed on the front page.

Well in that case I am a dirty liar.
