The "ignore" feature hides a member's posts in forum threads. That's good, but it doesn't prevent his threads from showing under the "Forum" pulldown nor on the forum page, and I still get a notification when someone that I ignore replies to one my posts. Could the feature be extended to cover these cases as well?

I too would like the ignore feature improved. It could be easier to add someone to your "ignore" list too

A Dev or Admin will catch this thread and shed any light on whether this can/will be implemented. :)

Cheers.

We won't be changing anything until after the 3.4 upgrade. So you might have to put up with this for another month or so.

It is not all that hard just use the dropdown on your user name and it's the condensed choice.

Just to add to this.
If you subscribe to a thread notification via email you still get informed about ignored user's replies. I guess this isn't an easy 'fix' but yes it's something IPB should be working on.

My 2 cents, the ignored members posts are still shown when someone quotes them too

I'd like to see an option for ignoring specific threads too if that was possible

Anyone? I don't know what anyone else has done. Personally though, no. I actually don't like IPB, although these day's there isn't a decent competitor after Internet Brands took vBulletin for a cash cow.
