What does it mean on the boards when you look at someones profile and it says ignored by X amount of members? Just curious. Huh

Members can "ignore" another member's posts (the system won't display the content of their post's to you) if they wish by clicking the "ignore" button in the left "profile" column of any of that member's posts.

That entry you are looking at on a member's profile page reports how many people are ignoring that member at that moment.

Ruthi,

There is a button under every members profile. You could push that button, and it wouldn't display that members post. It can be kinda handy. For example, there are three members that can't stand me. They simply pushed that ignore button and I don't bother them anymore. That is what it is for. Expearment with it. Pushe the button, and see what happens. Then just click the button again and it will unignore.

God bless.

John

Cody looks like they all moved over to ignoring me. LOL

I'm being ignored by one person and I'm insulted! I thought I earned more than that by now.
Actually I have no idea who it is or why especially since I haven't been on much but it's ok with me either way.

 Shocked Seems pretty harsh and rude to me. If there is someone who you dont agree with, or like to read input, seems to me just skipping that input would be the right thing to do. Maybe I am just too nice, but probably not, as I tend to say what is on my mind most of the time. Maybe that is what gets some of us in trouble sometimes. I think it has to do with age, lol. When you start getting older, what others think of you doesnt seem quite as important. Grin I guess to each their own. I havent personally met anyone on here, other than Mike, but as I said before, everyone seems nice and helpful. It doesnt take too long to learn who knows what, and how much. We have learned quite a bit about the old gmcs, by experience, but, as far as our Dina, it is a new learning exper.  Grin  Thanks all!

Did John say something?   Grin Grin Grin

I think most of the ignores got their start in the Off Topic section where discussions get a little more intense discussing highly subjective matters.

I have noticed some ignores that I can't imagine why.  I think sometimes it is just someone playing around with the ignore feature and leaving someone ignored.

I think it's regrettable that the option has to exist, but I'm actually using it myself now after a member said something absolutely shameful in the Off-Topic section. I did draft a reply to that member's post at the time, but realised on reflection that his thinking was so off-kilter that I was wasting my time, and the ignore function was the only worthwhile option. I haven't been able to bring myself to visit Off-Topic since, which is a shame as there were some great discussions in there which taught me a lot about alternative viewpoints on big topics.

Ok, two questions...

First, why doesn't the ignore button show up for me?

Second, what the heck is a magazine exchange button?  I see one under Jeremy's profile.

Ok, I just answered my second question. I saw the same button under mine and clicked on it. Took me to my own website.  I guess Jeremy has a website called Magazine Exchange.

Yup. And thanks for advertising the button which everyone should click and pay us a visit - but visit us again in a few weeks when our new state-of-the-art make-money-by-selling-your-old-magazines-in-our-online-marketplace-just-like-on-eBay-or-Amazon site will be up and running!

And, to answer your first question, I don't think you can see your own ignore button as the software considers that the idea of choosing to ignore yourself to be a little too existential.

Well that wasn't quite what I was asking, though sometimes I think I'm being ignored by even my own self. I hate it when I'm trying to have an intelligent conversation with myself, and find I'm being ignored!

I can't see an ignore button on anyone's profile.

I know I'm special, but come on... Sometimes I really want to ignore people.

Wish I could get an ignore button for all the stupid drivers to and from work. Better yet, give me an incinerate button!

Gumpy,

Look at the picture of my bus, when you read this post. Then look just under it. You will see a little Ignore button. Push that little button, and I won't bother you anymore Grin Cheesy Grin. Then you can go to a persons profile page, and it will tell you how many people are ignoring that person.

So again, all you do is look at my post, for example. Go under my picture, and under how many posts I have posted, and click that ignore button. See what happens. Then all you have to do to unignore me, is simply push that again.

God bless,

John

I now use Jeremy's method - I seldom go to the off-topic section (just enough to see if there are any new jokes).  The political rantings and ravings raised my blood pressure too much.  Further, while the on-topic section mostly emphasizes our common bond/interest, much of the off-topic discussion seems to focus on differences - to the point of seeing who can light the dynamite fuse the fastest.

Sometime within the last two years, I decided that I couldn't post a note that we planted a bush in our front yard, because someone could sieze the moment (the word bush) and launch into a diatribe.  

There was an earlier post about the ignore button, that made me aware of it.  I did consider putting one individual on ignore (and discovered that I wouldn't be the first).  I don't expect us to agree with each other on everything.  However, I don't see where trying to force our ideas on another is productive.  In fact, I think we've had people leave over it --- and thus lost some valuable contributors.

What I'd like to see is the option to ignore, but without it showing on the individual's profile.  I don't see the usefullness, or where it helps us with our common interests, to see "this individual ignored by ____ people.

Well, that's ok. I like the look and feel of whatever I'm using so won't change that. I'll just have to continue on my normal way of ignoring everyone all by myself  Cheesy

There's only a couple I really wanted it for, and they were off topic stuff anyway, which I've been filtering simply by ignoring the whole thread, so kinda the same thing.

I do kind of like the idea of displaying how many people are ignoring them in their profile. Maybe when the number gets high they will finally realize that nobody is listening to all their crap and then they''ll either shut up or just go away. Kind of a subtle way to vote them off the island.
