    Ignore threads feature: Let's pretend people aren't talking about other things that bother me. I don't get it. I use the link to see New Postings and Threads where I posted something. If I read a thread I don't want to continue reading....I just don't continue reading it. Maybe people need a way to protect themselves from being tempted to continue to read threads they don't like...but I don't get it. Doesn't bother me and I won't use the feature.

It's a lot more like an M&P or VP9 than a Glock.

    Sometimes the RR takes up the vast majority of the "What's New" section. I really don't care about 99% of what's in that section, and now I can substantially clean up my "What's New" feed with one click. That's a win in my book.

    OK cool: no need to use it.

    You don't get some of the things I like. I don't get some of the things you like. The world is great that way

    In front of pixels.
    Every thread is sacred
    Every thread is great
    If a thread gets ignored
    5 stars I'll rate...
    Fairness leads to extinction much faster than harsh parameters.

    Yep. It's why I generally avoid war movies and most news sites these days, and have started avoiding my local forum. It's also why I quit spending time on Facebook. I don't think I'll make much use of the ignore feature, but it's nice to have.

    "Ignore" is the most useful, time saving feature of this forum. On other forums (like m4carbine), after 2 - 3 days when I click 'new posts' 10 pages of threads pop up, nine and a half of them are clutter I don't care about.

    Thanks for enabling this Tom_Jones

    Now that I've ignored the romper room, will it's posts still show under the "What's New" tab?

    It doesnít appear to have been ported to vBulletin 5, so I hope the bossman sticks with 4.x.
    I use it a ton. I wonder if it runs out of space.

    Just discovered this as well. It may salvage my desire to keep visiting as well as maintain my site supporter status. Time will tell...
