New Option for the Board

There as been some requests made to have the ability to ignore certain post form certain members.

Members would have the ability to put any members on a list to ignore all post from any members on the "ignore" list.

This is something I am not sure is needed, but since this is a member driven board I will honor all the members thoughts on this.

If for some reason you need to express yourself about this possible new feature and need to remain anonymous or feel more comfortable doing so in private - feel free to PM me directly.

Would ignoring someone have a check and balance so-to-speak? Maybe someone has a bad night and doesn't like my opinion, so they ignore me. Would admins be able to override it?

It can come in handy from time to time.

IF you want an example the Troy board has been LITTERED with the most obnoxious Trolls I have ever seen. And they posted A LOT. It was simpler to put them on Ignore.

So far Ive not run into anyone here that would be an issue for either a Owls fan or opposing.

Not sure of your question here, but if you ignore someone you don't see thier post…if they ignore you, they don't see your posts…that's pretty much it…

Re: New Option for the Board

what are the pros and cons of ignoring someone?
all members here seem civil to me, I know sometimes people turn pretty obnoxious, but all in all everything is fine the way it is.
Keep up the good work.

ahh... I thought if I were to hit the "ignore" button, the person who posted would be banned. Nevermind then.

Anyone who was here for the BOSSMAN fiasco should be voting "yes" to this idea… the guy nearly crashed our board with his B.S.

I'm with you 100%
