Out of curiosity, could the Ignorelist for PMs be extended to the rest of PEEL?  Maybe it could replace the ignored parties' posts with a blank placeholder box.  That would be awesome.  I'd continue to just ignore them myself, but it has become more trying as of late.

Some forum software uses javascript to hide posts from ignored members in question, in which case, if the line of thought in the thread stops making sense without a given post, it is a snap to reopen it.

This progress if fairly simple and straight forward, but of course requires a hack to the software - unless a software extension for Simple Machines already exists (and I do not doubt that a moment).

I think such code already exists; fifteen seconds of snooping around on Simple Machines turned up this item:

But DrT - if we had that feature, then nobody would be able to see anything I write.

Hmmm, I think that's a oretty good idea. Although at the moment, it would mean that half of PEEL would end up being invisible for me. hmpf The other half of PEEL... I'd probably be invisible to them. tongue

That's what I'm saying.

If it makes you feel good, which I'm hoping it will, I like you both. smile
I don't really hate anybody here, just apathy towards members whose posts I quite read completely. tongue

You missed a word. Was that intentional irony? Or unintentional? I prefer unintentional - it's funnier.

I don't know. Some of the least liked PEELers make some good posts once in a while. I wouldn't want to miss out on the juicy posts. Besides, if you spot a juicy post by someone you dislike, you can just hang it over them for a while.

I'm probably the least liked PEELer, and I've already written 2 fan-fictions. That, my friends opponents, is good enough not good enough for an awesome site like PEEL.

Who said anything about your fanfiction? It's the pointless posts you make. Fanfic= not pointless
most of the other things you say that make no difference whether you post it or not= pointless.

By logic, the only posts I should make are fan-fictions. That summs it down a lot...

No no, Bianca is differentiating posts with substance, be they artistic (fanfic) or an actual response of some substance, like an opinion, sensible query, or amusing anecdote... as opposed to random throwaway stuff that contributes nothing.

Here's an example of a totally pointless post (and there are MANY like it):

A log is much nicer than a tree. Trees are big and d-d-daunting.

FACT: A log is a dead tree.

Pointless posts. I have made a lot of them. If the ignore list was spread out to Peelified forums, then you'll miss a lot of the action. Like you said, everybody hates everyone else here. What good is it blocking out other people's posts from whom you don't like - oh, yeah quite a lot if you don't like reading off-topic posts.

Not really a big fan of ignore lists.

Threads make less sense as everyone is seeing their own version of it. In a read-only environment, that's OK. But when someone posts in a thread while ignoring parts of what has been said before with others not realizing that things have been ignored when the post was made, it gets confusing.

Also, posts about ignoring might get annoying ("I bet no one is reading this...", "Hey XYZ, post if you don't ignore me...")

Those are pretty good points marc. I agree, Peel wouldn't be the same with everyone having ignore lists. I personally wouldn't ignore anybody, I enjoy reading everything that is going on and what people have to say.

Marc's wisdom is astonishing right there. Thanks for bringing the place back too!
