    Default Please modify this one ignore feature

    Instead of having a huge notification that a poster you ignored made a post, which is more attention getting them the persons actual post, make ignored posts invisible. Having to scroll past over 80 post notifications that a post was made by the same one person in the same thread because they are too busy chronically last-wording the same one other person in the thread, defeats the entire purpose of having an ignore function.
    Historically: If every melee nerf after each melee class revamp was reverted back to its pre-nerf version, which melee build(s) are OP in the current meta?

It is like going to a museum and bragging about how fast you made it through. Or bragging about how fast you finished a good steak.

    We don't have any immediate plans to update the forums or web site, but if we do, I agree this is something we should attempt to pursue.

    i know you said no plans - but dont you think that is kinda a fail?

    i mean if you make the website more attractive you will get more customer and reassure the ones you have.

    so i know that its not a big thing but look at swtor or wow. they seem to have a good website thing going

    So wait, if you're ignoring someone and they make a post, do you get a notification? Or is it just if they post in the same thread as you?

    Either way, I'd very much like to hear the rational behind such a decision.
    That's not lag, it's just DDO trying to become turn-based again.

    Neither, AFAIK (Unless maybe you've subscribed to the thread, I dunno about that). What happens is you get a big "A USER YOU HAVE IGNORED POSTED HERE" instead of the actual post he made, when perusing that thread. And ther'es an option to see the post anyway. But what really makes it bad is it's the same really-noticeable, impossible-to-read coloration you get when you click on somebody's user-name and hit "View forum posts." So when somebody you've ignored has been very chatty in a thread you're reading, his ignored posts REALLY stand out.

    I wonder if it would be possible for someone good with CSS to whip up a Stylish script that does this.

    I don't think vBulletin -- or any mainstream message board software -- has ever implemented a true "hide ignore posts" feature, despite having seen multiple requests for such a feature on pretty much every message board I participate in. After a quick googling, there do seem to be mods available that you guys could install to accomplish this. Whether you want to run modded MB software is of course up to you.

    There also appear to be greasemonkey and tampermonkey scripts that we as end users can install to accomplish it ourselves. For an example, search google for:

    Greasemonkey script to completely ignore threads posted by some users

    I haven't personally tried it since I don't think I've ever ignored anyone on a message board.
