Ignore board options
« on: February 18, 2015, 02:46:09 PM »
While we're on the subject, the capability of being able to block certain forums (for me, that would be the DUmp and all sub-DUmps) from appearing has never returned since the Great Computer Hack of 2014.

there is a substantial amount of traffic in the DUmp that appears when I hit the "see new posts since your last visit" button and while I appreciate those who are regular participants of the Freak Show known as Skin's Island, I really couldn't care less about Atwater, William Rivers Pitt, or the Subway Cat, whoever the **** that is.

It would be nice if the admins could restore that capability.  :bow2:

I think this is something that needs priority.

Of course, I'm fully aware--and very much appreciative--that conservativecave is maintained by volunteer slave-labor, especially on the part of two individuals, who're usually pressed for time and failing in energy.

But if the opportunity and the motivation arise, I think this needs priority.

I've always been grateful that the DUmpster's done so well, at the same time fully cognizant that the primitives aren't everybody's piece of cake, and other forums need traffic, too.

True, I'm sort of biased, because Eupher here is someone I deeply respect and admire--love ya, man--but I'm not asking it just for him; I'm asking it on behalf of other members or potential members whose interests lie elsewhere, and who might be turned off by the preponderance of primitive material.

Check your profile.  It should be under Profile > Modify Profile > Ignore Board Options now.

Let me know if it doesn't work.

Sorry, doesn't work.

I logged out, then in again, but the only options I get under Profile > Modify Profile are these:

The "Buddies/Ignore List" refers only to people, not forums.

Is this still an issue ? I just took a look at my profile, and Ignore Boards is available to me, just above "Buddies/Ignore list".

Yes, it's still an issue. This is what I have available to me:

Ain't no "Ignore Boards" option. The "Buddies/Ignore List" pertains to people, not forums.

I made a couple of changes to the forum settings.  Check your forum profile... you should have the option to ignore specific boards now.

The list isn't complete.  I only added the DUmpster and sub-forums for now.

Yo, Adrian.

Hallelujah! No more DUmp!  :-)
