an intersting solution





davmcmul
First of all I'd like to warn you that this idea is still in its very early stages.


I have seen many spam related problems and annoyances in these forums and this is my best shot at an all round solution. Please hear me out.



An ignorance button on every forum and thread.



Quite simply, I can either mark this forum/thread as read OR I can ignore it. Quite simply, I will no longer see that thread/forum and I will not in any way be notified of new posts in it.

I see a topic in general chat which i feel to be very spammy, I just press IGNORE and I don't need to worry about it any more, I'm never going to see it again!

I don't speak or wish to learn turkish (no offence meant) IGNORE and I need not know.

I know it seems very crude and unless there is already a mod existing I doubt that it would be very easy to implement, but that's my idea, it's the best I've got.

I had considered making a post requesting the same thing. I'd love to be able to ignore certain forums.

I really get tired of seeing 4 different versions of "What's your favorite movie" every single ef'n day. Rolling Eyes

I really like the service frihost is providing, but it's very hard to carry on a normal conversation here because nobody is reading posts, they're just looking for a thread they can reply to without any thought, without any reading involvoed, and without any conversing.

nasty pasty. Could be easy could be hard. I think a new table would need to be made and basiclly lots of code. Dont know phpbb that well so couldnt say how hard though Smile

A nice idea though and I'd be one who'd use it (more often then not) Very Happy

I'll take a looka round and see what I can find. It is an intersting idea to be sure.

Depends on which one will be used..

Profile Control Panel has the BEST (i'm sure) ignoring system. But, Bondings sure knows how big the mod is Smile

1st, 2nd and 4th seem to just be ignoring users and that users posts etc. the last seems good but different and the 3rd I like Smile

I was already thinking of installing a mod where you have to join a usergroup to either view or hide a forum. But it will only be installed when we have more forums to hide/view. Wink

Isn't that the PRIVATE setting in usergroups?
ldnet
yes, this sounds like a very good idea hope you guys or someone actually makes this it would be very usefull.

Sounds usefull and will be a great help to some people who wish not to see certain forums and topics again Smile

I think we should find some more good mods to add to this forum, maybe also make a skin for it. Not hard at all. Trust me i have made a few.
BlackSkad
Yes, this may be a very good mod to install. There are indeed topics in which I hardly look (like Turkish, French, music,...) I'm not realy interested in those and it would be nice to be able to ignore them.

Maybe the mods can also take a little more care of the topics, so multiple topics are deleted quicker. There is no need for those, one topic is enough. It helps to maintain an overview on the forum, makes some good conversations possible and saves some database-space, but you might need a little more mods. That seems a fair price for a better forum doesn't it?
WickedGravity
It would be good to finally have a way to ignore the spam and even the users that we don't particularly want to listen to anymore.

I dug around on PHPBB myself and found nothing, so i requested a MOD be made, so here's hoping to that.
