    Re: How much longer until the ignore button returns?

    Hi Mighty, don't have a specific date for you; it depends on how long it takes the developers to work through the other items that are ahead of it on the list. Because of development work they also have to do on other projects as well, I'd estimate a couple of months.

    Re: How much longer until the ignore button returns?

    Honestly I believe the messy quoting system is more important than ignore because it makes posts almost unreadable. 

    Ignore I'd put second on the list, that's my view anyhow.

    Third would be making it easier for new folks to find the forums rather than the random menu locations and deep scrolldowns there are mostly now.  (after the first two points are done). 

    Right away would be more honest communication with regulars about why this happened and the level of priority it really has (two months out was a good start). This input is coming from someone who handles PR fires for a living. :)  

    Fourth would be paying just a bit more attention to the most destructive trolls. For example in the Celts forum there is one sockpuppet posing as a Celtics fan who is not. I know this may sound strange but even in an anonymous forum a sockpuppet is very destructive. Outright Laker trolls - at least you know where they are coming from. And yes I'm in an expert in Internet community moderation so I'm not making this up....

    Take this in the good spirit as I'd like these forums to succeed, many others would too, and we're willing to help. 

    Remember the ignore doesn't need to grandfather in past data. It could start from scratch and be useful, that would likely make it easier for your developers I would think.

    Re: How much longer until the ignore button returns?

    I do my own workaround for  the  quote system to clean up it's confusing look.  I can use colored and different types of fonts by first typing is MS Word and then cutting  and  pasting it into my board post.  Images can be cut and pasted from  the  internet,  but not being  able to upload jpg's means  I can't  edit images in  Photoshop  and upload them anymore.  I can live with all of that and be patient.  I know you  have other priorities.

     

     

    But we really need the ignore  button

     

     

    It is seriously needed


    Thanks to not  having  it, almost  ready to boycott coming here.  On the front  burner is getting too obnoxious

    Any glimmer of that button being reinstalled yet?  It's been more than a couple of months, and we need it bad in CC.

    Re: How much longer until the ignore button returns?

    Thanks, Dottie.  It's encouraging at least to see a list of restorations/additions that are in the works.  The "ignore" button makes life so much easier in CC.

    In response to AcheNot's comment:

    Nope. I'm not "too much". I'm just right

    In fact, I'm always right. All day/every day




    Ache, I hope BDC recognizes what a valuable contributor you are to these forums. Imo BDC should offer you a position in HR, Director of Training and Development.

    Although, I'm sure you are overqualified and have much more important career obligations to consider right now.

    PS: Thanks Dottie, I look forward to the updates

    Yes Ache,exactly... just look at this discriminatory remark a member of MGAA/OBN recently made to a new poster in CC.  It's a excerpt from a post (1/11).

    Quote) "I don't know, why you have to apologize. Except for a few posters everyone is welcome here. For a reason they are not." (end Quote)

    I find it offensive, the audacity!

    I don't know if Helen Mirren won, she looked wonderful though, but I went to Bradley Jay at 10p.

    Funny, I picture members of that gang to be, shall we say on the large side,  or sometimes I wonder if some of them are really men pretending to be women.....lol

     I know we're off topic, I'll step out.   Thanks again Dottie

    Sometimes I picture them with beehive hairdos, I don't know why.

     I have to stay out of CC, I'm getting too silly :)

    I guess we've hijacked this thread, is that a bad thing?
