THE ANFIELD NOISE

How to Ignore Posters

I appreciate for some users interactions can become difficult. Especially as some topics grown and get more heated. We have a few different options here on TAN.

Lets say you are getting into a heated say in the Brexit thread :wink:

The first thing I would suggest it muting notification on that thread.

If its a specific user, you just want a break from then try muting notifications. This can be done in your profile. This way you will not be alerted if they quote or mention you.

If you are so annoying that you dont even want to read their posts, you can click on ignore

As you see you can set a date and time. I would suggest in first instance ignore someone for a week.

Please note some functions become activated once you reach a certain membership level eg 100 posts

Not sure where the ignore function would be for me. It might be my luddite technical ability or user level or…dunno?

I don’t have the same interface as in your screenshots.

One aspect I did find frustrating from TIA is that when you ignored a poster it would hide whole threads if they were the OP. That was slightly annoying if they’d happen to have started a rumour thread, for example. I’m intrigued to see how it operates here.

“If you are so annoying that you dont even want to read their posts, you can click on ignore”

What if they are annoying?

I think you have to post a minimum number of times to get the ability to ignore people.

I’m sure you’ll soon make it :wink:

Hopefully not 100! Don’t want to spam the place :wink:
