Don't get upset enough to use a ignore list myself, manual ignorance is easy enough. ;D

Besides some good idea's can come from people even if not liked, dammed if I'm going to miss out on good idea's by being petty.

I've mentioned it before but I think we really need an "Ignore" feature that blocks the posts of those you (any given user) stick on a given list.

Since the upgrade it does - meet the ignore list - http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php?action=profile;area=lists;sa=ignore (Profile - Edit Profile - Buddy/Ignore List - Ignore List)



Isn't the purpose of an ignore list to block PMs and e-mails from those one puts on the list rather than blocking their thread posts?

It ignores emails and PMs but also ignores posts. Any post by someone you are ignoring is hidden, though you can see it exists, and you can click on it to read it if you want to.

Some people have asked for not to even see the post of someone they are ignoring. I don't think this is possible with SMF at present.

Well as a mod I have to read all posts. Mind you if I wasn't I doubt I'd use an ignore feature, very little winds me up and I'd simply skip that particular persons post as I scanned through. As said earlier sometimes "out of the mouths of babes"

That's a (moderators only) indication there is an unapproved post in that forum. Clicking on the exclamation mark takes you to the post approval page.

Well, it's been almost three weeks since the last comment, and almost five since the upgrade. How's everything going? Everybody okay?

It's a little petty, but there still isn't a 'total views' feature, which was present in the old site, this new site only has current viewing figures, sorry to be a pain in the proverbial  ;D

I don't actually understand what you are asking for. Topics have a "total views" count. I don't believe posts have a view count.

Not sure how to explain what I get on my cell phone, but for the home page I get everything on the left of the home page up to the left edge of the logo. But when I try to resize the view it doesn't expand and it won't move over so I can view the other side of the home page. So the 'logout' button doesn't appear.

I have an LG3 which is android powered if that helps

Everything works very well for me.   :thumbsup:
Compared with before I appreciate that there is also at the bottom a series of clickable words (like this)

 What if »General Modelling Forum »General Modeling topics »

so I can get back up a directory etc. instead of having to return to the page top.
