Nice feature, thanks.

Never tempted to use this until now. Thanks!

Haha, this is implying something funnier than what you actually meant.

Some boards have a feature where if you ignore someone, you are automatically placed on their ignore list too. That would take care of both your requests. There are some people here who seem quite happy to continually reply to your posts despite placing them on ignore though.

I'd like to request the ability to see who individuals are ignoring and, more importantly, who's ignoring you.

A board I post on has this (as well as a top-10 ignored list, haha.) It's surprisingly useful. For one you don't quote and reply to someone you know is ignoring you. You can also ignore them back if you want, since you'll never be able to interact with them, anyway.

Thank you Frans!

Greasemonkey worked well, but it's nice to have a portable solution

Thanks man!

Does it include this line?

<font size="2" face="Arial"><a href="board.pl?action=ignore&user=3937" target="_self">Ignore this user</a></font>

That same URL shows me the "Ignore this user" link below the search form in Firefox.

Edit: that's FF 2.0 and 3.5, but not 3.0. I'm also missing the link in other browsers. Looking into it...
Doh, in the other browsers I wasn't logged in.

Okay, the Ignore link is only shown if you have checked the Remember Me box when submitting a post -- this sets the bearkey-pw cookie with your email/pwd, and that is necessary to use the Ignore feature, otherwise it doesn't know who you are and wouldn't be able to store an ignored user entry for your account.

The catch is that there is another cookie called auto-login with the same values, which is used by the User Settings login. This is a historical effect of Furn building the user stuff and Bagpuss the forums. So if you have both cookies defined to your user account, it should work.

Not sure why you're putting in those dummy IMG tags.

Maybe, but your browser certainly is... take a look in that page's source code. Does it include this line?

<font size="2" face="Arial"><a href="board.pl?action=ignore&user=3937" target="_self">Ignore this user</a></font>

That's still not very exact -- if you're looking on your own User Info page, it is indeed not present as noted in my first post. On other profile pages the link stands out pretty well below the search form.

A few people have already entered ignores, so it definitely works.

Note: I needed to make a small tweak to the database table holding the ignores, but the few entries that may have been in there were wiped (sorry, forgot to check). So feel free to re-apply them.

Edit: Yes Verno, that's the thing I had to fix.

Appreciate the feature addition Frans, sorry to also add a bug report.

Database error executing insert into board_ignores (id, ignoreid) values (51617, 22897): Duplicate entry '51617' for key 'PRIMARY'

Got that trying to ignore user space_captain.
