The Ignore Button

At the bottom of every post, you'll find a button called "Ignore". Just hit that, and you will never have to read another post by that particular member ever again (unless you really want to).

Alternatively, you can add someone to your ignore list from the User ACP here: http://forums.school-survival.net/usercp...=editlists
... just start typing their name and it should autofill the rest of the name for you. You can also use this page to remove people from your ignore list.

When someone is on your ignore list, their posts are replaced by a placeholder telling you that there was a post by them there, but it doesn't show you the post unless you click on the 'show post' button. It may be tempting to click that button at first, but don't do it! That will defeat the entire point of using the ignore list.

For example, these are the types of posters I would typically ignore:
people who often post non-constructive criticism, or who are often hostile towards others
people who post "TL;DR" in response to long posts
people who post memes and random nonsense more often than anything that actually adds to the discussion

So, ignoring someone doesn't even necessarily mean you don't like that person, all it means is that you're making it easier for yourself to use the forums the way YOU want, without having to sift through lots of posts you don't care to read.

Soul gets ignored to check the ignore button is working.

If I seem rude to you, please call me on it gently.
