ignore button

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

ignore button

What about an ignore button.
Rather then limiting the number of post or banning user who post too much (in the opinion of the mod) an ignore button would be a good solution.

Each user can then "ban" who ever he likes and you keep the ban option for more serious breach of etiquette

^ I haven't checked the CEO profile config, but I'd be surprised if the Foe list function isn't available. Gives you exactly what your asking for. Moving on...

I saw that in the control panel > friends or foe.

Me thinks you're right, although I've never used that function in my entire life...

Ok did not knew about this.
So putting someone on the foe categories make him/her invisible to the user ? If this is the case this is equivalent to an ignore button.
If this is the case why the mode on KH440 did not suggest to use this function if people are bother by the number of type of intervention of certain poster. That what it is for.
Add adding him/her as a friend does what ? You receive notification when a new post/topic is created ?

The problem is that it interrupts the flow of the thread.

Better first to try and find common ground, then when that fails to report the user, and if they disagree with you, learn to live with that user/change your viewpoint.

Otherwise your foe changes the topic of the thread, and you are unaware of it.

Tomorrow I'd like a double vodka and mango juice. Thanks for the offer.

As far as I know, it just adds then to a list on the side of your screen and tells you which of your friends are online. It also makes it easy to choose a friend to PM when you're at the messages screen.

It sends a PM to everyone saying "Get this...Poster X wants to be electronic 'friends' with another dude on this forum!!! How GAY is that ?? That's man-tastic."

What a forum really needs is a button that sends a painful electric shock to the keyboard of someone you don't like.
