I’ve been asked about Ignore list feature.
There is none [There is now - see below]. Actually we have “Mute” feature. You can mute categories, topics and even users.
Muted means that any update won’t trigger any notifications for you (and it also won’t be shown on /latest). But you will still see the content if you go straight to the category or topic from the topic list.
I know that there are Ignore lists on other software platforms, but this one shares different approach and philosophy. We don’t want to divide community into separate “camps” which ignore each other. We want united community that is open and tolerant especially towards new users. I mean if there is some user that is just pain in the ass and can’t behave (argues ad hominem or attacks others), we don’t want him to be part of the community in the first place.
So I can recommend if you feel offended or insulted by another’s post or messages, use flagging feature. OG staff will review it and act accordingly. Offender will be warned and after multiple warnings can be even banned. There are also automatic filters in place so if there are enough senior members which will flag the post system will hide it even without any staff manual action.
There is now Ignore feature!
