To be specific, that should open at the first unread post, which is generally "what you want".
This is also (or should be) where it opens when you click a thread anyway. If you’ve read all the posts in a thread it’ll open at the first page

Can we improve the 'Ignore' function so that the person you're ignoring can't see your posts either? Or just an outright block button?
Not sure that's a very good idea.

Whilst it's fine that we should be able to decide who we want to see or not see, being able to make that decision and influence what other members can see or not makes me feel somewhat uncomfortable.

I totally understand why you should feel that way at the moment but I don't think it's where the forum ought to be going.

Fair enough but it is a standard feature on most forums and social media platforms, I don't know that the request itself is that contentious.

I'm not even sure about an 'ignore' button as I've never used one anywhere on the Internet. I have a tick box in my head for ignoring people and that does the job for me. If someone goes really off the rails, I rely on the Forum Administration to press the 'eject' button, or of course ... take them outback, brick wall, .50 cal .... (well you know the rest. :P) 🤪

.50 cal ? I assume sir knows a good brickie, those rounds are going straight through and onwards to infinity

Maybe. But if we get to a situation where we are actively excluding people on here from certain things because we don't like them then I'll certainly opt out of the forum, like I do with other social media.

It's been said many many times before by others but this place is a bit like a local pub. You get on with most people, avoid some and tolerate others but overall we all rub along nicely together without unnecessary rules and nastiness. Only very rarely does the landlord need to come along and bar somebody and it's a better place for that.

Mind you, if Admin started providing booze and snacks, I wouldn't complain.

I think the key thing is not to cross the threads. As an example many years ago I was arguing with Lunar Scorpion on one thread while helping her on another, as long as the threads stay on topic I see no reason to ignore a person.
