      You can also check your profile to see the number of times you've been W of the Day (among other things).


    Like how many people are ignoring you. You know the last time I checked it was three. Now it's eight! I'm a little offended.


I have a hard time seeing why people would ignore anybody really. Of course if there is a spammer or just a troll, that's one thing but they are usually dealt with in a quick manner. The only possible real reason I could see to ignore someone is from a political standpoint, and the real easy way to ignore that is to stay away from that particular forum (that's what I do now). I want to know what everybody is saying though, good or bad, in every other forum.

And no, nobody is ignoring me, so I'm not challenging this ignore feature issue because of that.

I also don't use the ignore feature. I can easily move from one post to another without assistance.

I do find it highly amusing that four people are ignoring CRZ. Fascinating.

For the longest time I had 2 people ignoring me, and now it's down to one.

Personally I have two posters on ignore, one that I believe stopped being active a long time ago, and another one who honestly I just got tired of reading. Nothing political or anything, just that person's posts annoyed me. So I figured it was much easier to just black out those posts.

I think I am ignoring one person too - I used to ignore another one, but I got too curious about their posts and finding myself reading it anyway. and several people ignore me. I'd like to know who, so if you're not seeing this, please respond.

I, too, am ignored by one, while ignoring one. I think I know the post I made to get the ignore - it was pretty poorly written.

If someone has been "ignored", but is no longer active, I assume they don't show on your ignore list? Because if I go back to some old banished threads, I inevitably find posts that I'm ignoring.

I also know that pieman has claimed he will NEVER ignore me, just because I spelled "piqued" correctly oh so long ago :-)

I have totally forgotten what I coded regarding ignoring people....mostly because I can't use it as I end up having to read everything posted by everybody (but at least I can ban those truly worthy of me ignoring them). I don't even know if I wrote anything in for people to check their ignore lists, unless you all are using some link I've long since forgotten about. (I had some scripts at one time, but they may not even have survived the server switch...or they're in some directory and I can't remember). Like, for instance, spf says he's ignoring two people but I can go to the database and tell you he's ignoring a lot more people than that.

I stand corrected. Got this board and another confused regarding "ignore".

Oddly enough, I was just checking this as well - I don't think we ever set up a user accessible page for this. I did have a server side script that you gave me at one point, but I can't seem to locate it.

Honestly, this is something that you shouldn't need a tool to manage. If you see an ignored post in a thread, then you are ignoring someone. Otherwise it doesn't really matter anyway, right?

I ran some numbers, and assuming I did the calculations correctly, if you've been here since W of the Day started, there's about 36% chance that you haven't been picked yet. That jives with the 162 people or so that CRZ said (or would have said if he had done the math correctly ;-) ) hadn't been picked out of the 458 posters around at that time.

Here are some registration dates, along with the % chance that you've never been picked as W of the Day, as of Jan. 24, 2007.

Before 2/28/02-36%
11/1/02-50%
2/28/03-55%
2/28/04-69%
2/28/05-79%
2/28/06-90%

I don't remember how to do the math to figure out the odds that you've been picked x number of times, or I'd do that too.

I'd actually come back and post again if only I was W of the Day. :-(
