Thread Ignore

Do we have the ability here to ignore a thread?

For example, I'm reading through the 5th page of a 20 page thread on Northwest Upgrade Policies, and decide I never want to read or see this thread again, I click ignore thread, and it never shows up again (for me).

That way I can easily declutter the forums for myself, so that when I check in, its easy to tell whats going on, changed, updated, etc - without being drowned in a bunch of threads I am uninterested in.

If we do not already have such a capability, I would like to suggest that we implement one.

Thanks in advance,
keep up the great work ft!

There has been some discussion on this topic in this thread.

See in particular Randy Petersen's comments in the thread.

I haven't really put it through much testing, but there's a Greasemonkey script that can help accomplish this.

There's also a Firefox add-on that might work.

If these work, then it's handled on your PC without putting a burden on the FT servers. These would only be useful in Firefox, of course.

If you use the Add-on, I don't think that you would need the Greasemonkey script.

I tried this and so far it seems to work. When you first install it, it adds a large bar across the bottom of the screen. But this is easy to remove under "options".

PC.

But oddly enough, the "ignore thread" feature has stopped working for me. When I try to use it, I get an error message saying "No thread to ignore" which of course is patently false.

So, I'm out of answers for now.

That really would make things easier to read here too. I have a hard time keeping track of what I have read and what I haven't as there are soo many forums/boards/threads on here that i have no interest in.
