Ignore option for threads

Helloz!

I know that there is little to nothing you guys can do about the forums and while the Vanilla-team is known to be rather supportive, they seemed to have ignored previous input so far.

I would still like to drop this here and suggest an option to ignore topics. Not because i'm a grumpy old codger and get mean all the time, but sometimes various topics i'm not interested in stay afloat in "recent discussions" forever and just don't want to leave the first page.
We have bookmarks (does anybody use that feature?) to keep track of topics, so why not ignore some as well? At least an option to untag them, so that i don't see that 198 people have answered since i accidently clicked a topic weeks ago.

Ok, that was that.

Then on a sidenote i'd like to say that i find it too bad that this section has indeed come down to "SITE suggestions" only.
Since the switch to the new forum, it doesn't really apply to anything but the mainpage anymore.
Many people have suggested and are waiting for colored text, underline, paragraphs getting fixed (arrghh!!), 60sec edit timer since the forum has launched and nothing ever happened.
While i suppose that people spend way more time on the forums than on the mainpage and have to fiddle with bugs and inconvience on a daily basis here, it seems that we can only suggest stuff for the mainsite -that will then be considered when the "new website" launches.(running gag alert!)


That being said, i'd like to add that i love everybody in this forum right now and in this very moment!

    Ignore topics would be ideal.. would LOVE to see that.... good suggestion.

    Colored text and underlines and such, would be nice to have those features back.

    I don't love everybody on this forum right now also.. I think loving everybody in this forum is a bad site suggestion.  I will have an opt in to love @Volgore .. if only in this thread and in this particular moment.

    Good suggestions. I lol'd at the running gag alert.

    The bookmarks feature is partially broken for me. I have cleared all my bookmarks and the list is empty but it says I still have some topics booked. I think those might have been locked, deleted, or sunk topics.

    Would love an ignore topic feature.

    Would also love better text formatting on the page - colored text, etc.

    I don't visit the front page much at the moment because it's such a bollocks of information. I'm also waiting for the new site.

    Finally, as a grumpy old curmudgeon I want to love everyone, but I'm working on trying not to be hateful to everyone as a start.

    So, to be clear, what you're asking for is the ability to hide topics that appear in the feed? I don't think we can do this, but I will ask.

    Anything to do with the functionality of the editor is basically out of our hands. Whatever its got is all we have unless Vanilla updates the editor. What is the 60-second edit timer issue you're referring to?

    Well hide topics or maybe just hide topics started by people already on our ignore list. Could nip a lot of the work the forum mods have to do in the bud.

    As to colored text and such I just do that stuff manually in the html editor portion of making a post, though I'm a little puzzled Vanilla doesn't have a plugin to do that for you.

    "l heard joke once: Man goes to doctor, says he's depressed. Life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in threatening world. Doctor says, "Treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go see him. That should pick you up.''
    Man bursts into tears. ''But doctor,... '' he says. ''l am Pagliacci.'' Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. . .Curtains."

    Hi Mike!

    Every topic has this little star to bookmark it, while left next to it is an icon for "options" that opens a small menu which only contains "dismiss".
    I was thinking of another option in here to hide a topic.



    A timer of ~60 secs to edit your post was meant in the way that after posting a comment the user has 60 seconds to edit it without getting the red bar "Post edited by XYZ on May 30" underneath.

    I case of typos, paragraph or general formating issues, i think one minute of free editing would be nice.
