    Probably at least once a week, the moderators are asked to delete a user or censor all their posts. At least an equal amount of time, we are asked to keep VFRWorld free and open to all. What is one to do? If you would prefer not to see posts from a certain user, you can take these steps and not have to view their posts.

    Step 1. Click settings at the top right of most any VFRWorld window. (see pic)

    [​IMG]

    Step 2. About halfway down on the left under the heading of my settings, you'll see "Edit Ignore List". Click "Edit Ignore List". (see pic)

    [​IMG]

    3. In the box where it says "Ignore List" is a text box for you to type the user name. The forum will try and guess the name as you type it if you have trouble with spelling. type in the user you would like to ignore and click "Okay". (see pic)

    [​IMG]

    4. On the next page, you should see your ignore list box with the user's name that you just added and a checkmark beside it. (see pic)

    [​IMG]

    Step 5. Take a deep breath and relax. It's just the internet.

    What if the person is not really "annoying" so much as "too cool" or "so right" that I just can't stand it? Does the procedure remain the same?

    Sorry, I really couldn't help it. Feel free to delete if necessary.....

    And 02 stole my idea - I'm just sayin

    Tink is still on this forum??? I've had him on "ignore" for so long... I liked the reputation indicators under your user name. That was here during one of the upgrades last year. I can see how that could get abused though...

    ^^^^++++ 34468 Randy pisses me off often. Specially when he gets on chat at 03:00 instead of going to bed.

    BTW, Can anyone tell me what the "downloads" and "uploads" under our avator means. Just what have I up loaded and down loaded?

    Porn, I suspect.

    How about if you try to ignore someone, you get permanently and immediately banned for being such a sissy.

    But really??? People actually need to ignore someone else? Are folks that thin skinned around here?

    I put myself on my ignore list and now I can't find myself. Apparently I'm now invisible. This should be fun.

    If you fear you are lost Knife, I saw you just yesterday. You were running down the rail road tracks with no clothes on in the freezing cold. I was going to stop you but then thought....Hmmmmm...is that a good idea?

    Im gonna ignore the shit outta Reggie.

    Then Im gonna start alphabetically and ignore each and every one of you one at time, none of this group ignoring, you are ALL going to get my individual ignore

    Then when Im done here I will proceed to ignore the entire damn internet.

    And if youre ignoring me right now, screw you, besides you wont even know it, because youre ignoring me.

    If youre my friend, I'll just ignore you a little bit, sort of in my spare time.
