How to ignore topics?

Hi,

I check what new has been posted by using New.
Frequently, I get huge list of topics and many of them are threads which I'm not interested in, and I have seen them previously.
So, I consider it as a noise. It would be good to have a feature to cancel such noise.

The forum has Subscribe to this topic feature.
Is there similar but Ignore this topic, so it makes posts under ignored topic not displayed in New listing?

EDIT: Clarified, added missing "not".

Re: How to ignore topics?

I guess my request belongs to FluxBB forum then: "Ignore this topic" feature.

Re: How to ignore topics?

If you want to avoid discussions about e.g. social aspects of ignored topics, post the request in their bug tracker: http://fluxbb.org/development/core/tickets/

Re: How to ignore topics?

Wouldn't you have to individually go into each topic to mark them "ignored"? Seems like 2 additional clicks + a lot of scrolling (given that the Subscribe and the proposed Ignore links are at the bottom of the thread)


I would just rather skip clicking on the topic if the title doesn't interest me that much.

There's no such thing as a stupid question, but there sure are a lot of inquisitive idiots !

Re: How to ignore topics?

I resorted to ignoring the topics I've already clicked on - firefox marks visited urls as gray as opposed to non-visited blue ones.
That meant I had to click every topic to "mark it visited" and subscribe to the ones I wanted to follow.

It would be nice to have a filter that does it automatically but now I'm using 'new threads' rss feed instead the New forum listing so I don't care too much about it.

The problem is, you will have to repeat the "visual filtering and skipping" every time new post arrives to such thread you want to ignore. Anyway, let's see what FluxBB say.

YES: max out the "display items per page" (roughly translated) so you didn't have 20+ pages to read. Then sledge down that list, interesting topics - right-click->new-tab - and you're all set for super-duper speed-reading.

cheers

Or just use pentadactyl and g-;-b;list-of-numbers-of-interesting-topics

Or if you're a mouse sort of a person, middle-click is MUCH better than right-click->new-tab
