Thread Ignore is a god-send. I'm using it pretty frequently, mostly on stuff I simply don't give a shit about. Especially speculation threads about games or movies that are not out yet, because nobody knows anything and it's just one step removed from empty fan-fiction. (Smash speculation threads were the worst, just people saying "Goku?? Rayman???" over and over) Also, with this forum's obsession with Marvel movies and people making threads about completely random shower-thoughts about them or the 10000th argument about Thanos or whatever the fuck, I can just hit Ignore and not have to see them again.
I wish I could set filters to automatically ignore threads on certain keywords.
Also, I wish there was a way to hide threads without having to enter them, would be especially useful for leak threads where I don't want to get spoiled on the movie/game/show and I don't want to risk accidentally clicking on it.
Yup! It's legit one of my favorite features of new Era. Any time I see a thread that is clearly just meant to start shit, or is a topic that I know I'll be tempted to wade into with no hope of coming out with productive conversation, I'll just block it. Speculation threads, threads about how poorly RDR2 plays, the 20th LTTP thread for The Witcher 3, it can all go lol
Yup, the threads that are ban-bait and not for actual discussion, most the depressing news, any of Trump's tweets (they all have their own thread) and comic book/superhero stuff and some television shows I don't care for.
There's a Greasemonkey script that let's you ignore threads by clicking on an X next to it. It will only work on Desktop though (your ignored threads won't transfer to mobile). I had it installed from before there was an official ignore thread option.
