You have to post the thread first. Then:
Ignore forum has been a super duper handy feature and I've used it since the redesign but I still notice some stuff from the Etectera part of the site ends up in the latest threads section even when I have the board ignored for the sake of blocking out political stuff. I'm curious if maybe the ignore feature could be tweaked to block out certain threads/boards from showing up on the sidebar for folks who have said parts ignored for the sake of their sanity or just because they're sick of a thread blowing up. I know the search bar can also find ignored stuff but that's not really in-your-face like the front page and the latest thread sections, so it would be a nice addition unless I'm not finding the feature already
To add to all of the above, why are entire forums/subforums no longer able to be ignored? I get that people might do this by accident and panic when the whole board seems to have disappeared, but you just implemented a confirmation button. I've had all of EtcetEra on ignore since the launch of 2.0 and am profoundly annoyed that it has been forced back on me again, with no one-click recourse to make it vanish.The ignore thread feature is by far the best addition to the site, but why is it becoming more cumbersome to use? On Reddit, it is possible to ignore a thread without entering it, but here, not only are we required to enter the thread, it now requires an extra confirmation to ignore it. This is unnecessary added work, especially on mobile where it has to load each of these steps.
Hopefully one day we can activate the ignore thread function with our thought power alone. Until then, at least revert it back to how it originally was please.
I'll reiterate on this issue, I had etc and etc hangouts ignored however now they have become visible again and no way of actually ignoring them properly.
Yes, thanks. I have a mirror image of that problem, equally frustrating. I found the bug report thread:
This X 1000%. Filtering out political nonsense is a good thing for many people’s anxiety and the option was super useful. Having it gone now is utterly stupid and I don’t know why it was removed but they need to bring it back pronto.To add to all of the above, why are entire forums/subforums no longer able to be ignored?

Please restore at least an option to auto-confirm, and also the ability to ignore boards. You might think, "Who would ever use this?" but believe me, people have perfectly good reasons to use this.
It would be great if we could get a feature like this (a la Twitter's "muted words"). It is very tiring and disappointing to keep smashing the Ignore button on a particular thread only to have to see a similar one pop up the very next day.
Email would be overkill. I think NeoGAF has push notifications and it seems like a neat feature so it'd be great to have it here too.
I would be happy to have a quick "ignore thread" shortcut on the forum page so that I can quickly cut out all of the MCU and "how to be a human being" threads on etcera without having to visit the individual thread itself to toggle the ignore. Maybe I've missed a good way to do this? And/or, be more aggressive about moving large OTs to Hangouts and create a separate "how to be a human" forum, I suppose.
