Greetings, Orbinauts.

The forums now provide you the ability to ignore things. Don't want to see a particular thread in the recent feed? Ignore it! Don't want to see anything from an entire forum? Ignore it!

You can ignore a forum from the forum view page, by pressing "Ignore forum":

An individual thread will now have an ignore button in the same position:

And you can ignore a particular user with the button in their profile:

What's that? You ignored something by accident, or you've changed your mind and you want to see it again? Okay:

https://www.orbiter-forum.com/account/ignored will list all the content you're ignoring, and give you an option to unignore it:

Either "Unignore all" or use the dustbin icon on the item you don't want to ignore any more:

Happy ignoring!

Will users get informed somehow when someone ignored them?

If several people ignore you, you might think about what you've posted and hopefully be a better poster afterwards.
...I know that it's wishfull thinking and trolls wouldn't change, but hey we have a nice community here so let's keep it that way!

I don't believe this is a feature, no. This is intended for quietly curating your own forum experience, not making passive-aggressive statements about the quality of others' content :p
