Would it be technically feasible to hide images in the Meme Box which were submitted by ignored users? I'm sure that such a feature would be rather low priority given the upcoming site-refresh, but it would be nice.
I think it's a good idea.
The entire reason you would ignore them is to IGNORE THERE CONTENT.

The images could also be a cause on why you ignored them

Its such incredibly low priority it may never be looked into yeah. If you dislike someone so much you can not even stomach seeing a meme posted by them maybe you need a break from the internet for a bit.
With all due respect, that same reasoning can be used to argue against the entire system we have for ignoring users. As WiiMiiSwitch suggests, the reason that I desire such a feature is not because I personally dislike anyone so greatly that the mere fact that they made a post is enough to send me into paroxysms. Rather, it's because I find that certain individuals' posts tend to make my day a bit less pleasant. That the method of their communication was via image rather than text is immaterial to whether I find the content unpleasant. That being said, I'm still here so clearly it doesn't bother me enough to cause me to abandon the site and/or the internet. I simply saw no harm in making the suggestion.

I get what you mean but the meme box is usually the same garbage meme repeated 10 times in a row with slight variations. It's not like a few memes from someone you ignored can do much worse.

Wait, if someone is ignored, their content still shows up in the Meme Box? That's such a weird exception, almost seems like an oversight.

the meme box is a custom component developed by us so we don't have all the flexibility or the tools that XenForo relies on in their standard core forum code. It's very difficult to account for these subtle user-based settings.

I see. I assumed it might be something to that accord, but had no way of knowing for sure if the Meme Box thread itself was anything special under the hood.

Why don't you just quit being a puss? If your day gets ruined by what some stranger posts on the internet, maybe it's time to think about some self improvement. Sounds like a you problem

Nice stawman, you selfish, apathetic prick.
cry him a river

in other news the meme box is poorly implemented now
so it direct links the image with no name of poster

also the easier solution would be to just not show the posters names in meme box (if they ever fix it)
if your literally that triggered by a persons name/beliefs that trivial miscellaneous content unnerves you to this level, you really need to re-evaluate your personal problems.

or just get yourself a browser plugin that lets you blacklist/hide words and add the persons name

I think you're misunderstanding WHY I requested this feature. I could hardly care less about who posts what. No, it's the content itself that I'd rather not see.

Step away from the internet. Put down the smart phone and nobody gets hurt. (You poor, bubble wrapped fool)

I just find it hilarious pathetic that people are crying about things like this when there are more important things to be worried about. Some big meanie posted meemees that make me angy!
