    Make it so that when you ignore somebody, none of their posts show up at all.
    Right now you can still see that they posted and choose to unhide it, that's a little too tempting.
    Make it so when somebody is on your ignore list, they don't even appear to exist?
    The quick reply box too, of course.

    Addition: Make it so a blocked user can't post in any of your threads as well?

    I agree.
    I would be tempted to see what they posted. Ignored members should appear not to exist whenever they post or make a new topic.
    Edit: On second thought, you should be able to see a topic they post as long as it's in the 'GBAtemp Magazine' and 'GBAtemp Network Discussions' section.

    I have no-one on my ignore list (partly because no-one annoys me enough and partly because I want to have the sense of completeness), but I agree with this too. If I did need to ignore someone I would rather miss the post entirely than be tempted because it reminds me that it's there.

    I agree that having the option to unhide posts kind of makes the ignore function a little redundant. But you could also argue that the fact that other people can quote an ignored post, that you can then see no matter what you do makes it even more redundant. Ignoring someone is 90% down to you I guess, it would be very difficult for a system to be implemented that eliminates all traces of an ignored user completely.

    Er, simply add a check before making each post display box in a page of a thread to see if the originating author is on the viewer's ignore list, and if so simply don't display that box at all (which is less computationally expensive then displaying it with an unhide option since the check for ignore list is already there).

    It seems a tad bit over complicated and seems like something that couldn't work since that would require also blocking quotes to that person's posts.
    I think it's just easier to ignore a person by just down right avoiding their posts completely.

    The current system doesn't block their quotes either.

    This suggestion is less complicated than the current one.

    EDIT: Made an addition. All these checks for rights already exist in the system, I simply suggest changing what they do when a "no" is found.

    Yes, great idea. Let's all ignore Rydian and his many sexual deviant threads.

    I'm all for banishing that crap on the forums, but this topic isn't the place to make stabs at Rydian or his sexuality (if there really is ever a place) Take it to PM if you have a problem with him.

    Anyway, This is an awesome idea and its the way the ignore system works on most forums I have been to.

    My post probably came across differently than it was intended.

    Personally I don't feel the need to ignore anyone's posts. I don't have an issue with Rydian, I just found it ironic that Rydian suggested upgrading the Ignore list given his many 'threads'. I simply tire of the 'picture of my balls/wood/chest etc etc ' type threads. Exception for Toni P of course.

    I believe the way the ignore list works now, is the best way.

    You know it's really annoying when people blame me for threads I didn't make.

    EDIT: Or even post in.

    EDIT2: Typo.

    Well people notice you. Sometimes I see a thread and think, that's gotta be Rydian.

    For example http://gbatemp.net/t257882-sticky-temper-breasts

    I'm talking about how people blame me for stuff I didn't make.

    "Oh, Rydian made this one thread so all the others must be his fault as well."

    Fuck no.
