    I just noticed when you ignore someone, it removes all threads they created from view as well.

    So... the only way to access these threads is to un-ignore the person. I think
    But what If I want to see the thread but not the one who made it?

    Then the whole idea behind "ignore" is gone right ;).
    If I want to read this thread, but I do not want to read your posts... that would be not logic at all.

    Pls :lol:

    As much as I have clear reasons for ignoring people, I might actually wish to see a thread if its interesting for whatever reason.

    There might be posts by other people in that thread that you would like to read though.

    :P let me put it this way:

    You break up with your girlfriend, but still want to... oh wait -_- bad example.

    I think the system is not build for that kind of partial ignore. However, I still don't see how you would be able to even see the thread of a person if you ignore them.
    What could be implanted is an option: hide the posts of the user, and show a button with show comment (so you can see the threads but their posts are "hidden")

    That's already sort of how it works. If you ignore people, there's a button at the bottom of the page that says "unhide ignored posts".

    Oh shit, I found it.
    There is actually a one for threads but its so neatly tucked away and hardly noticeable at the bottom of the page. Maybe its so hard to notice because im on the dark theme master race but without actually looking for it you'd never notice. :mellow:


    Daymn, well.
    uhh thanks Arras ^_^

    Wait wat. I didn't know that, I thought there only was one for posts when you're already in a thread :O

    I'm pretty sure it only appears when there's a thread that's hidden though. When I checked the button is not there. But yeah the one for posts in pretty much the same location.
