Is There...

Postby vbsydenham » 7 Nov 2018 16:26

...any way to mute/ignore an entire thread?

Or, if I mute a poster, will any threads that they launched be hidden?

I can lock a thread, which means no more posts can be made on it.

I don't think you can mute a person.

Yes you can. In your user control centre you can designate other users as friends or foes. You can then select not to see posts from foes.

I can’t remever if this also mutes entire threads started by that person, but it would be easy to check by trying out the feature and seeing what happens to existing threads.

That only applies to what you personally can see, of course.

Well, yes. That’s what it means to ‘mute’ a user. I don’t think the OP was asking for anything more wide ranging than that.

Thanks for your help.

Can confirm that the "foe" setting mutes an individual but not threads started by that individual 8)

There's an easy way to mute a complete thread. Just don't read it :)
