How to hide a user's posts on the forum

Post by Pxtl »

For no reason, not related to anyone in particular, I've decided to provide an informative post.

Spring forums has a feature called "foes". Click on the profile of the user you wish to mark as a "foe". On the profile screen, you can see the "add user as foe" button. Click that, and then confirm.

Foes are users you ignore. You do not see their posts, except as little flat notes that such-and-such a user made a post that you are ignoring, and can choose to view if you like.

Utilize this useful feature for people who you do not expect to ever gain anything from reading their commentary.

The Spring forum now looks much nicer to me.

By the way, if you brag about another user being in your ignore list I may remove the ability of your account to use the ignore list. So use maturely. - Moderation

Moderators and admins, to the best of my knowledge, can't be 'foed'

Once again, for no particular reason, this can probably be un-stickied or moved into a FAQ or something.

You can also ignore PMs by adding a PM rule at http://spring.clan-sy.com/phpbb/ucp.php ... de=options.

Does this mean that you any topics made by a foe are hidden as well?
