So, in regard to the fact this site has an ignore list, I've come to notice that trying to add literally anyone who is either a moderator or admin to said list doesn't work.

I get the reasoning behind it, but also... what if you simply want someone ignored who happens to be a mod? You should be allowed to; especially given the high number of moderators as is, it would be a nice feature.
Not liking someone has no relevance to their status on the forum, I'd think.

It's for a reason; if a moderator happens to post an important message into a thread, either or give a specific warning to you or a general warning, then it has to be visible. Ignoring that specific mod won't do. I don't remember off-hand whether ignore lists blocks PMs but you can't do that for obvious reasons, too.

If you have an issue with a moderator, you should take it up with the administrative team, anyway.

Not an 'issue' that needs reporting, just literally I don't like this person, care what they have to say, etc, so I just want to ignore them.

I thought the former was why the report button exists.

Because a moderator's duties pretty much cover posting Important Messages in threads whenever necessary, actually placing them on the ignore list would be rather counterproductive.

A better feature, actually would be to hide topics of your choosing. Same way you can sub to them, you can ignore them too.

I can think of a few grating topics right now I'd love to make invisible to me moreso than a user.

Staff cannot be blocked because private messaging would be disabled the user who blocked the staff member and vice-versa if that happened. Private messaging is important for us because we use it to hand down verbal warnings, FYIs, infractions, and any other staff action needed.

If you are having an issue with a moderator that's causing you to want to ignore them, then please by all means speak up to the higher staff in private message.

I think in this case people can just literally ignore the threads themselves without needed of a new feature. If you don't click on it, you can't really see what's going on in it anyway, and so you're effectively ignoring it already, yes? Most threads eventually get lost to the void anyway, so it'll be out of one's sight in time.

Mhmmm, easiest thing to do is just to skim over posts of ppl you don't care to see. Worked for a lot of us for some years. o:
