    No need to be hostile to him. He asked how to use the ignore function, which is a handy feature for a lot of folks around here. The system doesn't allow mods to be ignored, that's all. We have some opinionated mods that will just have be be ignored mentally.

    I respectfully disagree. At least not in his first post, really. Read his first post again. He expressed a negative opinion of two posters...and he did it TWICE, in separate posts. That was uncalled for and it's him you should be addressing but I still love you man. Phuckhimthough.

    So, . . . he is also opinionated and can say what he wants. What else is new?

    There's a PHP edit that can accomplish this but there's a HUGE drawback. Anytime Brett updates the software the edit has to be done again. Of this, I'm sure.

    I'm betting that any user that ignored a staff member would have to go back to the ignore list and re-do it again...which is your second drawback on the user end.

    As a side note, the coders of XF have said (going back to their days at vB) if a member wants to ignore a mod chances are that member needs moderation. I can't say I agree with that, but it's their opinion and they hold that proverbial key to how this works.

    whatever tidefans board did, the right way to do things is likely the opposite.

    Don't confuse Terry's board with the amusing homers at Tidefans. He bailed out of there before anybody else, he is the Moses of the SEC realists. Let my people go.

    I've no idea what that board is doing now on the software end, content wise, etc. If I were to guess, the last time I looked was four years ago. To my knowledge they are still running with vBulletin.

    FWIW, when @BRETT made the switch from vB to Xenforo it was the first time I'd seen it in action. I asked him why he'd made the switch, got a good answer, and started exploring what it could do.

    Sooo, just after spring camp this season I switched from vB to xF and I'm having a blast with the software. It's amazing to me what all can be done. I've joined a few of the ADMIN sites related to this software just to learn more. Bottom line, fun hobby.

    I went a different direction than Brett and decided to build my own styles...and quite frankly, haven't decided which I like better. Like I tell the members, it's always a work in progress. You can take a look here if you care to...just goes to show the flexibility xF has...ignore the front page...I've not even begun to delve into what can be done there.
