    Ignoring Threads:
    This was a much requested feature from the DLP Uservoice, so thanks to all who suggested it.

    You now have an option to hide offending threads, rendering them invisible as you browse. You'll still get notifications if you're quoted or mentioned within the thread, but it'll never again turn up to plague you in thread displays.
    How to Use:
    Ignoring Threads:

    To ignore a thread, click the dropdown box called Thread Tools (found at the top of any thread), and click 'Ignore this Thread'.

    Restoring Threads:

    If you want to remove a thread from your ignore list, or would like to simply marvel at how many theads you're ignoring, head on over to your User CP and you'll find the options for Ignored Threads under Settings & Options. Click 'Stop Ignoring This Thread' to see it again.

    Oh man, that is amazing.

    I'm gonna go test this now, so I guess no need to answer, but I'm hoping that this also works for those who browse using the "New Posts" function.

    Thank for continuing to improve the forum. Here I thought we'd already hit the top.

    Ok, that's pretty awesome.

    Is it possible to ignore entire subforums, though? I'd love to ignore little Italy and the Naruto subforum if possible.

    (Yes yes, I know, no matter what you do, it's never good enough :p)

    No more anime threads!

    DLP forum is best forum on Interwebz. This is a hard fact.

    No, but you've given me a better idea: the ability to customise what turns up for you in 'New Posts'.

    I'll have a think about that one.

    I think Reddit does a pretty good job of that with it's filtering system. Perhaps an idea can be taken from that.

    Bring back the introductions subforum?

    Jokes aside, I'd like a theme that plays well on mobile.

    If you want to suggest stuff and not have it be lost to the gormless void, stick it in the DLP Uservoice. You'll find a link to said uservoice at the bottom of every page under Idea? Feedback?

    Perhaps I missed it, but any chance to simply ignore an entire forum section, or subforum(as per your quote showing Little Italy earlier in this thread)?

    Drome simply had a thread ignored, and if it's the most recent updated it shows that message.

    If you browse by new post, you can at least ignore the current game/sign-up thread in Little Italy to cut back on the flooding.

    (It also lets me get rid of anime, league of legends, and some politics threads, so, I approve of this feature)

    It's good to know I won't be the only person using this feature expressly for that purposed.
