Is there an "Ignore" feature?
« on: May 16, 2023, 11:54:11 PM »
Either based on key-words (e.g. maybe I don't want to see anything with "Twelve Months" starting  the day before it's released, until I finish the book and go re-enable) or upon user-name (e.g. I keep getting lured into flame-wars every time I start replying to Posty McPostington), or any other criteria?

Iirc, you can indeed mute specific people at least. You'd have to manually open their post/reply in the thread to see if.(may have been removed? Looking for it rn..)

I do not know if that option is available.
According to the rules of the forum, posts commenting something about a book after it is released should be spoiler-tagged for around a year. But it is true that perhaps not everybody will obey said rules. Traditionally I stay completely away of the forums until I finish reading the books, but if you are not planning to read it soon after the release, I would recommend at least stay away of the DF Spoilers section. I hate to be spoiled. In my long life in the forum my main problem with moderator was about my anger about being spoiled (an admittedly minor thing).

Unless I am very confused, Posty McPostington is a category in the forum, not an user.

There are many horrible sights in the multiverse. Somehow, though, to a soul attuned to the subtle rhythms of a library, there are few worse sights than a hole where a book ought to be. Someone has stolen a book (Terry Pratchett)
