So I'll start this off by saying that this may not be possible, but I'm wondering if there is a way to upgrade the ignore system here at CowboysZone. This is a two parter, but they are related enough that I figured it'd be best to keep it in one post. Request 1: I am a frequent user of the chat during games. While on balance, it's worth it by far and a lot of fun, I do find it necessary to put some users on ignore in chat - especially when they are consistently and repetitively annoying. However, I would prefer to be able to hide them from the chat without also hiding all their posts. It can be true that a poster can be incessantly annoying during chat, yet still have worthwhile posts from time to time. Is there any way to separate these two ignore functions (as it was with the old system)? Request 2: This one is a little more out there and I don't know if it's even possible. I have not seen this feature elsewhere, but I think it would be a boon to everyone. Is there a way to "rate" other posters and have that rating saved, but at the same time have it be personalized to each of us and private? I'm not looking for a score rating that is aggregated and listed under the avatar for all for see, but rather a personal 1-5 star scale that reminds me of who it is I'm reading. I can see how a public badge system would have a negative effect. This data would be attached to my profile (as my current ignore list is) rather than the board as a whole. Sure we have our regular posters we all recognize, but there are dozens of folks you post less frequently. I would be a big positive to be able recognize their past habits at a glance; saving time and reducing groans and eyerolls. At the same time, it's less punitive than an outright ignore. The rating would show up under the avatar for me, but everyone's would be different based on their own perspectives. My goal here is simply to save a little time when reading through posts. I can't tell you how many times I've read posts and gone through them only to realize "Oh yeah, this guy doesn't know what they are talking about." or , "Hmm, I agree with this guy a lot" I'd call it a combo "soft ignore / best poster" system. Thoughts?
