Could somebody please enlighten me on the purpose and scope of Buddy / Ignore Lists?
I am sure you could guess what it is, but since I never used before and don't wish to waste time experimenting, would appreciate more info.
Thanks.

If you add someone to your Ignore list, you will not see any posts or receive any private messages from them.

Adding someone to your buddy list is sort of like an address book. It's just easier access to people you want to search on or contact.

If someone from the ignore list responds to your thread, what happens?

You won't see the response, but everyone else will. You will see when people quote the ignored person's response, though.

From the FAQ (http://msgboard.alphasoftware.com/alphaforum/faq.php)


The buddy list is used to keep track of the friends you have made on this forum. By going to your "Open Buddy List" in "Quick Links" menu of the navbar, you'll be able to see which of your friends are currently online and send them a private message. Adding people to your buddy list also allows you to send private messages to multiple forum members at the same time. You may add any member of the forums to your buddy list by viewing their profile or by going to "Buddy / Ignore Lists" in your "User CP".

Ignore lists are used for those people whose messages you wish not to read. By adding someone to your ignore list, those messages posted by these individuals will be hidden when you read a thread.

Thanks Aaron. I did look in the FAQ before posting, but couldn't find the answer.
