    I'd personally find this most useful on the "Forums" page to be honest. That's where you can only see one latest thread per forum, so it makes it impossible to ignore. When a thread is listed among several, it's easy to ignore.

    New Post first? Is it for mobile? I would like it last on the desktop. Much easier to click down the middle of the page.

    Will probably get used to it in a few years :(

    I never believed in it either because it's weird seeing people seemingly talking to themselves.

    But a certain opposition poster drove me there and it's one of the best things I've have done..

    Would be great if you could add an option to not hide threads made by an ignored member, as you can potentially miss a lot of chat just because of who the thread starter is.

    Not sure how possible it is.

    I've been ignoring most of the football forums without any help for about a decade now.

    Huh?

    The football forums have been a silly place since. Erm? Well? Forever.

    Although the night that Raoul and I banned over 100 scourers after they played up in the football forums was a highlight.

    Finally, an answer to the moronic 'We'll never win the league without X star player' threads.

    Came in to say this. Those three options, when you use your phone, are the only options you see without having to go to a drop down menu. None of those 3 options are tabs I would ever use so it is a really inefficient use of real estate. I would use watched threads or new posts which were both there before. Quite inconvenient.

    I keep hitting ignore forums instead of new posts. Thus wasting 2 seconds of scrolling time. Simply not good enough, and I blame Damien

    Ok I've moved the "Threads you ignore" and "Forums you ignore" links to the account drop down menu.

    The New Posts link is now visible again on mobile.

    Doesn't seem to work for me. I selected all three option to ignore the Brexit thread but I can still see it right below this one.

    That's not foolproof though, i've got all my notifications switched on, and i'm not that sad i'd ever ignore anybody, but yet I still stumble upon posts sometimes weeks later where posters have replied to one of my posts but I haven't been notified, and it looks as though i've ignored them.

    Shit he's not going to reply. lol

    Awesome, I wanted this feature so much! Would be more useful if it worked on the thread listings on the homepage too.
