Contact EverettB at [email protected] if you have questions about this feature.

Moderator notes regarding this Feature:
In your Control Panel There is a link called Classifieds ignore list.

Everyone on your Classifieds ignore list will:
1. Have their ads blocked when you are browsing the regular classifieds section listings, as well as when searching the classifieds. You do not see their ads.
2. Be excluded from any Classified Alerts you have set up. You do not get alerts about their ads.
3. Not be able to contact you through the "Email this Advertiser" link in your ads. This means you can block certain buyers, if desired. They cannot contact you on your ads.

Add/Remove from your Classifieds ignore list is on the individual user's profile screen.
If you want to ignore a particular user:
Enter one of their ads
Click on their username to enter their profile page
Click on "Add to your classifieds ignore list"
Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


Example:
If I am ignoring EverettB (don't really because he's rad and all his stuff is cheap) because he posts too many Bus parts ads, none of his ads appear when I am browsing the Parts - Type 2/Bus - 1949-67 category.

They will also not appear when you perform a Classifieds search.

If I have an alert set up to get every ad in above category emailed to me, I will not get any emails for ads posted by EverettB

All ads will still appear when viewing the following quick links:
All New Ads
All Recent Ads

* Note that when browsing a particular category, it may say, for example, there are 3000 ads in the category.
If you are ignoring one or more users, the ad count is not adjusted and may seem incorrect as it will still state there are 3000 ads.
Performing a search will report the correct number of ads.

=============================================

Original post:
I've had this thought for a while now - would it be possible to have separate ignore functions for the classifieds and forums? Hear me out - there is a local seller who lists hundreds of ads in the classifieds and when I do a local search, I want to exclude his ads for obvious reasons. However, by ignoring him, he is also not allowed to PM me. I know him personally and don't want to block his PMs (I don't dislike the guy or anything).

I think this would work well.
Ignore a person in the forum, but not in the classifieds.

Or vice-versa, which is what I'd like to do.

I'd be interested in having this feature as well, since there are some people whose ads I really don't want to see when I am searching for stuff in AL, but I don't want to ignore them in the forums....

Ok, it's up.

To start out with, I added everyone who is in your ignore list into your Classifieds Ignore list so you may want to add/remove people.

Everything is in your Control Panel There is a new link there called Classifieds ignore list.

Add/Remove from your Classifieds ignore list is on the individual user's profile screen, same as the old ignore.

The Forums ignore won't let you ignore moderators or admins. You can ignore their ads in the Classifieds.

Damn, Everett...you rock.

I fully expected to have to write an envisioning document and then have the idea reviewed by the Project Steering committee, and finally (if approved) have resources and a PM assigned only to have the project eventually canceled. Damn, I need to get out of the corporatosphere. Very Happy

Yes, it's only for searches, not the general listings.

A couple days ago I added:
Anyone on the classifieds ignore list cannot contact you through the "Email this Advertiser" link in your ads.

This means you can block certain buyers, if desired.

Now: Everyone on your Classifieds ignore list will now be excluded from any email Alerts you receive.

Example:
If I am ignoring EverettB and have an alert set up to receive all ads from the Parts - Type 2/Bus - 1949-67 category, I will not get an email for any new ads posted by EverettB in that category.

Wow. I never used this before but as of lately I got sick of seeing(I wont use the company's name) postings for every new item in thier stock. It made classifieds look like a parts catalog. Thanks so much Ev!
