mods - can the website software be updated?

Post by emordnilap »

As discussed elsewhere, the ability to ignore someone's posts on PS would be valuable and I believe updated software may provide this facility. Is this true and, if so, can you go about having it updated?

It takes literally a second or two to scan a post.

Try it Snail - deliberately ignore all posts for a month or two by a prolific poster and see how it is.

At the end of the day, E, so long as its implementation does not affect other users, it doesn't really matter what the results of a poll are. All that matters is that the people who have voted "yes" are able/willing to share the financial burden of whatever such an additional function might cost and/or share the managerial burden of implementing it.

Aye. And most PS polls are unrepresentative anyway. :lol:
