Ok, to actually help the op, there’s two ways to put someone on ignore:
- Through their post history.
a. Left click on their name above a post.
b. Click on “View Activity”.
c. Click on “Normal”.
d. Select “Muted” or “Ignored”.
- Through your profile.
a. Left-click on your portrait in the forums.
b. Click on your name.
c. Click on “Preferences”.
d. Click on “Users”.
e. Click on “Add…” if needed.
f. Start typing the offender’s name into the box. It should pull up a list of suggestions with their realm and forum icon to help you select the correct person.
Unfortunately, if someone has their profile hidden, then you have to use the second method. Either way, you’re given the option to choose how long to mute/ignore the person for. Unfortunately, neither option will automatically hide any threads that person creates, but it will automatically hide their posts in a thread.
Mute: Suppress all notifications and PMs from these users.
Ignore: Suppress all posts, notifications, and PMs from these users.
