    Is there a way to place an entire forum on ignore? Example; the conservation forum.

    It's certainly not taking the path I imagined it would. For example, the new member who posted a desire to contribute with conservation projects in King County - there's value in having that forum be the go to source for supporting organizations and actually doing good work.

    Perhaps we need an angry political ranting forum that the rest of us can place on ignore.

    It is interesting to go back to the beginning of the forum and look at the first threads then take a look at what it evolved into.

    What? You thought conservation isn't politically controversial? Come on.

    I know conservation is political but the forum is no longer a conservation forum. It is almost completely political with most threads having little to do with conservation or in some cases racist or religious in topic. I am just as guilty as the others posting there but if I could ignore the entire forum I would and do to some extent.

    I just use my personal, built-in ignore function to avoid some people & contentious threads.

    I like the arguing. Like anyone's actually going to change each other's minds. I think when your amount of political and "conservation" posts exceeds fishing related posts your account should be locked until you provide a fishing report with pictures.

    It's turning into the Washington Fighting Forum. Maybe it's cause I just saw the new Wonder Woman movie...;)

    No, not that I'm aware of.

    To be fair, there is a good deal of information to be gleaned between the outright misinformation and potshots (guilty). You might have to read through a bunch of links to get there, but I find the conservation forum incredibly informative.

    I just wish that forum would get used more for encouraging action on specific issues (writing congress about pebble mine, public access, etc) than acrid debate on broader issues.

    Another forum I am part of made their Political subforum password protected with a very simple password. This had the effect of removing the forum when you'd scan the "new posts" option on Tapatalk. If it helps the forum is Teton Gravity Research.

    What about ignored prefixes in preferences?
    Do those work for anyone?
    They don't for me.

    You mean, like going to rescue a tree that's burning when it sits in the middle of a raging forest fire?

    The stakes in conservation issues have grown well beyond a single subject. The basic laws, regulations, and budget support for everything related to environment is being attacked. Pebble mine is a drop of water in Lake Erie.

    I post informative articles in Conservation. It should never be necessary. Which pisses me royally.
