I've been searching everywhere for the illusive ignore button for weeks but have just found it today....blonde moment!

What happens when you ignore someone? Do you see any of their post at all?

Hi Julia - I think it works much the same as the blocked button on facebook - you can't see the person you have "ignored" or their posts though I am not sure if they can still see yours X

When you ignore someone, instead of seeing their posts, you see a message saying that you have ignored that member. You are given the option to reveal the hidden post.

So for example, if I were to ignore you, instead of seeing your post at the top of the page I'd just get a message saying a post from you was made, with a link to show the post.

Hi everybody. Sorry - the Bella thread is closed so didn't know where to put this???
It's usually my husband who accesses this forum, but I really want to say something about these issues. Firstly we have a brand new JD puppy, Crumble - (Pippa and Uncle Fester) and she is just the most fabulous little puppy you could ever imagine, not just in looks but in personality, behaviour and house training. What a star!!! I am a total fan of Stephen and Julia and evrything they do regarding their lifestyle and breeding puppies. What a set up! Anyway, the reason for my communication today is that what some people do not realise is - accidents happen. I am a primary school teacher, but before I had my children I was a midwife. I just want to say that during my time in midwifery, upsetting outcomes did arise - miscarriages, stillbirths, preterm deliveries and premature babies not making it even though all was done by the most qualified of doctors. As much as these tragedies happen, people didn't usually give up, they went on to have further preganancies and watched/monitored more closely in order to have a more favourable outcome. Isn't this the same in the animal world??? Nobody can guarantee anything ever - but with expertise, professional involvment and dedication, risks are reduced. Julia and Stephen sadly went through this trauma with Bella - nobody could have predicted it when all other girls have had such a successful outcome. Their experience brought a tear to my eye - they did all they could and more. Thank goodness Bella went on to have another litter for her sake too as the whole thing must have been so traumatic for her too. And guess what - we saw Bella's 2day old puppies when we went to pick up Crumble. What a happy outcome! Julia and Stephen, thanks for all your support and keep doing what you are doing!;) Clare

I have used the ignore button to block a few people who's posts were rude and upsetting, but the trouble is that you then see other peoples responses to them and get curious as to what they said to provoke the response! I then end up unlocking them! I'm just too nosy for my own good!

Ha ha yes I did that on another forum but then realised the same as you!

At the end of the day I think people can make their own minds up whether they wish to read a thread/post or respond and if you started putting lots of people on ignore then maybe forums are not for you.:confused:

If you are ignoring people because you may have found a post from them you disliked before doesn't mean that other stuff they post will be the same.

You may miss out on some valuable or interesting information.

On here though I wouldn't bother- no-one says anything that requires people to be put on ignored. There have been differences of opinion but it's pretty tame on here compared to some :D


But hey ho we are all different and if using the ignore button makes you feel better- well happy clicking :)

Please dont put human emotions on a dog, it was good for Bella's sake at all, breeding Bella again was taking a huge risk with her health and for any bitch pregnancy puts her under great strain, and is not without risk (far more risky than a human preganancy). Even in the wild with wolves it is only to highest ranking female that has litters - the lower ranking ones don't, they simply help raise them.

Pleeeeaaaaase dont let us start this all again. Please let's drop it and move on!!!!!!!
I am not being funny but why didn't you post this remark when Andy0 commented off topic on this thread. :( I was very tempted to ask them why they felt the need to start the discussion up again as the other thread had been closed, but I thought 'no, lets just leave it be, the discussion is finished' so I am interested to know why when Doodlebug replies you suddenly want it dropped? As I have said before, no one is allowed to have their own opinion on here. :(

One rule for one etc.....

If Doodlebugs has not been on forum yesterday they then cannot have seen or contributed to the thread.

So they came on today and saw it- so what they are not allowed to post then?

Surely ever member is entitled to contribute to a thread and there are no guidelines on time frame when to do so? not everyone can come on here daily.

I know it may seem frustrating when things gets mentioned again but surely the forum should be promoting fair useage and not discriminating against members who cannot come on every day.

Obviously emotive subjects do ruffle feathers but if people are not being rude surely they are allowed to express their opinion when they view threads :confused:

It's only when Dave or Kendal closes the thread it stops anyone from further posting..............

Have just joined but have looked on here before as a guest.

Hope I won't be needing to put people on ignore as life is too short to take things that seriously on here :)

Debating and having differing opinions is not the problem. The problem is when people make it personal and/or make nasty, hostile posts. At that point everything breaks down. If the threads could all maintain a mature level of discussion, I don't think we'd be having this discussion. :)

this is exactly what i was thinking,if a subject has been closed it doesnt matter who brings it up again but dont wait until its someone you dont like before telling them to drop it,be fair and let people have their say even if you dont agree with it.this whole thing has really upset me,i wasnt being nasty like many of you think,im animal daft and simply did not agree with it and was only thinking of the dog,im entitled to that x
