Random users assigned to Ignore List

guarguar Registered User regular
I noticed this when I popped in SE++ a couple weeks ago and try as I might, I couldn't remember when I put this particular person on the ignore list. I figured I must have at some point and we hadn't crossed paths since. Then I noticed today someone else had their posts hidden and upon checking the ignore list, saw that it was empty. Still. I don't use the thing. So I'm not sure how these people are being assigned to it.

    people go on auto-ignore for everyone after they reach 100,000 posts

    TFS did this a few weeks ago

    now Shoe hit 100k

    100k+ posts, I assume? It's like what TFS had when she broke the 100k posts. Still not sure if that is working as intended or a very creative bug in the system.

    Shoe's on my ignore list, but he's not showing up on the Edit Ignore List page. Also, whenever I go to his Metal thread and I choose to remove him from my ignore list, it says it's removed him successfully, but it doesn't actually work. Is this just part of the auto-ignore system?

    Holy shit, to reach 100,000 posts, you'd have to post a little more than 30 times every single day for 9 years (the earliest that archive.org has any record of a Penny-Arcade forum). I don't think the post counts go back 9 years.

    How long do post counts go back?

    I'm curious as well, although to be honest I think that anyone who hits 100k posts on a web forum should have a short vacation to really think about how they manage their free time.

    Who came up with the auto-ignore idea, anyway?

    Shoe actually went out of his way to do it with his Ask Shoe threads. They were good threads.

    Teefs re-registered, I believe.

    Edit: Or was reborn by Tube? I dunno. Has a new join date as October 6th. ~75 posts per day average. Ridiculous.

    Reborn, I think. Hence the reset post count and coloured user title.

    Is... is there a reason for it? I mean, working as intended, that's fine, but I don't see the connection between high post count and ignoring someone. Unless it's "hey, asshole, you spend too much time on the forums, go away".

    I think etoychest still posts occasionally. I think I joined sometime in 2001. I remember Grath from back then.

    The forums went down sometime in 2002, iirc, and when they finally came back up in 2003, it was a whole new database, so post counts were reset. It was a dark time.

    Non-edit: yeah, a quick search shows them posting in Critical Failures a couple weeks ago.
