Is is possible to hide a thread?

ArianaAriana Posts: 122 The Mix convert
Hi, I'm still quite new here, and just wondering if it's possible to hide a particular thread so that you don't have to see it? Obviously I know I don't have to click on it, but even just the title of this particular thread is a bit triggering for me when I see it (just because of my own issues, not because there's anything wrong with the thread!) So I was wondering if there's anything I can do to stop the title even coming up for me in places like the What's New page? Completely understand if not, just thought I'd ask in case I'm missing a trick. Thank you x

    Hey @Ariana, there isn't a way I don't think (if I'm wrong @The Mix should say), sorry! :/ xo

    I’ve asked this and there isn’t a way. And they said “We'll make a note of this as a feature and see if it's something Vanilla can develop in the future. ”

    Is it one one of my threads? Always parniod when people ask this sort lol. And because I made two threads today and just make threads a lot lol which makes it quiet likely.  If is I’ll ask them to delete it or edit the title

    Thank you @kathleen0172 and @Shaunie. I might actually delete this if I can now I know the answer because I don't want to make people paranoid, especially when it's my issue, not anything anyone else has done! My head's just in a bad place right now so I'm overreacting to everything. Nothing either of you have done so please don't worry xx

    No sorry. I am always parniod and didn’t mean to make you feel bad. But is okay i get triggered by things like a whole thread and doesn’t mean anyone’s done anything wrong. But I was just wondering if I could help if it was one of my thread

    Thanks @Shaunie, you didn't make me feel bad! Just realised it might make other people feel paranoid too and I don't want to make people feel bad either. But I think I went and missed the window where I could edit it anyway so now I don't think I can do anything!

    Was it one of my threads tho? Lol. It’s totally okay if is. Just really want to help cause I’ve asked the same question so do realise it’s not pathetic to get triggered by title of thread.

    I'm sorry your head's in a bad place bud, and also you're not overreacting <3 You don't at all have to have this thread deleted! However, if you want to...

    Click the flag button (on your first post),

    Click report,

    Select "this is my post and I want to delete it",

    Add in the notes that you want the thread deleted.

    Thank you both for being so lovely and understanding. It wasn't you Shaunie, I usually find your threads really interesting. And thank you kathleen for explaining how to do that because I hadn't worked that out yet!

    Hey @Ariana,

    You can't hide a specific thread, but you can add specific people to your 'ignore list' which should hide all their posts from your view. A bit more heavy-handed than hiding one post, but can help if you find there's a particular person posting about a topic you're finding tricky.

    And as these folks have already said, this isn't an overreaction. We have the ignore feature there to help people look after themselves and avoid conversations they don't feel up to reading, and making use of it is something we encourage everyone to do if they need to.

    It doesn't have to be a personal thing so no worries about worrying anybody. :)

    Thank you @The Mix really useful to know about that feature too, although I'd hope I never have to use it. Thank you for saying it's not an overreaction too. I'm kind of used to everyone in my real life just calling me "silly" whenever I get upset by stuff, so it's nice to see that doesn't happen on here.
