"Ignored" threads keep reappearing?

How does Slickdeals "remember" ignored threads? I haven't gone so far as to take screen shots and compare the forum views thread by thread, but it seems to me that every time I log back in, all of the threads I previously "ignored" (because they're deals I have no interest in) keep showing up again in the forum listings. Are even those - like Front Page preferences - stored in cookies?!

Aha! That probably explains it. I don't recall seeing that limit mentioned anywhere obvious, so thanks for pointing it out. Still pretty much sucks, but at least I can try to manage it instead of pointlessly "re-ignoring" threads tje same threads over and over...

The ability to ignore a thread (unlimited threads) and never see it again was probably my favorite feature of Fat Wallet. Made it very easy to quickly tailor the site to what you cared about.

Especially at this time of year when "some people" insist on posting every single item from any and every store's BF ads as separate threads, no matter how preposterously lame they are (as in, the same store's weekly deals are better 20 weeks out of ever year...)Mad I just looked through my list of ignored threads and none of them is more than 2 days old...Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

If it's the same users doing that, it'd probably be quicker and easier to just put that/those users on ignore and then it'd block all of their threads.

D'uh...Embarrassment I suppose I should be totally embarrassed that I didn't think of that myself but instead, I'm just thrilled that you pointed it out. Thanks!Cool Er, well, it would've been a good idea if a certain category of poster weren't "non-blockable'...Frown

As shorted mentioned, the individual deal threads are required in order to make our ad scans interactive (searchable, etc), and those op's are part of the team responsible for creating them. The good news is that they are all contained to a specific forum, so if you do not wish to be alerted of them, we suggest that you update your deal alerts to remove the "Black Friday Deals" forum. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Curious what happens after 400. I have this 'issue' and want to ignore current deals. If i ignore post #401, does it un-ignore post #001 to keep me at the max or does the system not capture anything after 400? Can i 'reset' my ignored threads so that those older threads are no longer ignored and i can start ignoring more recent posts?

Thank you.

It's starts removing ignores...you can go into your options for more control over what is removed, by deleting them yourself.
