Someone's ignore list.

An Ignore List was a feature on the Scratch Website where Scratchers could ignore other users. It was available only on one's own My Stuff Page. Once someone was ignored, their comments and projects would not be shown to the ignoring user.

How to Ignore a User

To ignore someone, go to your profile. Then click "Edit My Ignore List". Add their username and reason, then click "Ignore". To remove someone from one's ignore list, they would click "remove".

Reasons to Ignore a User

Some reasons why a Scratcher might have chosen to ignore someone else are as follows:

  • They have behaved annoyingly/inappropriately
  • They have spammed a project
  • They are simply unwanted by the ignorer
  • They are spamming a scratcher's Profile

People who can see an Ignore List

Only the Scratch Team could see someone else's ignore list. This was because the list was a personal matter with the Scratch Team and the user.

Scratch 2.0

Although the ignore list was not a feature in Scratch 2.0, some users thought it should be re-implemented,[1] because they did not want to see a user's comments or projects. However, this has been rejected as it simply buries problems instead of solving them.[2]
