Someone's ignore list.

The ignore list was a feature on the Scratch Website where Scratchers could ignore other users. It was available only on the user'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, a user would go to their profile and click "Edit My Ignore List". They could then add a username and reason, then click "Ignore". If someone wanted to remove someone from their own list, they could 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 user who is ignoring them
  • They are spamming a Scratcher's profile

People who can see an Ignore List

Only the Scratch Team and the owner of the list could see ignore list. This was because the list was a personal matter with the Scratch Team and the user.


Although the ignore list was not a feature in Scratch 2.0 onwards, 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 because the Scratch Team believed it would bury problems instead of solving them.[2] If user A ignored user B due to their behavior, while user A would no longer be subject to it, it would not do anything to stop user B from continuing to bother other Scratchers.

However, a suggestion to ignore & report users at the same time is not rejected.[3]
