Oh, this is already implemented - even twice:
  1. phpBB doesn't know threads, hence they're ignored to begin with
  2. a member just doesn't visit/read a topic (or what exactly did you mean by "ignore"?)

Haha, purely based on the title op this topic I was going to vote NO (precisely for Amigojack's first remark).
But I'll give the TS some leeway because I'm considering he would like to mark selected topics as invisible to him (for one reason or the other).
Some more info is needed, without which this idea's implementation will not go beyond the already present human trait allowing ignoring of anything.

A bug is a feature that hasn't made it to the manual (yet)

My first thought was that it was something along the lines of the "foes" system but for topics and/or posts but I am not sure how you could implement such a system until "after the event" i.e. you will have already read the topic before deciding to ignore - but that is waht you do now "manually"

Ignore a topic on what bases? Title? Give us more details about your idea.

I can imagine a feature for users to mark topics to "ignore". That way, they won't show up as indicators for new posts.

For instance; If there were a topic I'm not interested in (A), but in a forum with topics that I AM interested in (B), it would be nice if that new messages in topic A wouldn't mark that forum as having new messages.

Of course, that idea would have to be worked out properly. For instance; if there were notifications originating from such topics (mentions, quotes, etc.), should those be ignored as well? And what if I have posted once in some slowchat topic that I don't want to follow anymore and choose to ignore, would that topic still show up in the active topic list or in "Your posts"? Etc. etc.

In essence though, I see a proper use case for such a feature, if worked out properly.

Simple CMS, Feed post bot, Avatar Resize, Modbreak, Magic OGP, Live topic update, Modern Quote, Quoted Where (GDPR) and Autoresponder.
Newest: FAQ manager for 3.2
