Ignore list

    [SOLVED] ignore list

    I put someone on my ignore list because I didn't want to receive PMs from him.

    But now I find that I can't read any post by him (though I can read previews of his thread starters).

    Makes reading threads a bit odd …

    Shouldn't there be an option to stop PMs from someone, but to allow me to see their posts?

    (though I suppose I could temporarily un-ignore him, and then re-ignore him immdiately!)

    You could allow only admins, mentors and buddies to PM you, but that would mean making everyone a buddy except that one guy. It would be a useful feature to add to the ignore list if you could choose what you wanted to ignore from people.

    Yes, the ignore function ignores EVERYTHING by a poster, not just PMs.

    BTW, if someone is being disruptive by PM (i.e., you've asked them not to correspond by PM and they are not heeding that request), sending insults, or other things that are not welcome, you can notify one of the mentors (yes, by PM...sorry). PMs are not immune to general rules of conduct and common courtesy here, and we can help deal with someone who is being disruptive...but we can't do that if we don't know they're doing it.

    I'm not sure this is much of a problem. I just checked and like most places you can still view posts by a user just by clicking on the view post option, at the point the users post has been hidden. So although it's mildly more inconvenient, doesn't really seem a need to have the option to discriminate over posts.

    Is someone on my ignore list barred from sending me VMs?

    I can't see it mentioned on the Options page. :confused:

    Re: [SOLVED] ignore list

    You can always limit visitor messages to contacts and mentors in the edit options menu. As far as I can tell, the ignore list prevents you from seeing other users posts and prevents them PMing and e-mailing you. Not sure about visitor messages though.
