A question

I know there's an ignore list but can you block?

    No. Why would you want that? Do you mean you want someone to stop replying to your posts? Or

    As @Shaunie said, there's no way to block someone completely. This is partly due to a technical limitation, but also partly because we want to create a space that's open and communicative and friendly. If you feel a need to block someone in any way, it could be a sign that we need to address an issue as moderators, in which case it's best to PM us. :)

    We'd much rather resolve an issue that way rather than relying on a full block feature. Ultimately, if someone's being annoying or abusive, it makes more sense for us to look into that and take whatever action is needed. For something that isn't a moderation issue, we'd rather encourage everyone to co-exist and be civil with one another than go to blocking.

    With a close and supportive community like this one, blocking can create quite an unpleasant vibe that we'd rather avoid. :)

    What functionality are you looking for @Sham (e.g. blocking PMs, blocking post responses)? Happy to talk this through over PM if it's about a specific person or situation.

    No specifics have been mentioned here @Shaunie, so probably best not assume. :) It's okay to ask about features like reporting, blocking or ignoring, as long as no names or specific situations are mentioned. That's when it would be considered vagueposting.

    Blocking post responses
    This isn't a feature at the moment @Sham, and most likely not something we'll consider adding. As mentioned, given how close knit and supportive this community is, we want discussion to remain open and for the forum to feel as friendly and welcoming as possible.

    It's also worth noting that by signing up to a public discussion board, part of the deal there is that anyone can read or respond to what you say. That's part of why these places can be so great, and we don't want to change that.

    If you you do find yourself not wanting to read certain responses, you can add them to your ignore list (some members do this to avoid triggering posts or posts around a certain topic). If there's someone you don't get on with or if they're breaking guidelines, best thing to do is tell us via PM. :)

    Does that sound okay?

    If you add the account to your ignore list, you won't see the posts. That's the most we can offer unless there's a guideline issue, in which case we can address that with them directly.

    If it's not a guideline issue and someone is annoying you despite doing nothing wrong, you may just have to live with that if you don't want to ignore them. Being around people you might not like very much is part of using a community like this.

    Again though, do feel free to PM us about it if you think there's something we should know about. :)
