Block Feature


Sabre

Recommended Posts

First, can we have the feature back where it tells you if someone has posted while you were typing?

Anyway, in the Singles Awareness Day thread apparently people aren't happy at the fact I have some people blocked. I could post the list, or add it to the signiture, but it might cause a bit of drama.

Nova also assumed that I block people because I don't agree. That is not the case. Iirc I was advised to use the block by someone else, but don't quote me on that. It was also suggested that all blocks should be temporary.

I personally have never liked the block feature, really. It just puts up a wall between discussion, and it's quite annoying to have your posts ignored for whatever reason. I myself wouldn't mind if Sabre posted his list, although due to his block he probably won't realize I have no problem. In all honesty, though, I question the necessity of the ignore feature in the first place. I think we should either get rid of it or impose a cooldown for it so that people won't just flippantly block whoever they feel like.

I concur.

Because ignoring them creates boundaries and awkwardness. If different people are missing different peices of the conversation, it collapses on itself. Check the RP rule proposal threads from a while back for your own posts in relation to everyone else's.

Just spinning past does the same, but it's less embarrassing because you're at least AWARE you're making a fool of yourself by not listening.

The whole point of the ignore feature is to remove posts from people you don't like. Without it, there is no other way to do that. Showing posts by people in your ignore list defeats the purpose of the feature.

If you don't like the way it works, don't use it.

Or have some self control and dont read the post if you know what to expect?

If i have to put up with Child Porn and Gore on 4chan, I think you guys can deal with a few unpleasant words.

This comparison really isn't valid IMO because a few unpleasant words (which may or may not be modded) are totally differently from things like CP and gore (which will be violating the rules and be a crime in the case of CP) Furthermore, there is no universal "standard" when it comes to what is acceptable and what isn't. Normally, individuals should not be forced to tolerant something if they don't want to yet other people can with ease. That being said, I still think the Ignore/block feature is being over used.

I concur.

double concur. and also agree with the whole thing about creating awkwardness and isolation between the members; the block feature should be used for, if anything at all, stuff such as PMs if someone gets on your nerves a little too much. for someone like myself it rarely ever happens either way.
