Message Blocking

Post by Pizza Boi on April 30th 2014, 10:43 am

Hi Very Happy

I'm not entirely sure if this has been suggested already (I checked this area first but I might have missed a topic so please tell me if this type was made already).

Anyway, please add the message blocking function for forums. I'm really annoyed by some people who continue on asking useless questions over, and over, and over, and over, and over again (Who doesn't feel this, right?) .

Basically, this function would specify a person to have them refrained from sending you messages and yes, it's technically a block function BUT the person could still see your messages in posts.

Also, as much as possible, this function should also be implemented for admins because I know an admin can see everything, but this should limit their powers.

I'm suggesting this because of a few things I received in my place and because of a few here in Forumotion and this is one of them:

I guess it could be useful however, it sounds pretty much like another block function. Perhaps breaking down the current block feature and creating sub options for the type of content you want to block from the user could suffice.

Personally I don't have much problem with people sending me their threads, even though I'm going to go through all the threads since my last visit, which means I'll eventually see their topic. I usually just delete it after I'm finished reading.

Hi Very Happy

Yes, that could be a viable option but it depends on the Dev afterall so I put it as a general function right now.

About this:

Personally I don't have much problem with people sending me their threads, even though I'm going to go through all the threads since my last visit, which means I'll eventually see their topic. I usually just delete it after I'm finished reading.

Well, as I said in a previous topic I made, I am trying to save as much inbox space I can here. Sure, other networks would be available but I don't want to mix my files up and plus, some of them are slow loading.

If you can vote yes, that'd be awesome :rose: !

This is partially possible through the friends/foes feature, where adding a user as a foe, means they can't see your posts, and cannot pm you. Although you cannot foe a power user.

I see this as a positive addin.

Voting positive Smile

You can add someone to your foe list, and you will not see their messages and get private messages.

Hi Very Happy

If you read what RadioHead said, it also disables the foe from reading your posts and I don't want that. I just want it as a sub par or another option to give you the right to ban a specific person from messaging you Smile .

You can also take away the able to use the pm system for a certain member. If this member was overdoing it, I will take it away.

Hi Very Happy

Yes, but I would be the end party. Hmm... how do I put it.

Technically speaking, I want it to be a specific for both parties. The member CANNOT PM me, but he is ABLE to PM the other members, it's just me he can't PM.

Basically, the suggestion is a specific and not a general because I don't want everything/everyone affected for the member.

Pizza Boi

its a pretty decent idea, and I guess the users should have the right to block someone from privately messaging them.. so my vote goes YES.

When I think about it some, it is a good idea. Being able to block specific people from your inbox can be useful in some cases, especially if you don't want to block that user completely.

Hi Very Happy

Oh sorry, I thought it was here, lol. Anyway, I believe this feature is possible with WordPress, but I'm not 100% sure. Though if you consider FB a site, that'd be awesome Laughing

Hey
umm.. On second thoughts... I think an option in user's preference like "Allow on friends to contact by PM" would be certainly useful, and it kinda covers your motive..
what do you say?

Hi Very Happy

As an admin, I generally have to allow all my members to contact me; however, as a person, I'm annoyed at some members so this feature is specifically for just that person.

If it's turned into an option like: "This person has prevented you from contacting them" then that would be more awesome~

This is a system on vBulletin forums and works well but there is a hack to that system and they bypass the system but if we had it we have no right to the server side of things so we will have no problem with it.

So i Vote YES on this one i liked the system back when i had a forum with them.
