Arrow The "Ignore user function"

OK I'm stealing Griffin's idea here, who posted this on Amélie's forum
http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=290920


Got a poster or 20 you just can't stand?

True, some posts and posters need to be reported, but some are just personally annoying and should be ignored. Can't help yourself?

Meet your friend and mine, the ignore list. It's fun, it's free, it's easy!

You can add people one at a time:
- click on their username,
- select "view public profile"
- click on "Add postername to your ignore list"

or all at once:
- go to your own control panel
- select "Buddy/Ignore lists" from the Miscellaneous section
- type or paste the names into the box, hit "save," repeat

and you won't have to see their posts, rep comments or pms!

Re: The "Ignore user function"

you're right Saar but sometimes the best way to react to them, is to ignore them. They'll stop eventually if you don't reply

And as I said before if you get personal attacks, that you find offensive do report them. But it doesn't mean the poster will be suspended/banned. That's where the ignore function comes in handy.

Re: The "Ignore user function"

I reported them, but nothing was done
and if you then find out that that person is telling lies about you
it is very difficult not to react to that...

I know what you mean, but that's exactly where the ignore function comes in handy, and when I personally find it most useful.

Does it stop people from posting crap? Of course not. But it does keep me from getting sucked into crap arguments and dragged down to their level.

Re: The "Ignore user function"

Pfff, I see no reason not to read the crap that some people post.
As a matter of fact, I enjoy reacting to it. Not because I have the illusion that they will change their ways but because I like to let them know that there are people who notice what they are doing. I like the idea that that bothers them, even though it will probably not be for more than a few seconds.

Yeah, I got that the first time you posted it

And I've had the same problem with a few select posters so I do know where you're coming from. Look at it this way - they usually notice that you're not responding to them. And 9 times out of 10 it drives them NUTS that they can't get a response

The Report function

I'll just remind everyone of something else here:


You don't want to put anyone on ignore... but you can't stand the crap they're posting or feel offended/insulted/attacked. The best way to get a reaction from the mods/admins is to report them. Mods and admins don't read through all the forum at all times so if you think a post should be brought to their attention, report it. They'll look at it, do something about it if necessary and keep an eye on it.

It's also the best way not to get into an argument that would get personal and would make you even more angry/upset. So even if I'm away and for example one day some kind of Kim hater comes along in CCL with bashing and posts full of hate like we had a couple of times in the past, report it right away, every single mod/admin will see it and will do something about it.

As I said before bashing/insulting won't be tolerated on the board whether it's towards another poster or a player or anyone for that matter. So instead of reacting (and sometimes it's hard to shut up, I know all about it ) just report immediately, don't wait.

Re: The "Ignore user function"

I refuse to use the "ignore" function. I agree with Griffin - just don't rise to the bait. People who are being provocative by making personal insults about people they hardly know or don't know at all will soon stop behaving like children when they know that their posts have no effect, particularly when they know that you have read them and not reacted, rather than having them on ignore.

Secondly, I want to thank Yasmine for closing gopher's thread!!! I don't have anything against him/her but his/her messages were very nasty and this forum is for Kim's fans not for those who want to mock her!
Thanks Yas!!!

Re: The "Ignore user function"

You're welcome Doris. My message wasn't to stop people from having their opinions, but more be careful on how you express them and try to accept people's opinions. That goes for everyone in here

Re: The "Ignore user function"

and yes you can disagree or be sad/upset with some of Kim's decisions, but you can say it without insulting or being nasty to anyone
