Block Feature on Discourse


#1

In my other Discourse forum there is a block feature (Called Mute) under account options.
It’s fairly limited but still nice to have as an option.
I don’t see it (or many other options) here. Just curious if its just not available on this Discourse or if perhaps I just haven’t unlocked it yet?

As a point of reference this is what the acct options look like on that other Discourse:

Actually never seen a block option, I think

No flag Turtle :

Also is it for Adam the gamer?


#3

Thanks :slight_smile:
I’ve only ever blocked one person on a Discourse forum but it was really nice once I did.
I know there are differences on each Discourse but wasn’t sure if it was an option I could look forward to on this one.


#4

Would be a nice feature…
The spamliking can get really annoying (even liking deleted posts) :confused:
& the comments are absolutely pointless


#5

Pretty much exactly my thought.
I suppose I’ve been lucky but I’ve never seen such egregious intentional spamming go unchecked on a forum before and it would be really nice to have a way to pare it down.


#6

I think this will die down pretty soon :wink:

Summary

Spamming gets boring over time & they lose interest in messing around like this (I hope)


#7

I also think this will die down pretty soon.

They already had one time out.
I’m sure a second is coming , longer this time.

Given one of my guild mates is currently permanently banned from commenting here…
It will happen eventually.
We just have to be the bigger people

Wow…harsh! Hope this option is applied with discernment. Some Forums have thin skinned cliquey folk and so end up serving an oligarchy of several rather than the whole community. Staying on topic and tempered is one thing but I have seen this option egregiously used in General and Off topic chats as well. Please be fair when troll hunting and include friends and guildies if they are deserving.


#9

Can you say that again without those fancy American words?

Not everyone is from NA


#10

I think you’re a little confused.
Such a block feature allows One Person to block One other person from their feed.


#11

Reveille: Than, if I read it right, you can actually Block new Topics from Latest category in your feed? Is that for an individual’s postings or the category as a whole?


#12

It’s something that is available in Other Discourse forums that I’m a member of.
I was asking if it was also available (or eventually available through badges) here.
It seems that it is not. Which is fine. I was just curious. It’s hardly a life changing option lol.

The way it works elsewhere is nothing from the person blocked shows up in your notifications. You still see what they’ve posted if you click the thread but nothing about what they say alerts you to it’s presence.
If you choose to block a thread you can still see it if you look for it but nothing from the thread would show up in your notifications.


#13

It looks like blocking other players is in beta in the discourse features.

This is an open source forum, so it’s possible the other forum hosts modded blocking into the code themselves.

Still would like a block feature
