I had to use the ignore feature once because a new member was harassing me one evening. I don't know if she was drunk, or just feeling mean, but I shut her off. After a few days, I turned "ignore" off, and haven't been bothered any more.

Wow, this explains a lot. (I never noticed the ignore feature before. Does it work kind of like "call block" on a phone?)

It basically just makes members posts invisible to you FM. If there is someone who rubs you the wrong way and you just would rather not see anything they post then you put them on your ignore list and their posts will not show up for you. I am not sure if it does the same for PM's, but I think it does.

Well that does certainly explain alot......I didn't know this feature existed Isn't there a better way to handle the situation if you have an issue with someone? Esp. if the other person is not even aware there was a situation to begin with?? Sounds pretty cold and imature IMHO

Who says the other person is not aware of the situation Deelady? the times I have seen it used have been between members who have fought back and forth for a while both on the board and in PM. When they could not resolve the problems they had then one or both decided to put the other on ignore. It can be a very mature way of handling the situation instead of continual fighting.

This is just one tool at your disposal. Most people will never use it or even have a reason to know it exists. Our site, for the most part, is comprised of people who get along and treat each other well. If there is ever a time when someone is not treating you with that respect then you have the option of ignoring them if you want.

Speaking for myself I've only ever put someone on ignore if they've known I have an issue with them and, BELIEVE ME, they KNOW.

Good Morning GB - Your last post made me curious. Can / Do admins see PM's?

No, mods/admins do not have any access to other members PM's at all. PM stands for Private Message and they are most certainly private. The only way a staff member would see a PM is if someone sent it to them on purpose.

Now I am curious...What about my post made you curious? I am just asking because I want to make sure I am being as clear as possible when posting things like this so if I misled or made the issue cloudy in some way I would love to know so that I can make sure that does not happen again.
