I can't add certain users to ignore list

Postby Cadmusteeth » Fri Apr 24, 2015 3:41 pm

Hey Pyrrho, I've been trying to add a certain user to my ignore list but I can't since they have their privacy feature on. I know I could just not go to the threads they frequent, but I want to eliminate the temptation to reply to them.
Is there something that can be done about it? Or am I just going to have to roll with it?

Thanks

Go to the User Control Panel - Friends & Ignored Users - Manage Ignore List and enter and submit the handle you wish to ignore.

I wish I could put myself on certain people's ignore list.

Or, you can click on a user's name and then click "ignore user". That might be faster.

I tried that. It said their privacy feature was on and I couldn't access the ignore button.
I also tried submitting their handle and I didn't have any luck there either. Not sure what to do. (the user I'm trying to ignore is grating on my nerves)

It is quite possible, and even more, probably, that the glitch in the system might be referred to as "hoist to your own petard…"
.
Because it is quite possible that the little elf who has by now a dozen user names (and four in this thread) has fouled up the system: now nothing works quite as it should.
Including the idea of making sense, or having sensibility.

Live by the multiple sign-in, die by the multiple sign in.

But count yourself lucky, Cadmus… your assigned user name is literate, elegant, a bow to Greek mythology, and even art.
You COULD have be stuck with something dull, mundane, earthly, stolid…. something like…well… "scrambledggs."
Wouldn't "scrmbldggs" be even more attractive, enchanting even, if "she" had been named "Delilah?"
Or "Marilyn?"

Don't know what to say. I just tested, entering you (haha) into the field next to: Add users to ignore list:
You may enter several usernames each on a different line.
and submitted and confirmed. Worked fine. :pardon:


(Also worked fine to undo that again. ;) )


ETA It also works with users who chose the privacy option. Just tested that.

It worked for me too, manually adding a user to the ignore list that has privacy turned on.

You wish…
However, your opinions aren't really that reliable.
Not being an actual person is so often an impediment to being taken seriously.
And this thread already resembles a convention of wraiths…

Give it up…
"Let the dead bury the dead…"
Yours is already an old (and desperate) joke.
And besides what are you going to do for amusement when this Forum collapses under the weight of all the nonsense you've dumped into it?
Where will you go?

Well, now it worked. Guess I must've misspelled the handle the first time but, whatever. Over and done with.

Perhaps I'll even be able to take a bit of nourishment. maybe an egg,, even soft- boiled.

Hm. I'd go as far as saying that the ignore function should work even if the user has privacy enabled, although the privacy option was an add-on...adding this to my to-do list. Should be a way to fix it. Maybe. Possibly.

I think I may have jump the gun on that one. I was worried when it didn't work the first time I put in the handle but I probably made a mistake in typing it and didn't realize it at the time. Sorry for the false alarm.
