Louise:

No that I've ever had the occasion to need to do this but can you explain the irnore PM feature to us so we know how to do it if we have to?


you go to your profile and look at the left of the screen. Under 'Modify Your Profile' choose "Private Message Options" There you will find a box where you can put a member's screen name....put one members name per line then scroll down and choose accept.

For instance, I have chosen to ignore myself.  :)

And of course you cannot place Moderators or System Administrators on ignore  ::)  ;)

Actually, that's not true. You can place Moderators on ignore.

Well, that's why I try to moderate with a light touch! My goal is to make this a place where folks get along and we don't need to use the ignore button. I used it liberally over on IMDb. I had a few folks on ignore on another forum that shall not be named. I have no one on ignore here. And I like to think that no one is ignoring me. Since I am not getting any blocked PM messages, if I am on someone's ignore list, I am not writing them anyway! LOL

Seems to me you folks here do moderate with a light touch (compared to what I've seen over at DCF):)

Well that having been said, we as moderators aren't supposed to place others on ignore, but I don't think anything prevents users from placing one or more moderators on ignore!

Good point, Louise. I guess when I wrote my other post I was thinking without my mod hat on...
