There is options in down corner like mute under the threads.
How this work ? When you mute the thread it still appear in the general forum lists to you ? Because i did try it and it still shown to me on the list, and there are several threads i want to mute, but if i forget the names and click on them seems like they get activated again .
Second one is …i think it is possible to mute someone in forums …
So when you mute you never see that persons posts again ?
And is it reversible? ( in case you muted so if you dont see that persons posts and if there is a discussion goin on … you cannot see persons posts creates a holes )
How this works exactly ? And how much effective ?
Like if another person is quoting muted person… that another persons posts will be invisible to me too?
I don’t use the features under the threads, don’t need to but I can tell you how the Mute/Ignore feature works.
When you go to Preferences and click on users, you select a username you want to mute and you’ll see the options of how long you want to mute that member ( I always click “forever” in the drop-down menu).
Once that done, you will see the username muted with a X next to the name. Clicking that X will unmute the member.
In the threads, you will see “ignored content” where the muted member has posted. You can click on “ignored content” if you’re curious to read their bs and that will not unmute them, you can even reply to a muted member.
When another member quotes the muted member, you will not see the quoted part.
Is it effective? Very.
Blue, at the bottom of a post is a dropdown menu that controls what you will be notified about on a post. Personally I’ve never chosen the “muted” option for a post as they often drop off everyone’s attention mostly after not too long so don’t feel the need tbh. I also don’t have anybody on mute individually as I kind of enjoy watching the latest crop of forumers who think they are Astounding Forum Kommandos but are really more like Bozo the Clowns (of course not looking at you at all, Kellie). They often burn themselves out after a while but regardless it is mildly entertaining to watch.
I hope this doesn’t indicate you are being harassed for any rvb-related thing still. They screwed you over enough…
Because you don’t have anyone ignored, that may be why it’s not showing up. You can click on an individuals profile, and you’ll see a box that says “normal”. Clicking that, will allow you the option to mute that individual so you won’t see notifications that they posted (but you can still see them). The other option is ignore, which truly ignores them, their posts are ignored and you won’t see them unless you choose to.
What is the point and purpose to not to give us right to ignore other players who harass us in forums ?
You do telling us to stay silent and not to answer and raport it . We have to see the things they write about us but stay silent ? Untill ISD do something person goin on and on … and sometimes ISD does not interfere .
Do we have to leave the threads ? To not to read quoted posts ?
You dont let us ignore
You dont let us defend and answer and when we answer and defend ourselves we get punished too …
We do report but nothing is happening … we cant get help . We cant get assistance .
I would like to know the reason and explanation before make any judgement .
Why a natural right become a privilige?
sure CCP sets criteria for what each trust level can do. Veteran status is a good example… When they activated vet status a lot of us found out we could do things, then CCP turned around and disabled a lot of the perks of the vet status.
point is, if discourse says a basic member cannot do something, i doubt ccp can go in and say, uh yes they can.
