Asking for a friend :P

Also, will there be extra warnings for those members? would suck to pay $12 only to get banned the next day...I'd sue Ukmix for all 12 pence it's worth and get my $12 back, I need to pay bills babes 8-)
I guess you take your chance hun!

Looking forward to being able to block certain members. Although it could make counting survivor votes tricky in some instances.
You'll see this when you block someone:

We'll adjust rules for survivors to include a rule which adds checking this in.

two questions:

1 If I block someone, will he/she know I've blocked him/her?

2 If someone I haven't blocked quotes someone I've blocked and makes a post against it, will I see his/her (the person I haven't blocked) post?

Surely, being a premium member has so many privileges already, & getting away with breaking rules shouldn't be one of them :-?

No, the only person who will know who's blocked who is me and only I will know by dialling directly into the database (which is too much hassle). Interestingly, I have since come to learn that it is possible to add posters to a global ignore list (whereby a person is automatically ignored by everyone :lol: ).

I'm guessing if someone quotes a person you've blocked, you will still see that still?

Yes, unfortunately - there's no way for the system to recognise the "offending" part of the post.

I've been looking into whether there's a fix, and there doesn't appear to be an easy one.

Exciting!
What will happen with saving drafts as an option and will all the messages in this folder in the user panel disappear after the transition?

There isn't a Drafts facility built in as standard on the new software - therefore, I'd advise you PM yourself any drafts you wish to keep, and they'll be imported across as part of your private messaging portfolio. Longer term, it is possible to add such a facility as part of a modification - I would advise you raise this as part of our Forum Feedback Survey (which we'll launch in a couple of months).

Will make this clear to all members when I'm able to confirm our go live date.

But if he hasn't got you on his block list, he will still see your posts, although you won't see his.

I would never block anyone, seeing annoying posts on a daily basis is an essential part of the ukmix experience. Maybe I'm just a masochist.

True. I don’t think blocking users goes well with the whole point of being a member on a forum.

I agree with both points, to an extent - that's why I'll be limiting the blocking to 5 users per poster (will reduce this further if there's too much of a noticeable impact on discussion). If you're not getting on with more than 5 people on a forum, regularly and consistently, there's probably a reason for that that an ignore feature will not resolve.

It's worth noting that your individual block lists are self-maintained - so you can update the list as and when you like, and in response to however you're feeling on any given day.

Will it be possible to block admins/mods? asking for a friend :)

I don't like the thought of being able to block people.

Yeah I don't support the block feature, as it will disrupt a lot of conversation and engagement. However if the admin team believe it's best for it to be a feature, then I trust their judgement.
