It was temporarily removed when it was discovered that you could block staff members with it, but it may be reinstated if we can figure out a work around for that.

I don't think it's a good idea to block users completely but perhaps an ignore function...? Just to not see peoples posts and have it so you have to click it to see it, like on tumblr. Not sure if there's a forum one BUT i think that's just a better idea.

thank you, secret santa!! :D

another small thing tho although this is more of a question; how do you submit more Warriors fanfic on the fanfic function? was it intentionally removed? i was planning on putting up more of my fics on here but i don't know where the submit button is

That would work, but at the same time.. if a staff member is "ignored", so to say, would that also not show global posts made by them? I'd like to think that announcements and other important posts would be immune to that... not unless you want to start making a global announcement account just for that, or use Moneyfur, Blizz's account, or something along those lines... which seems like a waste of time when you can just use the account you have.

I would be fine with just not keeping that block feature at all; if you have such a problem with a member, you can talk it out or just not talk to them at all. Or, if it's serious, then report them? But tbh, unless it happens on Wish, it probably wouldn't be a good idea to bring outside drama here....especially if that person, or group of people, hasn't done anything to you at all here.

Like, I know sometimes people get into fights over skype, tumblr, twitter, ect. It's not a good thing just to block them everywhere, despite the person in question not doing anything on said website. The same goes for trying to block staff, especially the modmins- they are what keep this place running... it wouldn't be advisable to block them.

But everyone go block @Tom <3

The game is on again- a lover or a friend?
A big thing or a small, the winner takes it all.
