We encourage members to make use of the Report Abuse process instead of ignoring a user, as that allows the Community Management team to address and correct behaviour that is not in line with the Community Policy. However, we do understand that there are cases where you don't want to see a member's posts or messages, so we give you the option to ignore them completely.
Before you follow these steps, you must ensure you are logged in to your account.
There are two ways to ignore a user; both have the same effect and apply to messages and forum posts. You do not need to repeat the steps in each area. So if you ignore someone on the Bullboards, you will also block direct messages from them.
Option One: user avatar context menu
If you click on the user's avatar image, you will get a context menu of actions you can take related to that user. This is available anywhere on the Bullboards where you see the user's avatar, including threaded or non-threaded view, in the list or a post-focused view.
Option Two: in the Messages area
To do this, click on the dropdown menu on your username at the top of the page and then click on "Messages"
Apart from your Inbox, Outbox, and Contact List, you can manage your Ignore List on this page. You can either ignore or unignore a user by removing or adding members to your Ignore List.
