PM Blocking Seemingly Not Working
« on: May 10, 2015, 11:16:52 am »
I put someone on my ignore list and put my pm settings to "admins and buddies only" and they keep sending pms
How do I fix this

We've been getting several reports of this lately; unfortunately the blocking feature is something built into the forum software, so I don't really know a workaround. I will ask Natasha about it, as she knows the technical things better.

In the meantime, to everyone: Please just don't contact people if they ask you not to. I know that's annoying sometimes, but a little respect can go a long way

I'm aware of the reports that have been coming in, and I'll be looking into it soon; it's been a busy weekend.  When I have updated information, I'll post it here (I'm also changing the topic subject to something more descriptive).

How about this:  Anyone harassing another member over PMs is subject to a ban, loss of PM privileges, or other disciplinary action.  Please report any harassing messages to an admin (there's a handy Report link for this).

Uh I guess that Simple Machines do not support these type of features-maybe try checking the mods list for a list of possible mods that could solve the issue.

SMF supports this feature I know. My old community I ran used SMF and it worked flawlessly. However this site really needs to update SMF badly. Version 2.0.10 is out and here we are on 2.0 RC3 xD

But seriously though, SMF should be updated one day since there are nasty exploits are present in earlier versions

To my knowledge, PM blocking has worked in the past. I'm not sure why it stopped.

And regarding the update, my guess is it wasn't really thought about since we have a whole new website in the works. That development hasn't been active for a while now, so maybe we'll look into updating soon :lol-fox:
