Improvements To Gamer Blocking Controls

By Jack Watling,
A site feature that has been requested several times is to have greater control as to what content you can see (or more importantly, don't see) from particular gamers.

We've just updated the site to allow you to block a gamer and also hide their content in the following ways:
  • Prevent them from sending you private messages
  • Hide their forum posts
  • Hide their friend feed comments
  • Hide their comments on other parts of the site (blog posts, solutions, user reviews etc)

Blocking a gamer

Before you can hide forum posts or comments, you first need to block the gamer.

To do that, go to their gamer page and click on the gamer button and select Block gamer from the drop-down:

Blocking a gamer from their homepageBlocking a gamer from their homepage

This will initially stop them from sending you a Private Message or any invites.

Controlling the content you see

To control the content you see from a particular gamer once you have blocked them, you can now go to the Blocked Gamers page (this is also linked from a tab on the My Settings page).

From here you can choose exactly which content you wish to hide from each gamer you have blocked.

Please report any abuse to a moderator

While it's undoubtedly going to be very useful to have this level of control over who you interact with on the site, you should still report any abuse you receive to the moderation team to deal with.

You can report forum posts by using the Report post button on every post, and you can report any PMs you receive by using the Report Message option on the Message drop-down in the message itself. These reports go directly to the Moderation team. Or you can contact a Moderator directly if you prefer, there is a list of the moderators on the Staff list. Moderators listed in green are onsite currently.

We hope this feature allows you to better enjoy your time on TrueTrophies!
