The FusionBB software allows users to selectively ignore other specific users.
Adding users to your 'ignore list'
To add another user to your 'ignore list': click on their username, then on Manage Ignores. This takes you to a page that lists their user ID/Name and has a space for you to add an Optional Reason to briefly explain why you're ignoring this person. This field is optional, but if many people are ignoring this user with the same reasons, the site administrators will see this and will determine if other actions are needed on their part.
This page also allows you to set the Ignore Level:
- Level 1: Tinted Glass (Placing users behind the 'tinted glass' will prevent them from inviting you to a private topic.)
- Level 2: Wood Crate (Placing users in a 'wood crate' as the same affect as 'tinted glass' plus they will not be able to view your profile.)
- Level 3: Lead Box (Placing highly toxic users in a 'lead box' has the same affect as 'wood crate' plus the user's topics and posts will be hidden from your view. Their names will also not be displayed in the 'online' information.)
You can also remove yourself from any PTs with the person you're ignoring. Uncheck the option Remove you from PT under the Level.
Also note: you may wish to set yourself as 'invisible' from online displays so that users you are ignoring can't see that you're online. To do this, go to:
My Fusion >> Control Panel >> Display Settings
and uncheck the box marked Visible Online.
Managing your 'ignore list'
To manage your ignore list, go to:
My Fusion >> Control Panel >> Ignore list
This page wil show the users you have on ignore, the level of ignore, any optional reasons, their online status, and options you have (Remove them from ignore or Edit the ignore user reasons).
