I don't even want to see that they posted anything at all. I don't want an option to look at their post. I want them to be completely invisible to me.

I consider the blocking system to be very flawed. We still see these placeholders when some people want to not see anything about the person blocked. Also, the "probation" idea is, to put it lightly, bizarre. In a lot of more minor situations, it might be conducive to working things out, but some people need to block others that are just entirely toxic to them.

On the flip side, if someone else blocks you it would be nice not to see their shit either. I'm pretty sure Jubei blocked me since he never replies when I reply to him. It's a waste of my time to type up responses to him if he's blocked me.

I agree. The biggest flaw though is that it exists in the first place on a very small forum. Mods should be properly tagging any toxic posts instead.

Edited March 23rd by Knucklesthe2000th

I wanted the block function at one point so I could block obvious spammers, but this was when back when we had more spammers. We don't really have any now.

Maybe not the right post, but also want to note that I accidentally reported a post once and couldn't un-report it.

I just don't want to see a particular user's repetitive nauseating content anymore.

Maybe as an opt-in option, but then you can basically figure out exactly who is blocking you. Which just creates drama potential.

But the bigger issue is that no one else should be able to dictate my experience on the site. You blocked me? Neat. I still want to see your posts.

If you think Jubei has blocked you, you should just block him yourself. Boom, mutually assured avoidance.

Also, the "probation" idea is, to put it lightly, bizarre.

Probation feature also violates the idea of being in charge of your own site experience. If you really don't want to see someone, you can block them. Great, until someone gets sweet talked into giving that person probation and they suddenly show up again for you. Defeats the whole point.

Jubei isn't who I'm worried about. If you must know, I just find everything GC/MS says grating and annoying because it's never anything of substance and he thinks his crap doesn't stink. I would rather he just be completely invisible to me. I know you can't do anything, this thread is basically aimed at Xhin.

People don't tag things when he instigates me but when I retaliate I get tagged because I'm a little more blunt about what I think of him. I don't want it to tell me when he posts in newest replies or see his new threads. I just don't want to see anything from him at all. I want his presence in my perception to vanish entirely.

If blocking a lot of the site's userbase until you're actually happy with your site experience just because a lot of them are problematic at some point is your idea of good. Instead, there should be better enforcement towards what gtx0 should be. It may be a "flawed" feature but it's still one that makes up for the flawed existence of a blocking system on a small site like this. Sometimes people just need to give people another chance on forums like this but they won't think to if they're blocked anyway. They probably won't even remember anyway and only assume there's a good reason why they did it and never undo it. And thus there is even less interaction on this small forum.

Great, until someone gets sweet talked into giving that person probation and they suddenly show up again for you. Defeats the whole point.


And I say having the ability to block people on a site where whether you noticed it or not, quite a bit of people actually have problems with quite a bit of other people at some point or another on a tiny forum defeats the purpose of having a tiny forum at all. This isn't social media, this is a site that can and should be properly managed instead. It's why I simply abstain from blocking here. Social media is an entirely different thing.

Edited March 23rd by Knucklesthe2000th

GC/MS isn't annoying some of the time. Everything he has ever posted is annoying.

Posted March 23rd by I killed Mufasa
I killed Mufasa

Even then I still stand by what I said. The ability to filter posts is one thing, but blocking is another. It's not good for the site at all honestly and frankly I'm sure it's annoying at best when anyone sees the thing that tells them when they're blocked and then suddenly a specific person starts completely ignoring them. Despite what Dooku thinks, that can and easily will cause drama anyway.

I get it but, but for the greater good I think GC/MS should just be ignored and filtered if anything.

Edited March 23rd by Knucklesthe2000th

I don't really care what your opinion is on the matter to be honest with you Knuckles. No offense.

I don't care about your opinion either or that you don't care. It's an issue put right in front of me and I will say something until it's removed. It doesn't matter what you think unless you have the power to remove it, I will just keep saying why it's a bad idea to have it.

Posted March 23rd by Knucklesthe2000th

Plenty of other sites allow you to not have to deal with people you don't like.

Posted March 23rd by I killed Mufasa

Those sites are big and don't have to worry about the amount of social interaction taking place. Even aside from that, it's bad for the reason I mentioned. It's good on social media but not here. You don't have to say anything more if you don't want, I am mostly saying all of this for observers.

Posted March 23rd by Knucklesthe2000th

I wouldn't block you knuckles


mostly because I dont log in

Well the alternative is I leave and nobody has any social interaction with me. Because I've never been angrier at the site. As the leading site merit person on two different occasions, it can't be denied that I generate more discussion per capita than any other user. So losing me would be a bigger overall blow to the site than giving me the ability not to see GC/MS.

You don't understand how much of a pest he is.

Anyone else I argue or debate with at least rationalizes why they feel the way they do. GC will tell me to come disprove him when I had no interest in disproving him to begin with. He doesn't even tell anyone what his stance is anyway. He constantly includes me when he names people who attack him. When literally, the only thing I've ever wanted him to do is shut the fuck up about religion already because he doesn't properly debate. He just say's "I'm right" and nothing, even intelligent things people say, matter at all to him. Because he's the most stubborn fuck wit on gtx0.

He's a cancer to this site, and no I don't think he should be banned, but I shouldn't have to deal with him.

I feel strongly enough about this that if it doesn't change I'm kicking open the door and never coming back.

Well it's not just about me. But you're kind of proving my point, I've tried to get along with you just fine and I post much more than whatever managed to make you sensitive and I am much more than that as a person but you'd still consider blocking me, probably permanently if you could log in. It also proves that this feature causes drama regardless in that you wanted to make this personal in mentioning me specifically. And there are already quite a few people blocking each other on this small site.

But seriously, if you could avoid that sort of tone with me I'll at least try to avoid it with you.

Edited March 23rd by Knucklesthe2000th

Is that what you're worried about? That everyone would block you? I wouldn't block anyone, even people I don't like. But saying literally anything to GC is like smashing my forehead against a brick wall. He's the absolute worst. Because he doesn't behave like a human being. Not even an unlikable human being. He thinks he's above everyone else. His mentality is completely intolerable.

@IKM I actually kind of agree, he gets really really annoying at times and even had a hand in why I left too but I'd still rather come back and mostly ignore him when he's problem.

is that what you're worried about? That everyone would block you?


See: "Well it's not just about me.". I would rather not have anyone block me at all if I am going to be here, but that's not the only reason I'm so against it.

Posted March 23rd by Knucklesthe2000th

Well he doesn't mention your name almost every time he posts.

Posted March 23rd by I killed Mufasa

He'll forget you if you ignore him or go away for a while. He actually seems to think the entire site is against him 24/7 so he'll end up focusing on someone else as soon as you're not around or ignoring him.

Posted March 23rd by Knucklesthe2000th

Against what though? He never gives his actual stance. He just says "come disprove me" and overuses the term 'confirmation bias' when there's nothing to even confirm or deny. I think he has a mental illness honestly. Either that or he's an elaborate troll who likes the long game. Either way, he offers absolutely nothing to my life or existence and I would prefer that he be invisible.

Wasn't that long ago really, but I guess. Just seemed weird that it sounded so personal and like you would block me if you could log in. Seemed like that was still on but like I said, I am willing to move on if possible and try to get along.

Edited March 23rd by Knucklesthe2000th

People need to have the option to completely block someone. If you're OK enough with everyone that you don't want to permanently block anyone, good for you. Everyone should have the option to cut the content that they want to ignore, regardless of other people's feelings.

Posted March 23rd by Cruinn-Annuin

Or I can just leave again if someone despises me enough to block me (again) and there can be less traffic. What's the point of staying then. But see things may have gotten better if they didn't do something so rash.

Edited March 24th by Knucklesthe2000th

If one clown doesn't like you accept it and move on. I'm sure GC thinks I'm a prick too. Our relationship is unhealthy.

Eh. I dislike it when even the worst person does it. It's just the way I work.

But facts don't care about my feelings am I right Null and probably others? After all despite the other reasons I mentioned it's clearly just my FEELINGS isn't it? And feeling NEVER matter right?

Posted March 24th by Knucklesthe2000th

(feelings matter)

Posted March 24th by Ophelia

The feelings of people are not the responsibility of those trying to protect themselves from toxic content (or from posters that legitimately never post things that the user is going to respond to).

Posted March 24th by Cruinn-Annuin

Apparently you couldn't tell that I was implying there are reasons beyond feelings. Reasons I stated in this thread and others. And that wouldn't be a problem if mods actually did their jobs.

Did you even read any of my reasons? Gtx0 doesn't need this shit right now and frankly it doesn't do much good anyway. You will lose more people and more social interaction over stupid ass shit that people somehow think is worth blocking over until most of the site is blocking itself.

I don't know why you insist on worse conditions. I don't know why you want to watch it turn to nothing. But it's just another reminder for me of why this site probably won't get better and why I shouldn't bother with it.

Edited March 24th by Knucklesthe2000th

Having the basic functionality for a user to ignore something that's bullshit to them isn't a worse condition.

Posted March 24th by Cruinn-Annuin

It only seems that way to you because you don't care about the consequences of it, or you don't care to think that far ahead.

Posted March 24th by mariomguy

I see everything because I am a global user and I use newest replies to navigate. World honestly does have very little to offer my life though, I agree. But I'm always gonna see it anyway.

Should make world invisible on newest replies. Make you have to actually click on world to see newest replies there.

Change the "Block Mode" to "Hide Posts Entirely".

This option has been in place since the feature's release, incidentally...

Also, the "probation" idea is, to put it lightly, bizarre. In a lot of more minor situations, it might be conducive to working things out, but some people need to block others that are just entirely toxic to them.

The probation idea has yet to be used. It's there for situations where someone has fucked up and gotten blocked by everyone and wants a second chance -- there are some pretty dire consequences if they fuck up a second time.

I'm pretty sure Jubei blocked me since he never replies when I reply to him


Jubei is not blocking you.

Maybe not the right post, but also want to note that I accidentally reported a post once and couldn't un-report it.


I'll fix that when I upgrade the reports system, thanks!

You can ignore people *without* a block feature (including using the filter feature), blocking just automates the process.

It's good on social media but not here.


Reddit has a block feature too. I wouldn't consider it a social network.

You will lose more people and more social interaction


If by "social interaction" you mean "drama that spills over and drags the rest of the site down" then I'll be glad if the feature prevents that.

Precisely why people should do that or if you actually want to avoid drama don't show them that they have been blocked which I wouldn't say is a good idea either because then people will just get paranoid if someone starts ignoring them anyway like in this thread.

If by "social interaction" you mean "drama that spills over and drags the rest of the site down" then I'll be glad if the feature prevents that.


In case you haven't noticed that happened as a result of the feature existing several times. Not even just in feedback. But whatever I guess.

I was wrong, you *can* unreport a post, but you have to refresh the page first.
