Ignore feature...

Post by Gforceuk » Sat Mar 01, 2008 12:00 am

Is there one at all out of interest , so you cant see certain members posts ?

I've seen it on other forums , just not noticed it on here.

if you saw my post about phpBB3 Gforce you will know that this site is converting within 2 months

one of the features of phpBB3 is precisely as you described above

any member will be able to specify another member as a "foe"

the forums then hide all the posts made by that "foe" from the member concerned

when I realised what was coming I could not believe my eyes but this is an actual real facilty!!

you have the option of selecting members as "foes" or "friends" but what it does when you make a person "a friend" I don't know!!

maybe it enlarges all the "friends" posts ten times bigger!! :twisted:

but the friend/foe is a different slant on a basic feature... he he

Gforce are you narked? :D
Foes are users which will be ignored by default. Posts by these users will not be fully visible. Personal messages from foes are still permitted. Please note that you cannot ignore moderators or administrators.
have looked it up

it says "Posts by these users will not be fully visible." whatever that means

I think it means you see the fact someone has posted , but not the content of the post..

haha they obviously agonised over that one

must have been a committee decision :P

in documentation phpBB3 says
5.3.4. Friends and Foes
TODO: (Not sure if this deserves its own section yet. For 3.0 this does not have much of an influence on the overall forum experience, this might change with 3.2, so leaving it here for now.) Write a detailed explanation about what Friends and Foes are and how they affect the forum like hiding posts of foes, adding users to the friends list for fast access / online checks, and so forth.
it talks of 3.2 and phpBB3 is now at 3.0 (since Dec 07) so maybe a 3.2 would do more

but this is odd talking of 3.2 when the code is still at 3.0

THAT I cannot understand :shock:
