## Destinyyyy one year ago Why does the block user button not work?

IDK

2. ♪Chibiterasu

It works for me.

3. anonymous

It actually blocked the person? You can no longer see them and they cant post on your questions?

4. Nnesha

if you block the user they will not be able to send DM(direct msgz) /can't become ur fan you will not get tag notification from that person

5. Nnesha

They can post a comment on ur question :D

6. anonymous

Well that's dumb.. Blocking someone should not allow them to comment on my questions or allow me to see them. What if your being harassed or bullied? Are you just suppose to be okay with them continuing to post on your questions?

7. Nnesha

hmm report or if mods are online tag their username or send them a msg

8. anonymous

I have.. @myininaya removed several spam posts by two users who would not stop posting on my question and the one kept accusing me of cheating and saying I was breaking the rules by asking people to give me their opinions on my essay.

The block button only blocks the person from messaging you. Nothing else.

10. anonymous

Then the block button is useless. You can go to notifications and set it to only allow people who you are a fan of to message you. If im blocking someone im not going to be their fan. Honestly the block user button should be removed or changed so that it does what people would assume it does. Like I did at first. Usually a block button actually blocks the person you are wanting blocked. Example facebook.

11. pooja195

Openstudy is not FB....if you tried to block a person so that you can never see them then posts would be messed up here's an example |dw:1441415796642:dw| Or in the chats.... http://prntscr.com/8cqbpu See the posts done make much sense do they? :c

12. pooja195

*don't

13. pooja195

I hope that makes sense.

$$\color{blue}{\text{Originally Posted by}}$$ @Destinyyyy Well that's dumb.. Blocking someone should not allow them to comment on my questions or allow me to see them.

But i'm not agree with blocked users shouldn't be able to post comment on ur question here is a reason 4 months ago ) there was a user who blocked me cuz i wasn't giving her the answer so i think it would be the good idea for those users who always looking for the answer (not the explanation) they can easily block the person who was trying to explain and welcome the DA man into the thred

15. Nnesha

which is not gO_Od!

16. anonymous

True. But what if your being harassed or bullied? Do you have to put up with the user posting non-stop on your questions?

17. pooja195

Pm a mod. If we make block buttons so that people cant comment on your post then your post would make no sense as i showed u.

18. Nnesha

if mods are not online guess what is best! ignore him for few mints

19. pooja195

Block! Report! Ignore! XD

20. anonymous

Yes I saw and read all that. But it could work if it was set up right.. And I did have a mod do that @myininaya did. She removed quite a few posts and told them to stop but they kept going.

21. pooja195

At that point the best thing to do is ignore.

22. anonymous

I've tried that. And the girl kept going.

23. pooja195

Well if it's getting to you then you aren't ignoring well enough.

24. anonymous

Guess Ill just bug mods till they responde and remove the posts :/

25. anonymous

Its kinda hard to fully ignore when your asking for people to give their opinions on an important essay and when my notifications and email keep going off.

26. pooja195

The internet should not ruin your happiness if you are bugged by these people pm the person tell them to stop (nicely) if they dont listen simply report and leave it to the mods if nothing happens ignore. If its getting to you then its your fault....you shouldnt let people get to you like that and ik how you feel you aren't the only one who has gone through this i understand but theres really not much to do. Mods do their best but at the end of the day being a mod is voluntary right? They cant be here 24/7 so your best bet is to... $$\huge\color{red}{IGNORE~:)}$$

27. anonymous

I dont see how something bothering me becomes my fault but ok.

28. pooja195

I didnt mean it in that sense. What i meant is if something is bothering you, then you can't blame the other person for their actions bothering you its your fault for letting it get to you right? :P Anyways bottom line the block button works.

29. anonymous

Okay. So your saying when shes bullying me and harassing me I shouldnt blame her for her doing that? The next time it happens (the third time) Ill make sure to tag you with the mods so that you can see whats being said.

30. pooja195

I have been through this I dont mean to argue with you. Its the internet things happen ignore them.

31. Nnesha

i'll suggest you to send a direct msg cuz sometimes(most of de time) tag a mod doesn't work!

32. anonymous

I noticed that.. But a few of the mods have their messages blocked (only people they fan can message them) so thats a bit difficult to do..

33. anonymous

Well the next time it happens or I see it happening ill tag every mod I can find and message them.

34. pooja195

Don't mass tag thats against the Code Of Conduct. Also mods have the right to do what they want as they are users of the site too.

35. anonymous

I hate when people mass tag..

36. pooja195

*same rights as normal users Right.

37. anonymous

Can ambassador do anything or just mods?

38. pooja195

Just mods. Ambassadors DO NOT have any types of powers.

39. pooja195

Atleast you dont go through what i go through :) I get called stupid just because i make a post to get math help (on OS) just because im a qualified helper. Im qualified to help not answer the worlds questions im not some genius.

40. anonymous

god will provide justice :) just be patient
