Stopping someone from posting on my Builder's Progress and non technical messages" page

Post by Capt UB » Sat Feb 23, 2019 7:34 am

Would like to stop someone from posting on my
"Builder's Progress and non technical messages" page. Any other area is fine if he wants to reply, just don't want him posting on my building page.

Hi CaptUB! I'm not real familiar with the inner technical workings of the forum but thought I remembered seeing a friends and foes tab or something like that.

I will never understand why some feel the need to sow discontent on this forum. We should only post things that help build up boats and each other. Right?

Build on UB!

Thanks Capeman.
I was just searching for that option: I knew it existed but forgot where it was.

About blocking someone: it works but you may miss some good input from that person. He may aggravate you at times but be knowledgeable.
When you block him, it is not limited to a particular forum or thread, it's every post that is blocked.

Sometimes when a person makes an annoying post; the best thing to do Capt is a simple ignore.

It is when we reply to everything when calamity occurs.

If someone makes an offensive post on your thread; you can ask them to remove it as well.

There are different ways other than angry bans. It should be a last resort.

All the best.

Very true, I have been guilty of that but I don't get in troubles anymore since I decided never to post on the forum after an adult drink.

The ironic part of this situation is that the perp in question was singlehandly responsible for Bateau’s decision to create the builder experience tag.
The concept, (great idea by the way), was to give some credibility to those who have actually built real boats.
