Managing Who Contacts You On NT

Recently, it has come to my attention that members are receiving unwanted messages either through "Chat" or "Private Notes". You can manage who contacts you on both of these. 

Private Notes

If you don't want notes from a specific member do this:

  • Go to Private Notes
  • In the upper right corner you will see a button called "Settings". Click on it. A new screen will appear.
  • In the box that says "blocked users" copy the name exactly and paste it into the box. If you have several people you want block, remember to enter them, one per line.
  • Click "Save Changes" and you are done.
  • To remove a blocked person, just go back to settings > blocked user and remove the name and then remember to click "Saved Changes.

Chat

If you don't want a specific member from contacting you on chat do this:

  • First, that member must be showing on chat. You will need to click on their name and bring up a chat with them. 
  • On the upper right corner of the chat is a gear. Click on it.
  • In the dialog box, you will see "Block User" ( it appears twice, so use the first one)
  • Click on that, and you are done.
  • To unblock a user go to the bottom of "Who's Online and click the gear at the bottom of the box. 
  • Then click on Manage blocked users.
  • In the new dialog box, you will see your blocked users. To unblock them click on Unblock user. 

If you have any other questions about these functions please feel free ask.

I didn't know this was that much of a problem. No one hardly ever talks to me in the PNs.

I am just not very popular I guess...

there's a limit on the number of people you can block in chat, and I assume in PN too...

Vic, 

I am not intentionally forgetting. I just don't remember. Too much happens here that I am involved with to remember every event here.

I have no problem with PNs, but I never initiate a "chat" and I would prefer to never be the recipient of one.  The font is so small I can't read it without using a magnifying glass, and when I type a reply it is the same so I can't see what I've written and I know I make lots of mistakes.  If possible, I would like to know how to disable "chat" permanently - if anyone has anything personal to say to me, they can send me a PN, which also gives me time to think about a reply.

I guess nobody knows how to opt out of chat entirely.

Since nobody knows how to opt out of chat, I guess the only answer that might have the same result is to ignore any attempted contact notwithstanding that could be considered insulting.   I think there should be a method to block the use of it with a notice provided to those who attempt to contact the person who blocks it to say that chat has been disabled by that person.

The chat function seems to me akin to the office water-cooler talk space except you can easily block individuals from approaching your cooler without a cross check or forearm shiver.  Can the mods, or you Perrie, block access to the cooler for repeat offenders,  i.e. can the chat feature be disabled for those who use it to spread hate or vulgar content? 

The Private Notes area seems to me to be like Hillary's email server.  Everything is just fine until Wiki-Leaks gets a hold of it.  In this case the recipient/victim of the nasty PN could, and I would argue should be allowed to, be the Wiki-Leak. I think I saw something like that happen here recently.  Blocking a user from one's PN area is fine, but typically this happens after the first few offensive messages are already left.  I think it is fair that in addition to being blocked by their victims such abusers of the feature should be outed and perhaps have their PN privileges revoked by the site for repeat offenses, if possible. 

Unfortunately these sorts of things are patterns for some folks who portray an innocence of sorts in the open forum, but then go all Vlad the Impaler in the chat or PN areas.

yeah it works for me , about the only thing i could say or think of is once someone is blocked from seeing their posts , it also blocks the ability to message in any way , but that would be considered streamlining, and the couple extra steps to do the same in messaging isn't difficult .
