Is there a way to block unwanted PMs?

Postby Jamie » 08 Aug 2015, 21:30

There's a member here that for some reason thinks it's acceptable to message me with shit all the time and I'd really love it to stop. Any feature that will help?

When you're in your Private Messages, look to the left of the screen for 'Rules, folders & settings' and click it.

You're taken to the 'Rules, folders & settings' page, where you can add a rule to stop a certain member from being able to PM you.

ADD NEW RULE
If:
Select 'Sender' from the drop down box, then click Next
Select 'Is' from the next drop down box, click Next.
Write the user's name in the box provided, click Next.
Select 'Delete message' from the drop down box, and finally click 'Add Rule'

Whenever this particular user messages you, I presume it'll be deleted immediately and you won't be notified that you got a PM. (I've never actually done this before so I'm not sure if you're notified or not, I'm going to assume you wouldn't be). Also I'm not sure whether the user in question would realise that their message wasn't getting sent.

I hope that helps!
