Muting users in 1.7


(Charles Walter) #1

Thought I’d break this into a new topic. Im getting ready to communicate to our users soon about the mute users feature added in 1.7. Sounds very practical

From what I read @zogstrip it sounds like the main benefits are

  • blocking users from sending PMs
  • avoiding notifications on the user’s posts where you are mentioned but not participating
  • avoiding notifications if the user likes your posts

Am i missing anything? Does it stop email notifications if the user replies to your topic? (This might be helpful for future to avoid unwanted :fire:)

Would be curious if any other community admins have heard feedback from their users on this feature. My sense is our users will be very pleased

You get zero notifications from a user you have muted. Zero. None.

Great @codinghorror! Does that apply to email notifications as well?


(Jeff Atwood) #4

It should yes. Mailing list mode might be an exception.

did this get implemented and then removed?

No it did not get implemented and then removed.
