Seriously, this is a basic forum feature and the fact that this site didn't have it from the very begining is beyond mind boggling. A user should be able to block another user so that they don't see their posts, messages or status updates, and make it so that anyone on their block list cannot contact them.

Mods don't want to do it.


You do realize that Mahz pretty much single handedly coded everything for this forum, as well as pay for the domain, right? He has a life outside of The Guild. It takes a lot of time to code anything new into the formatting because it causes bugs, crashes, etc. It's not that the mods don't want to do it, it's that it takes time. It's been discussed in a lot of other threads, and the topic has just been beaten to death guys. Seriously.

You can hide the status bar. If the status bar is the reason you feel the need for a block feature, you'll have to grow a much thicker skin to venture into the rest of The Guild, much less the official discord.

@HaleyTheRandom On the topic of Mahz coding the forum, let me further add that the block feature requested would have to be coded from the ground up since the guild is running on his code instead of like Xenforo e.g. RPNation or Iwaku. It's not some addon feature he can add with a click of a button.

Don't think Mahz has an intention to write a block feature any time soon. As mentioned above,the guild isn't an site where you can import a feature or add-on, it's a fully custom built site that needs a programmer to make adjustments. None of the mods are programmers.

If you find someone is harassing you though, PM a moderator with the information of what is happening.

I agree, @Zenra! There is just too much bad content on our Guild! Take the crayons away from these dirty-minded perverts! Nobody wants to read a bunch of gross tripe on this good old website. People who post gross stuff on our website are just trash on the side of the information superhighway if you ask me. Time to put these digital litterbugs out to pasture! WHO'S WITH ME?!

Let it be noted that mods literally can't even do it. Aside from not being selected for programming competence, they aren't given the power, period.

There is still this which used to be accessible through the site but I can no longer find it so Mahz might have removed it. Not that it got any use. It was dead space.

For a long time the guild did not have a 'delete PM' functionality and we had to beg on our knees to get it. Unfortunately this was the last time I remember there being a feature update, unless we count perhaps the removal of the old (dead) persistent world that somehow took up the spotlight of the forum and the creation of the new (slightly less dead) persistent world forum.

The trade-off we have for awesome features like topics with 3 tabs and a rad PM system is that literally everything else is fucking broken or missing. Did you know you can search for roleplays by tags? I didn't until Mahz himself pointed it out.

The fact of the matter is that RPG is low on the priority list for Mahz because, well, life. The alternative is going to a more active forum and missing out on a lot of the features that make RPG so appealing. I really believe that the only reason RPG can stay afloat at this point is the superior UI, the 3-tab topic system and just the ease at which everything works here. If it weren't for those things, RPG would be like any other forum.

Yes. This would be great. I would be blocking so many cocky idiots who can't leave me alone if their life depended on it.
