Being blocked question

    The only way for you to see what they're saying is if they unblocked you for some time.

    I just went into another party. I could see everything she said. I checked and she has me blocked. So there is something going on with the blocking feature.

    JanLee,

    I reported this and was told that they don't plan to change it. As it is now, when a person blocks someone else, they will no longer see their comments, but the blocked person can still see comments by the blocker. Blocking only prevents the Blocker from seeing comments.

    The workaround I was given to block communication in both directions was to "Block and Report" the person and put something like this in the Description in the report: "Ignore this report. I just don't want this person to see what I say, just as I can’t see what they say when I block them."

    I've blocked (Reported) three players in this manner. It might be months before I ever see confirmation that it worked, but Kittens of Doom said this should work to keep either party from seeing each other's comments in both directions.

    Wish us luck!

    I've double-checked this, and CruisinPast is correct. Sorry about that!

    i wish they would go back to the old way ..when someone is blocked they do not get charms you toss...there is a reason for blocking someone

    I don't care who gets the charms I rarely toss in anybody's party. It's like casting bread upon water. Once I toss it, I just hope some life form, from the ducks and geese through all the organisms even down to the lowest of the low, will use it up.

    Well, okay, it's not exactly like that, as nobody on here is the lowest of the low. Still, I don't care who gets any charms I toss. In a party, it doesn't cost me any more to give to 25 attendees than it does to give to 20. But, when I use the extreme measure to block someone (also quite rare), seeing comments is another matter. I want to ignore in both directions. I don't want to see their comments and I don't want them to see mine, which evidently only works in the workaround I mentioned in my earlier post above.

    Well, CruisinPast, I certainly respect your opinion, but I agree with lilly96. The only time I've blocked anyone (except one person who was a party spammer) is because we were in a "toss" party and they didn't toss. So say it was a 3x yacht toss, names called, and Player XYZZYX didn't toss when their name was called. If they get skipped in the hope they come back, they are getting the benefit of the party without spending the required gems. This unfortunately happens as you know. Maybe the host doesn't know how to boot them from the party? But it happens. So I'd like to see a way where they don't get the benefit of the party tosses if they're not following the party rules.

    What about being blocked for a ridiculous reason?? I was blocked because she didn't like my avatar. I didn't do anything to her at all. I really don't care if she blocked me, but why should I have to be locked out of getting charms because of that?  I always toss if I'm at a tossing party. I even sometimes toss at gng parties. I'm sure I'm not the only one that has been blocked for something so ridiculous. So I have to agree with Cruisin.

    As long as your in a party you get all the charms thrown if your blocked or not.  If your blocked then you don't see there partys on the board if they hosting

    Oh I know Michael. I was just saying to the folks that wanted it to go back to the old way of withholding charms.

    I'm with you JanLee.  I've come across people that have me blocked and I don't know who they are or why they blocked me.  I toss when required, and if I'm in a party where everyone is tossing, I join in.

    Question - How can we know a player has us blocked?

    k9 When you click to view their profile it will say you can't see it because they have you blocked.

    Jan Lee...i don't block just to block...i've only blocked maybe 2-3 players since being here almost 3 yrs...and crusing past i know it doesn't cost anymore to toss to 25 than to 20 players...if they block you for something stupid like not likeing your avi then they don't deserve your charms in return...just my opinion..it goes both ways...the people who have blocked you don't get the charms you toss and vice versa...i charm good at parties and i will help anyone out if i can and have...why would i want someone who has me blocked to have the charms i toss...they blocked me why should i help them?...don't mean to sound mean but it's just the way it is
