    block based on what?

    does adding the user to ignore list prevent pms?

    Good questions - open ones really - though I suspect EP will confirm the latter and I am guessing he will say yes. But surely this would not meet the requirement Venom had, and if you PM someone ignoring you then are you told the PM is not being delivered? I think the blocking I had in mind was to inform both parties that messaging was not going to happen....

    As far as I know, the only settings for PMs are on and off...

    ah yes Derek - but there is also a Buddy/Ignore list and this is what Khayman was getting at - if I put you on my ignore list and then you PM me what happens? (Not that I am going to do that, because then I would not see this post from you either!)

    I knew that is what he was referring to, I was just chiming in ;)

    I just added your AIM account to my buddy list. I will block you on the forum, and then send you an AIM message when it has been done. Once that occurs, send me a PM, then a message on AIM, and we can figure it out :)

    Trial and error baby, trial and error :)

    Never got the PM, and you've been unblocked.

    Only thing I would say about that is maybe the sender should get an error message, or some other type of feedback?

    So just to check MFG, is this the behaviour you wanted?

    I was not really "wanting" just saw there could be a case for it (I'm actually not ignoring anyone so far as I remember!) and so IF it was there I thought it should maybe operate like this, but with the additional funcionality of advising the sender their PM was "blocked" or "not sent"...

    Yeah when I had him blocked and he sent me the PM, there was no notice on his end to let him know it was blocked or not received, and it didn't bounce back. It must have gone off to PM heaven :p
