Ignoring UsersRegister Today!
- by Glad2baRN Jan 16, '12I did a search to find info on this and couldn't find it. I've never had to ignore users since joining AN, but recently I had to. I have a couple of questions regarding that option.
When ignoring a user, I have that option not to view their posts, but are THEY able to view mine? Do they see that message stating, User has Ignored you?
Do they still have the option to click on my username to view my profile if placed on my ignore list? Are they able to send me a PM?
I ask because when I ignore a user, I want to make sure they have no way of contacting me via other ways on here. Don't worry, I've never been stalked on here and don't think I ever will.

- Jan 16, '12 by Joe VNo message is displayed. The ignored user will have no clue that you placed them on your ignore list.
The Ignore List only works one way - for you. It does not affect what the other person see or reads.
Knowing the above ... Yes, they will be able to see your profile. You can however, restrict who sees your profile picture, contact info, about me, and friends list via Privacy settings (Edit Settings). For those you wish reading access, you will need to set them as Friends or Contacts and set this option via Privacy Settings.
NOTE: A Contact is someone you are following but is not a friend. This could be where the other person does not accept the friendship or you do not wish to be friends at this time but want to show them as a contact only.
They can send private message but it will not reach you. (I believe a message is displayed stating that you do not wish to receive private messages from anyone - not sure on this.)
