How to use the Ignore Feature by Pikochu

While the goal of the Bulbagarden forums is to interact with other members of the community, there may be times that you may not want to see a user's post anymore anywhere on the forums. This is where the "ignore" feature will come in handy. This feature blocks their posts from your view, blocks your posts from them or send you PMs.

Note: You cannot "ignore" any staff member. If you have an issue with a staff member, refer to the staff chart to contact the staff member one level up (Example: If there's an issue with a moderator, contact the super moderator of that section).

Ignoring a user via post

To block a user using their post, follow these instructions:

Note: The screenshots may not look exactly like yours depending on your style preferences. However, the steps are the same for all the Bulbagarden styles.

Step 1: Click or Hover to their username (boxed in red) in the post. A box should appear above or below their user name like in the screenshot below:


Step 2: Click on the "ignore" box/button (boxed in red).


Step 3: The "ignore" button should go from "ignore" to "unignore." You have successfully blocked that user! A screenshot is shown below to show you have successfully blocked that user! Changes are boxes in red.


Changed your mind?

To unblock a user, follow Steps 1 and 2 above, but instead of clicking "ignore," just click "unignore." The button should change from "unignore" to "ignore." You have successfully unblocked that user!

Ignoring a user via profile

To ignore a user using their profile, follow these steps.

Step 1: Go to the user's profile that you want to block.

Step 2: Click on the "ignore" box/button (boxed in red).


Step 3: The "ignore" button should go from "ignore" to "unignore." You have successfully blocked that user! A screenshot is shown below to show you have successfully blocked that user! Changes are boxes in red.

To unblock a user, follow Steps 1 and 2 above, but instead of clicking "ignore," just click "unignore." The button should change from "unignore" to "ignore." You have successfully unblocked that user!

Unignoring a user

To unignore a user, do the following:

Step 1: On the upper right-hand corner, click on your profile name (boxed in red below).


Step 2: After you click, a menu should pop-up. In the menu, click on "Ignoring" which should redirect you to a list of users that you ignored.


Step 3: From this list of users, just click "Unblock" on the users that you want to unblock. You have unsuccessfully unblocked that user when that user is no longer on the list. That's it!


Questions?

Hopefully, this guide helps you use the ignore feature! If you have further questions or unsure about something about the ignore feature or just need help figuring it out? Feel free to contact staff member and we will do our best to answer your questions!

See you around the forums!
