Does it do anything? There's a dude on the forums requesting to be actively ignored, and, being new here, I thought I'd ingratiate myself by being a good sport and obliging. However, at a similar forum I visit, it's a hilarious joke button or something?

Should I press the button here, or am I just setting myself up for disappointment?

Thanks in advance!

I would love to be able to block a user or two, but it doesn't seem to work. Will this ever be implemented?

I've often wanted a functional block button.

I really hope so!

If they still haven't managed to fix the videos on a video website, I doubt this will ever come

Just adding the ability to block or mute specific users who you don't want to see in the live chat and the forums

Are we ever going to be able to block users we don't agree with then? This was asked 2 years ago and still not even a yes/no

I can re-ping @dtoast, but this was determined to be a niche and low priority concern and with threaded forums, it would also require a re-design of threads.

I just want to block/hide someone in the livestreams. They ruin every chat they're in, which is all of them, because I think the think they're friends with the staff

@sombre: If you have an ad-blocker that allows blocking specific page elements, it may be possible to setup a filter to block messages from this person you don't like.

Okay, so, this is new to me because I and @dtoast were under the impression your request was about forum posts and comments on the physical site and classified your request as such. Blocking/muting people in a live chat could be easier, but I also know things are being toyed with on the site chat.

Nonetheless, we can get your feature request logged in next week, but I cannot promise a timetable.
