My Block List list is full?

[ Edited ]
27 Replies 1,547 Views edited 16-12-2011

Not sure where this should have been posted, so i apologise in advance if it has to be moved.

................................

 

Anyway,

 

Why is there a limit on people i can block?

 

I have the list maxed out but there's still more people i would have liked to have added to it, there's ~77 million users on Playstation Network?, so at least 500 would have been a good idea, I'm sure the block lists would take up memory/resources on the server, so if this limit could be increased without making a drain on these resources then please do guys, I dont block people who talk trash, we all do at some point and I'm old enough to deal with it, i only block those i know to be cheating and the racists, if you cant talk trash to each other without resorting to racists remarks then its a major fail.

 

What does blocking someone do besides stopping messages from them?,

does it make it less likely to put you in a match with someone you've blocked?,

I know it doesnt perma mute them like on xbox, because there have been quite a few times on Call of dooty where i have been put into the same game as some one i just blocked a few days/weeks before, but that would be a nice addition.

 

Also, the complaints proceedure needs to be easier to access, and during a game (if it's not already), as there has been plenty of people deserving of being reported but by the time you get to the XMB, you cant remember if it was iIIxXPrOSnIPeZXxIIi or IiiXxPrOsNIPeZxXiiI :Lol: and in my case anyway, I'd only be reporting serious cheaters and foul mouthed racists,, not trash talkers who throw verbal abuse at me as i can handle that, plus it's funny sometimes.

 

 

A suggestion I'd like to make, would be to give a reason why you're blocking someone, then that reason you give would be passed on as a complaint, no?

Yup, sure is,, i dont have the PS3 on at the mo, but i think the limit is 100.


Hi guys,

 

Just so you know the limit for the amount of users you can block is 50, and this figure cannot be increased. The blocking feature is to be used in circumstances where a user maybe be messaging you when this is unwanted, in most cases removing them from your friends list is the best course of action.

 

Any queries let me know,

 

Rabid

If someone sends me abuse, I just delete the message and move on, and they don't bother me again.

it's not as you don't get new friends adding you if you block none friends from messaging you.

 

Much prefer to block people the old way and take the limmit away as it is badly thought out TBH.

Friend requests still come through, don't they?

There's a separate setting, so I thought they still came through.

Blocking idiots is uber cool. I jump at the chance to delete/block people who tread on my toes.

Twitter was fun this morning.

This is another type of moron I'd add to the block list, invite spammers.

I'm not bothered by people who just send abusive messages sometimes its just funny but still notbothered either way about it, unless its full of racist nonsense at which point they'd be blocked and reported.
