if there is some kind of personal problem between you or others (this goes for anyone) then perhaps its best to leave it off the forums and try and sort it amicably via PMs. I know we can't all get along, but we can at least try.

 

Thank you.


 

I've been advised by another mod to take that route and tried it before. However the other person just came here to rally support with a fairly abusive thread that wasn't exactly, er, truthful.

 

The thread was brought to my attention by a friend due to the hostile nature of it, but it was closed before I had a chance to reply, although I did have enough time to see just how many GD regulars jumped in to lend support. It's understandable as they are popular, and I am not, but it is indicative that PMs backfire.

 

So in the end, I wouldn't recommend the PM approach. However, the forum does have an "ignore" feature, which it might be best to recommend instead?

 

I'm trying it out to see if it works...

Re: PM resolution

Cheers Smiley Happy

 

Hope you guys can get along in future - can't force anyone to get along obviously but I just don't want people scared off of GD, that is my main concern Smiley Happy

 

Have a nice evening and weekend guys!!

Flying High!

Re: PM resolution

You can't ignore posts. It ignored personal messages from the person, not posts/threads made by them.

I have you on ignore and it works fine, I haven't seen a post of yours in weeks. Same with Danny, we all should ignore him too.

Re: PM resolution

I assumed it ignored posts as well, I dunno I have never done it.

I would be cautious of the PM approach, I have heard that it can get nasty and it becomes your word against theirs.

Can't people just agree to disagree or just decided "I think that person is a tool, I will ignore their posts that I dislike as they are a tool and/or troll"

And I've been sending you many pictures of my botty in the bath.

 

Ah well, I'll send them to Spotter instead, at least he'll appreciate my botty
