I look at the ignore list and not being able to post in every single members thread just like real life. in real life there are people that we dont want to be friends with or engage in conversation with and there are people who do not want to be my friend and engage in conversation with me... does that mean I cry and ask someone to force the other to have contact with me or have someone force me to have contact with them.... of course not. in real life its just normal to know people who I dont like and dont want to have contact with and its normal for me to know people who do not like me and dont want contact with me....
Definitely agree! 100%. But this thread is not about why people do or don't block each other, or why people should or shouldn't block. It's about the ability to participate.

The OP of that thread is definitely 100% entitled to block whoever she wants. We all want to have a good experience on this site, and if blocking certain members helps, then I say go for it. Tailor your experience to your liking because this site is meant to be a positive place where we can all feel safe and get the support we deserve.

However, WC here wants to participate in a thread that she was previously allowed to participate in and enjoyed participating in, but now she cannot simply b/c the thread has changed ownership.

I would argue it's a community thread b/c that's how the first two were designed to be. The third one (this one) is designed to be no different. It's just a revitalization of the previous thread, except under a new owner.

then maybe we are talking about different threads lol sorry for misunderstanding....

my suggestion is contact a moderator. Reason I say this is if I remember right somewhere it does say if a thread reaches 100 the mods close the thread and open another one so that its not a situation of someone else starting another thread who may have people on ignore. let them know what thread has changed hands and they may be able to help sort things out.

Yeah that ignore feature sucks a bit if a member posts a kuddo regarding another member that I can't reply to. Anywhooooo ... it's an imperfect system but it's designed to do the best it can do and I've been told to just restart a thread or something along those lines ...

It looks like the post you were referring to has been closed.

Heart Re: Starting community participation threads - blocked members

The original intention of this thread is: Awareness.

It was my intention to make members aware that if they start a community-oriented participation thread, members on the OP's "ignore" list will be blocked from participating in the community-oriented thread.

I feel my point/intention has been made successfully.

Thanks so much for feedback.

I didn't read this as being the "intention"....

Maybe some others misinterpreted it, too.

So glad you are able to make your point clearly.
