Blocking users in Community / HigherLogic

    Hi.

    I have a question: Can I block individual users on this platform so I don't see their posts?

    If not, can other account types with more extensive permissions block select user content from showing up for them?

    Thanks.

    # no configurables beyond this point, only signature

    Does using the slide show widget for posting individual images spread Corona? Don't take the risk, use the "insert image" button in the editor!

    Did you know? I will NOT respond to PM asking for help unless there's an actual reason to keep the discussion off of the public forums!

    @Carsten Schmitz  - No and No -  super admins can flag users to send all of their posts to moderation.   This tool is for users with one strike - posting spam or something inappropriate or ads.   No blocking of users.

    What is your thought process here?

    ​Thanks.

    Was just wondering if I couldn't find a button for it, or if it didn't exist. Thought I had seen a button before, but I must be wrong.

    We have filters and stop words to flag posts from going live but this site as many professional technical sites are self-moderated.   If you see a SPAM post or someone posting something they shouldn't all Community Members should Flag it as Inappropriate - that sent to Admin Moderation where we determine if the post should be rejected or restored based on the content.    If the tool is being abused by users sending posts to Moderatrion that Community can be banned.
