Technical glitch -
1. Tag notifications aren't working.
Conflict avoidance -
2. Alongside flag button, please provide a mute button as well. Pressing mute button against user X by user Y shall make user X's posts invisible to user Y only, without letting user X or anybody(barring user Y, ofcourse) know about who muted whom and when. Thus, avoiding conflict. And will ease the workload of moderators. There will be option to unmute as well. Moderators will neither be allowed to mute, nor get muted.
(I know a website that has this feature, and it helps in conflict avoidance to a great deal. Can share the website in private messaging, if you'd like to.)
User preferences -
3. Similarly, please provide a hide button alongside every thread but announcement threads. Pressing the hide button will make the thread invisible to the user who pressed the button, and will make space for subsequent thread, supposedly preferred by that user. A mathematics optional guy can simply hide the medical science question paper discussion thread, and vice versa, and so on. There will be option to undo the hide button. And again, moderators won't be provided with this button, for obvious reasons.
(This was a query that the user called Wakaao had too.)
4. A block button in private messaging.
P.S. - I love ForumIAS.
And kindly avoid comments, if any, that do not sound to be in good taste.
Further recommendations/editing to my points welcomed.
And moderator, feel free to close the thread if deemed unnecessary.
It's time i left.
