Friends List Now A Blocked List?
Posted 19 January 2007 - 05:12 PM
Wonderent sent me a PM telling me that somehow her friends list in her profile are now blocked. I sent her a reply and got this,
"This member has chosen not to be contactable by the board Messenger
This personal message has not been sent"
Sooooooo, something got goofed up somewhere, probably a quirk in the latest upgrade? Can it be fixed? And if not, how does one go about "unblocking" someone? (I've never blocked anybody!)
Thanks a million!

I deleted all on the block list and created a new friends list.
To help me to recieve PM's, Jeff increased the maximum storable messages from 30 to 40.

Is this fixable from your end Jeff, or will each person have to go through (if they realize this) and fix it?

Sent Liz a PM (with copy below to save time and effort on my part) to test things out but my block/allow list is a bigger mess if it is same list just exchanged blocked to messages allowed on it.!!! I am to nearsighted to easily see what is going on and not a very happy camper at this point, though when I was here about 10 days ago, I couldn't even find new messages at top right to do PMs as usual, so I guess things have improved since then. Sigh!!!
Copy of my PM to Liz, just in case she doesn't get it and since it pertains to this problem.
I haven't had a chance to come back over here for about 10 days, so am still at a loss about some of the new stuff Jeff put in.
I saw your thread about friends blocked instead of allowed, checked out my list and all were blocked, tried to unblock you and Jeff to start with, but it only allowed the rest of my list not you two. So I figured I could delete the two and start over but it wont allow me to add you two again. Sigh. Says it is the block list but says messages allowed? What's with that?
The boards were nice, fast, and efficient before, so why did whoever owns the software for the board system feel like adding all the bloated stuff to slow things way down (especially slow for me on dialup I noticed last time I was here) and make other things go haywire...?
New and improved seldom is in my opinion. Oh well.
Sigh....to bad it is my favorite board, and that I just don't have the patience or time to monkey around trying to figure out how to fix the broken stuff, etc.
I will copy/paste this to your thread along with trying to send it as a PM to test it and will try tracking it too.
God bless everyone

Sorry I'm such a grouch...again...!!!
Just didn't expect to have that particular problem.
Did some experimenting, after I had another cup of coffee, to see if I could find an easy way to add the people back into my friends list. Found out I can click on their name on the block page to bring up their profile and then below their avatar/egghead/MrPotatoHead picture there is an add to friends list thingy to click on. So got nearly everyone back on friends list except a couple that seem to be but they didn't show up when I went to next person. Maybe I should have waited until page fully loaded instead of jumping to add them??? Patience is not my middle name that's for sure, nor following instructions!?! Anyhow will check later before I delete all those on block list.
God bless everyone
