    Good day, sluts students.

    Because I have seen so many people misunderstanding the "Hidden/Deleted member", thinking they've been blocked, I wanted to spare lots of you some drama by giving a thorough explanation of Site Blocks and Forum Blocks/Ignores.

    Today's lesson will include terminology, a description of each block, the effects noticed by each person, and how to undo a block.

    Terminology:
    Forum Block: When you click "Ignore His Posts" next to a forum post by a RealJock member. The effects of this are limited to the forum.
    Site Block: When you go to a fellow member's profile page and click "Block him". This applies mostly to non-forum interaction.
    Hidden Profile: In preferences, you can temporarily hide your own profile and forum posts.
    Blocker: The term I will use for the person who clicks "Block him" or "Ignore His Posts"
    Blockee: The term I will use for the person who got blocked.
    Hider: A member who has made his profile Hidden.


    Forum Block/Ignore:
    Blockee:
    Can see anything the Blocker posts, as well as the name and profile picture next to each post.
    Will notice: no change except possibly -> 1. Never being quoted by Blocker. 2. Blocker will never respond to topics made by Blockee.

    Blocker:
    Can't see anything Blockee posts in topics.
    In the forum list, when Last Post is by Blockee, Blocker sees "Hidden/Deleted Member".
    Can't see any topics created by Blockee.
    Can view the Blockee's forum activity via the profile.


    Profile Block:
    Blockee:
    Sees Blocker's profile and unlocked photos.
    Can submit testimonials and photo comments but they will be immediately deleted. If unblocked, they're still gone with no notification to Blocker.
    Can send Blocker IMs but Blocker will never receive them.
    Can send PM but message isn't delivered to Blocker. (no notification that it wasn't)
    Can Hotlist or Buddy List. No notification given to Blocker, but is shown in list of "Guys who think I'm hot" searches. Hotlisting and mutual buddy listing is shown on profile.
    No changes in forum visibilty or interaction.
    Will notice: nothing except a habit of getting messages unread

    Blocker:
    Sees Blockee's profile and unlocked photos.
    Can submit testimonials and photo comments for Blockee to authorize.
    Can send IMs, which the Blockee will see, but will miss anything the Blockee says back.
    Can PM Blockee but can't read replies, or see them in history.
    Can Hotlist or Buddy List. Hotlisting and mutual buddy listing is shown on profile.
    No changes in forum visibility or interaction.


    Hidden Profile:
    Hider:
    Can make and edit posts, as Hidden/Deleted member.
    Can send PM and IM.
    Can send Photo comments and testimonials with username shown.

    All Members:
    Can't initiate IM or PM because profile is gone, but can answer IM or PM received.
    Will notice: "Hidden/Deleted member" in place of the name and picture in every forum post of the Hider.
    Can view the username of the Hider by clicking the "Quote" button on his post.

    To reiterate: Seeing "Hidden/Deleted member" is never anything done to you personally. In the forum it means the guy has hidden his profile from everyone. In the topic list, it means you have Ignored His Posts.


    Reversing Blocks:
    If you have blocked someone accidentally, have changed your mind, or want to see how they have publicly apologized to you, here is what you do:
    To reverse a Site Block, go to the Blockee's profile and click "Unblock him".
    To reverse a Forum Block, click on "buddy and other lists" at the top of any RealJock page. "Manage forum blocks" has your full list. Site Blocks can be viewed and changed here as well.

    If there are no questions, you all may be dismissed to fap or post silliness, as you will. Bumps will make this helpful to more members.
    Please do block wisely.

    It's from a crappy Avril Lavigne Song.

    For you sluts acting like this is common knowledge, j'accuse! Liars. Regardless, this was for the people who didn't know, and there are lots. I've encountered a lot of people thinking "hidden/deleted" means they are blocked, and anger ensues.

    Sorry, I'm a stupid newbie too. I just thought the rules seemed complicated.

    I wasn't talking about you.
    I could have just done a simple version with many details missing.. but if I'm going to bother explaining something, I'm going to do it right so that no one has to come and fill in the gaps, which would be less organized.

    I also pat myself on the back for the formatting. It sucks using this tiny window and the basic controls given.

    You're not blocked, you're an advanced level book. Too difficult for most to understand.
