Can we have a feature where room owners can add users to block/black list so that they cannot chat in the chat rooms?
Yes, I am aware that the chat rooms are open to anyone, and they should be, if somebody is pissed off, they can surely add the user to the ignore list, but what if the things go out of hand sometimes?
I came up with this question because since yesterday we have a user in HTML/CSS/WebDesign room called Illaya (No personal grudges anyways), pings random users for no good reason, and the most annoying thing is that he flags the posts which are not even spammy or offensive... I would attach a screenshot here..
And then he says that he clicked them by mistake. Now the case is edgy, doesn't happen often but would be better if owners got rights to block users, wouldn't this help with the current issue, will also result into less mod intervention, because generally, new users do such stuff.
Anyways we have rooms which can be switched to gallery mode, with owners deciding whom they can provide access, but switching general discussion rooms into gallery is not a good option as many users drop in for help.
If not the block list than can we have a feature where we can disable a particular user to write, or flag or any kind of similar options rather than switching entire room to gallery mode and accepting too many write access?
Any of the below would suffice
- Provide a block list for owners who can add users who are under certain reputation, say < 100 points.
- Increase the reputation required to chat for users
- Disable few functionalities which can be used by users who have low reputation just like Zach recommended.
