Block User Feature
Having been a part of the previous “block user” discussions, and familiar with the issues such systems can cause, like the conversation chain, context, invisible discussions.
i’ve been giving this some thought…
What if instead of Block User, there was a “Hush” feature where when you flag a user as “hushed” you can still see if they comment or are quoted but their content is collapsed and greyed out, but can be expanded if one chooses, similar to flagged posts.
This allows for users to read and get context when needed, and be aware of comments and quotes, without having it in their face.
Also would block direct PMs between those users.
Does that make sense? Just a thought, better then dissapearing them altogether, but also keeping them out of your face.
Comment Flow Master View
I’d love a view where you can see all comments in one spot as they come in, with links to their respective threads, so you can park on that page and see all new conversations as they come in, and like them or pop over to the thread to reply or comment. Kinda a hybrid of the main page and thread view for us bbs lurkers.
I think that Discourse is one of the best forums style software for community building.
